Japan defeats Cuba 5-8 [Boxscore]

JG: It appears to me that Cuba has been eliminated, but let's wait for the official word.

Juventud Rebelde newspaper @ 9:52 a.m. this morning:

Cae Cuba nuevamente ante el equipo japonés, en un partido en el cual estuvieron encima en el marcador en varias oportunidades. Se reducen, de esta forma, las posibilidades de clasificación a una victoria sobre Holanda y luego un partido de desempate.

JG: Translation: Cuba falls again to the Japanese team, in a game where they were on top several times. The possibilities of classifying have been reduced to this: victory over The Netherlands [tonight] and later on a tie breaker game win for Cuba.

In my humble opinion, the odds are a against Cuba. The Netherlands has a very strong team.

We will have to wait and see.
