Two games are played today in Round Two of the inaugural World Baseball Classic. In Pool One, at Angel Stadium, pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka allows one hit in five shutout innings, and Japan beats Mexico, 6 - 1, to put the United States in danger of being eliminated before its next game. If Japan beats South Korea, the US team could be eliminated from contention even before playing Mexico.

 

In Pool Two, Daniel Cabrera pitches four hitless innings with seven strikeouts, and the Dominican Republic one-hits Venezuela to advance to the semifinals with a 2 - 1 victory at Hiram Bithorn Stadium.
