3/12 Rizzo, Italy to face Dominican team
Anthony Rizzo and Team Italy open up the second round of the World Baseball Classic on Tuesday in Miami against the powerful Dominican Republic team.
“This game is so funny that anyone who’s played it for a long time knows that it doesn’t matter who’s out there,” Rizzo said. “Anyone can beat anyone on any given day. It just depends on that day. Hopefully, the luck keeps turning our way.”
The underdog Italian team advanced from its pool to the second round. Tuesday’s game will be broadcast on MLB Network and ESPN Deportes. Play begins at noon CT at Marlins Park in Miami.
