USA vs Japan semifinal live

The United States will play its first World Baseball Classic semifinal game in eight years on Tuesday night, battling regular tournament power Japan at Dodger Stadium.Tuesday’s semifinal will be televised by MLB Network at 9 p.m. ET, with Matt Vasgersian calling the play-by-play alongside analyst John Smoltz, with reporter Jon Morosi delivering the goods from both dugouts. Online streaming is available through MLB Network, with adequate television provider authentication.

Japan has reached the semifinals of all four World Baseball Classics, the only team to do so, winning the championship in both 2006 and 2009. This year, even without international sensation and two-way star Shohei Otani — nursing an ankle injury — Japan is undefeated through two rounds, winning all six games in Tokyo.This is the second time in four WBC tournaments that the United States has reached the final four. The last time was in 2009, when Team USA lost to eventual tournament champion Japan.

 The United States will send Washington Nationals pitcher Tanner Roark to the mound on Tuesday night. Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Chris Archer, who pitched four perfect innings in the first round but left to rejoin the Rays last week, was originally planning to rejoin Team USA to potentially pitch one of the final two games, but received word on Sunday morning that would no longer be the case.
