If Israel wins there will be a 3-way tie breaker with Japan and whoever wins Cuba/Netherlands. They need not only win but run up the score if they can or hope for like a 12-10 win by whoever wins the other game.

EAT ^This is totally wrong. SrulyS nailed the scenarios below.

Mexico was knocked out of round 1 because of the 3 1-2 teams, they allowed most runs. They were pissed because they didn't understand the rules and were "told" otherwise. Check Adrian Gonzalez tweet. They won their last game 11-9.

Would love to see them win just for all of you. Not sure in anyone else is interested in this from the US.
The players are. The passion is incredible if you have been watching any of these games. Many stars sat out, but the ones that did play, really seem to want to win. It's been a ton of fun to watch (not just the Israel games).

Runs allowed per defensive inning, so far:

1. Netherlands (10 runs/19 innings = 0.53)
2. Japan (11 runs/20ip = 0.55)
3. Cuba (12 runs/16ip = 0.75)
4. Israel (13 runs/17ip = 0.76)

Cuba is 0-2 so if Israel wins and Cuba wins there is no tiebreaker.
If Israel wins and Netherlands win there will be a tiebreaker between Japan, Netherlands and Israel.
If Israel loses and Netherlands loses there will be a tiebreaker between Cuba, Netherlands and Israel.

They want to score alot but not allow Japan to score too many runs.

Ugh, you are right... total brain fart I was thinking Cuba beat Japan because they were winning and I got all excited about 4 1-1 teams and that like stuck in my head.

Netherlands just won so Israel has to beat Japan to advance.
If they beat Japan they are guaranteed a spot in the tiebreaker game.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

So basically this is the round they get eliminated. Hard to see them beating Cuba and Japan.
Oh well. Was fun while it lasted.
