The Netherlands bounce back, win against Israel

After their loss to Japan, The Netherlands bounced back in the 2017 World Baseball Classic second round by winning against Israel.

The Dutch scored early and often, getting their revenge against a team that was still undefeated in the tournament and had beaten them 4-2 in the first round. Jair Jurrjens tossed six innings of a one-run ball and got the win. Didi Gregorius led the Dutch offense, going 2 for 3 with a home-run and five runs batted in.
