Dominican Republic wins World Baseball Classic

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Edwin Encarnacion hit a two-run double in the first inning that held up, and the Dominican Republic capped a dominant, unbeaten run through the World Baseball Classic with a 3-0 win against Puerto Rico for the championship.

Erick Aybar added an RBI double to back winner Samuel Deduno, and the demonstrative Dominican righty threw his arms into the air in delight after watching a run-saving defensive gem by center fielder Alejandro De Aza in a tough fifth.

Cheers of “Dominicana! Dominicana!” rang out through the rain at AT&T Park all the way to the streets of Santo Domingo.
