Wright Rallys USA Past PR and Into Semi-Finals

What a game! Team USA down 5-3 in the ninth and manages three runs in their last at-bat to avoid elimination from the WBC and sends Puerto Rico home.

David Wright got a two-run single off of Puerto Rico closer Fernando Cabrera to win the game and send Team USA in the semi-finals. If you watched this game you saw Home Runs from Carlos Delgado, Alex Rios and Kevin Youkilis. But with the Semi-Finals on the line Puerto Rico couldn't close the door and blew a two run lead in the final inning.

Puerto Rico beat Team USA on Saturday night but lost to Venezula last night, which forced tonight's do-or-die match-up. Puerto Rico looked strong throughout the tournament but within a 24 hour span, they lost twice and find themselves going home.

Team USA now faces Venezula in the Semi-Finals in Los Angeles.
