theScore logo theScore 3/21/2017

Wladimir Balentien continues to put on a show at the World Baseball Classic.

The Netherlands slugger clobbered an 89-mph fastball from Puerto Rico starter Jorge Lopez in the first inning of Monday's semifinal to give the Dutch an early 2-0 lead.

Balentien - who leads the tournament with four home runs - knew the ball was headed for the Dodger Stadium seats as soon as he made contact, and followed with an exuberant bat flip while pounding his chest and pointing to the Netherlands dugout.
