Yanks win, Cano and Marte to return to Yankees

Shelley Duncan's three-run homer and Juan Miranda's solo shot led the Yankees to a 7-1 victory over the Reds tonight.  Joba Chamberlain made the start, and gave up one run over three innings.

Phil Coke, Kei Igawa, Christian Garcia and Anthony Claggett combined for six shutout frames.  Cody Ransom, Brett Gardner and Ramiro Pena each had two-hit games.

Robinson Cano and Damaso Marte along with the rest of the Domincan Republic were eliminated from the W.B.C. tonight by the Netherlands.  It was an incredible game.  

Both teams were scoreless through ten innings, but the Dominican scored a run in the top of the eleventh on a fielding blunder by the right fielder.  Sure enough, the right fielder came up in the bottom of the eleventh and tied it back up with an RBI single.  The Netherlands went on to win the game that inning after a throwing error and a fielding error.

That Netherlands-Dominican game was a tremendous contest. It's too bad errors played such a big role in its conclusion. Nevertheless, I can't recall a similar upset in baseball. A single-A, perhaps double-A team beat a major league All-Star team, and the All-Stars were really, really trying!

I can't agree more.
