"We might have had better results if we had major-leaguers on the team, but what's done is done".
Let's check out all of the key information from Tuesday's schedule, which will get updated through the conclusion of play. It doesn't matter, because it's here anyway. Israel's final game in Pool A play at the Gocheok Sky Dome - against the Netherlands - is scheduled for 10 p.m. The Dutch handed the ball to former major leaguer Rick Van den Hurk and he pitched four quality innings, limiting the Korea lineup to just three hits and two walks.
Israel took control of the game with four consecutive hits and four runs in the top of the first inning.
Israel will advance to the next round of the tournament, where it will face The Netherlands. Little League World Series powerhouse Chinese Taipei clawed their way back into the game after cutting the lead to 6-3 in the sixth inning.
The Netherlands were expected to handle South Korea and Taipei.
Cuba's hitters could not get anything going in the early proceedings against China's best pitcher, Bruce Chen, a Panama-born left-hander who has 17 years experience in the USA major leagues.
Jack's one of the best - on TV, on a stool, pretty much everywhere - and was well deserving of the award. That would have been a good play had anyone on Chinese Taipei bothered to actually cover first base. Their pitchers hurled scoreless frames in the middle innings, and collectively they walked very few players (just three all game). If both the Netherlands and Chinese Taipei finish their Pool A games with one win and two losses, the Korean team has a shred of hope.

At Sacramento State, Burcham finished with a.278 career batting average, including a.329 average his senior season, where he scored 46 runs, knocked in 33 RBIs and had 80 hits, including nine doubles, six triples and four homers.
Hoffman said he, 8-year-old son Jacob and a 5-foot-tall Mensch mascot watched the win against Chinese Taipei at their home in Cincinnati. But at that point, it wasn't enough to make up such a huge deficit. One of the favorites coming into the tournament, they have been unable to fire up the offense.
Japan 11, Cuba 6 - No Brewers in this one, but Team Japan might have the coolest uniforms in the tournament.
But Israel put the game out of reach in the top of the seventh when they plated five runs.
Japan built a 7-1 lead through five innings and then withstood a late offensive surge from Cuba to pick up an impressive win in the battle between the traditional baseball powers.
In their next at-bat, Taiwan went in front with two runs on a wild pitch by Jair Jurrjens and a sacrifice fly by Lin Chih-sheng. However, a lot of them are Classic first-timers - MVPs Buster Posey and Andrew McClutchen, RBI leader Nolan Arenado, MVP runner Daniel Murphy, and two-time NL MVP runner-up Paul Goldschmidt.
The star for Japan was Norichika Aoki, who doubled and made several fantastic, run-saving plays in center field.
