USA Form

The USA lost once in the group stage, but that did not derail their quest to make it to the final.

The Americans opened the tournament with a 6-2 win against Great Britain, only to then lose 11-5 against Mexico.

They rebounded with a 12-1 blowout of Canada before concluding the group stage with a 3-2 win against Columbia.

The United States then beat Venezuela in 9-7 in the quarter-finals, before dominating Cuba in a 14-2 victory in the semi-finals.

Japan Form

Japan go into the World Baseball Classic with a perfect record, having won all six of their games so far.

They opened their Pool B campaign with an 8-1 rout of China, and backed that up with three more convincing wins as they marched into the knockout stage.

Japan cruised to a 13-4 win against South Korea, before beating the Czech Republic 10-2 and Australia 7-1.

They then downed Italy 9-3 in the quarter-finals, before battling past Mexico in a thrilling semi-final, 6-5.


This is likely to be a classic matchup between the two best nations in baseball.

The USA are coming in hot, and they are backed to come out on top in a high-scoring showdown.
