The second round of the 2017 World Baseball Classic will be completed on Saturday with a pair of games at Petco Park in San Diego, highlighted by an elimination game between the United States and Dominican Republic.

Puerto Rico has beaten both teams in Pool F, including a 6-5 victory on Friday night to clinch a berth in the WBC semifinals, beginning Monday at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.

On Saturday, Puerto Rico concludes its second-round schedule against Venezuela at 3:30 p.m. ET. Venezuela (0-2 in Pool F) was eliminated with Friday night’s win by Puerto Rico.

That leaves the United States and Dominican Republic, both 1-1 in the second round. The winner on Saturday night will be the runner-up in Pool F and move on to play Japan in the second WBC semifinal on Tuesday night in Los Angeles. On Monday, Puerto Rico plays Netherlands in the first semifinal.

Team USA played the Dominican Republic once already in this tournament, falling 7-5 on March 11 in Miami, a game the United States led 5-0 at one point.

On Saturday night in San Diego, Danny Duffy will start for the United States, facing Dominican right-hander Ervin Santana.
