USA vs Puerto Rico in championship tonight at 9:00 ET on MLB Network - Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman against the Mets' Seth Lugo. USA beat Japan last night 2-1 to advance.

Money on PR, heart with USA.  USA usually doesn't win this tournament.  

Going to turn it on now

Watching on ESPN and the announcer did the call on the HR in Spanish. Switched to the MLB channel.

I've watched them all on mlb.

Correction above is that USA has never won this tourney

Gee I wonder why ESPN is bleeding subscribers at an alarming rate.

From what I could gather from wiki is that maybe MLB has English TV rights and ESPN was given the scraps and the Spanish language broadcast with their ESPN Deportes broadcast

I'm not an ESPN apologist and don't really care what they put on espn2, trying to explain why they did what they did. Maybe the world billiards championship took a backseat tonight on espn2. You made a statement about bleeding viewers, I'm saying they took what they could get and got the game in Spanish which would have been better than 2012 WSP reruns.

That USA pitcher was lights out against a good hitting team.

On top of that, this is first time USA made it to the championship game. Furthest they got previously was semis in 2009.

USA wins!

U-S-A, U-S-A, U-S-A
