Friday night at San Diego’s Petco Park, USA and Puerto Rico will play a game with fairly large stakes in the 2017 World Baseball Classic. The winning team will be all but assured of a spot in the semi-finals. The WBC final four, if you will. The loser will not be eliminated, though their next game Saturday will essentially become a must-win.

On the mound Friday night will be Blue Jays right-hander Marcus Stroman for USA and Mets right-hander Seth Lugo for Puerto Rico. Stroman threw 4 2/3 scoreless innings against the high-powered Dominican Republic in the first round of the WBC. Lugo, meanwhile, tossed 5 1/3 scoreless innings against Venezuela in his first WBC start. Each club is sending out their best starter.
