USA Baseball is set take on the Dominican Republic in what is tantamount to the losers bracket of the elimination round in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. Team USA fell to Japan, 7-6, on Monday, losing in extra innings despite building a 6-3 lead with a Triston Casas three-run homer in the fifth inning. 

The Dominican Republic knocked Israel out on Tuesday with a walk-off single from José Bautista. Yes, that José Bautista. 

Japan and South Korea square off Wednesday in the top of the bracket. The winner of that game heads to the gold medal game. The loser of USA-Dominican Republic, meanwhile, will not be eligible for gold and will instead move to the bronze medal game.
