World Baseball Classic 2013: Games and TV schedule for Wednesday

USA TODAY Sports

Just one WBC game on the docket for Wednesday, as Italy takes on Puerto Rico in an elimination showdown.

Elimination from Pool 2 is on the line in today's lone WBC match-up.

Here's what/when/how to watch:

Italy vs. Puerto Rico: Wednesday, 7:00 p.m. local, 7:00 p.m. ET

Venue: Marlins Park, Miami, Florida

TV: MLB Network (U.S.), ESPN Deportes (U.S.)

Italy couldn't quite hold on to upset the Dominican Republic on Tuesday, so they're going to have to take down Puerto Rico this evening if they want to keep their WBC title hopes alive. Italy got a three-run home run early on Tuesday to give them a bit of a buffer, but managed only three lousy singles for the rest the game, so their offense is going to have to wake up if they want have any chance of avoiding elimination. Right-hander Giancarlo Alvarado will take the hill for Puerto Rico, while Alessandro Maestri will get the start for the Italians.

Starting Pitchers: RHP Alessandro Maestri vs. RHP Giancarlo Alvarado
