There are five high-stakes WBC games today to follow today.

The World Baseball Classic is in full force today. There are five games. Pools C and D each have two games. Second round play from Pool E begins from Tokyo as well.

Pool C:

Colombia vs. Canada, 10:00 MT

USA vs. Dominican Republic, 3:30 MT

Pool D:

Venezuela vs. Italy, 12:00 MT

Puerto Rico vs. Mexico, 6:30 MT

Pool E:

Cuba vs. Israel, 7:00 MT

The games overlap today, but you should be able to find the one you want to watch with one of MLB Network, MLB.tv, and ESPN Deportes (via WatchESPN).

The game between the USA and the Dominican Republic will see Marcus Stroman face Edinson Vólquez. The winner of the game will advance to the next round, while the loser will face the winner of the matchup between Colombia and Canada. The game at Marlins Park in Miami is sold out, and there should be a great mix of US supporters and inflatable plantain carrying fans in support of the Dominican Republic.
