Twins' Deduno leads Dominican Republic over USA at WBC


The Dominican Republic stayed undefeated with a 3-1 win over Team USA in the quarterfinal round of the World Baseball Classic on Thursday night.

A majority of the fans in Miami were cheering for the Dominicans, who received an outstanding start from Minnesota Twin Samuel Deduno.

The right-hander, who may not even be in the Twins starting rotation at the beginning of the upcoming season, allowed just one run and struck out seven in four innings. He allowed five hits and walked two.

The game was tied, 1-1 before the Dominican Republic scored two runs off of Craig Kimbrel in the top of the ninth.

Team USA had just six hits in the game. Joe Mauer had two singles, increasing his average in the tournament to a robust .500.
