Baseball: Dutch defeat Australia 4-1

Jonathan Schoop's two-run homer helped the Netherlands to a 4-1 victory over Australia Tuesday in the first round of the World Baseball Classic, keeping alive Dutch hopes of a second round place. The Dutch saw their win-loss record improve to 2-1, following an earlier 8-3 defeat to Taiwan, while the underdog Aussies finished winless in pool B. Taiwan, who lead the group with two wins, will later in the day face South Korea, who have one win and a loss, in a game before an expected sell-out crowd of 20,000 fans in the central city of Taichung.
