" Netherlands topples Dominican Republic at WBCBy OMAR MARRERO – 8 hours agoSAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Stunned twice by a pesky Netherlands team, the Dominican Republic is done at the World Baseball Classic.Eugene Kingsale singled in the tying run and scored the game-winner in the 11th inning Tuesday night as the Netherlands rallied for a 2-1 victory over the heavily favored Dominicans, earning a surprise spot in the second round.After an error by first baseman Willy Aybar allowed the winning run to score, Netherlands players rushed out of the dugout and piled all over each other in a raucous celebration that resembled a World Series finale.Jose Reyes, Robinson Cano and other Dominican stars slumped quietly in the dugout, staring ahead in shock."This is a miracle. The Dominican Republic is one of the best teams in the world," Netherlands manager Rod Delmonico said with tears in his eyes. "It is difficult to describe what took place. These kids have fought for three days. I have never had a team with this much passion.""cont'dhttp://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5gcyGhwG3Mt...
