Dice Leads Japan Past Cuba

Daisuke Matsazaka (6-5-0-0-8, 86) led Japan to a 6-0 win over Cuba this afternoon in San Diego.

All five hits were singles and of his 86 pitches, 61 were strikes. So in facing 22 batters, he threw only 25 balls. Nice! In three starts against Cuba, Dice has a 1.96 ERA.

The United States plays the Netherlands tonight. The loser is eliminated from the WBC.

UPDATE: USA wins 9-3.
