Miggy’s home run saved Team Venezuela from elimination in the WBC.

Many teams have learned just how dangerous it is to face Miguel Cabrera in the ninth inning of a close game. Team Italy found this out the hard way in their Pool D tiebreaker against Team Venezuela.

Following Cabrera’s game-tying solo shot, Victor Martinez walked and Team Venezuela scored another run on a long Rougned Odor single to deep center.
