Jonathan Schoop Was The Hero For The Netherlands Last Night
While you were sleeping (I wasn’t because I suffer from insomnia), Jonathan Schoop was in full on beast mode for The Netherlands in their 6-2 win over Cuba in the World Baseball Classic.
Schoop hit a three run home run, his second bomb in the WBC, and added an RBI double in the eighth inning to give The Netherlands a comfortable 4 run lead. He finished the night 3-for-6.
Defensively, the Orioles prospect was a part of four double plays.
Schoop started slow in the tournament, going 1-for-9 before his two-run home run against Australia. But he’s red hot now though.
Adam Jones and Team USA take the field tonight against Mexico at 9 PM. They play Italy at 9 PM on Saturday and Canada at 4 PM on Sunday.
