Schwarber, Realmuto and Turner all starting for the US. Nick Ward playing 1B for GB. Old friend Darnell Sweeney playing (and kind of butchering) SS. Vance Worley with the start.
Elsewhere Jayden Estanista got the start this morning and pitched 2 scoreless for the Netherlands against Italy (though the next pitcher gave up a bunch of runs). Pool A (by far the weakest of the pools) looks like it will finish with all 5 teams at 2-2. Good luck with that tiebreaker.
Looked it up. Here is the tiebreaker:
1. Lowest quotient of fewest runs allowed divided by the number of defensive outs recorded in games between the teams that are tied.
2. Lowest quotient of fewest earned runs allowed divided by the number of defensive outs recorded in games between the teams that are tied.
3. Highest batting average in games in that round between the teams tied.
Maybe they should just go with run differential? Or home run derby?
