WBC 2017: Thursday's schedule, results, and standings

A new Friar and an old Friar face off on the mound in a round 2 showdown between Venezuela and the Dominican Republic.

Baseball: World Baseball Classic-Venezuela at USA Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight at Petco Park in San Diego, the World Baseball Classic continues with a game between Venezuela and the Dominican Republic.

Team Venezuela is coming off a tough 4-2 loss to the United States last night, and they're seeking their first win of the second round. The Dominican Republic is also looking to stave off their second loss after suffering defeat Tuesday night at the hands of Puerto Rico.

On the hill for Venezuela will be Jhoulys Chacin, making his first appearance on the mound at Petco Park since joining the Padres in December. This will be Chacin's second appearance in the 2017 WBC. His first was a relief outing and he was knocked around, giving up five earned runs on four hits (two homers) and a walk through 3 2/3 innings.

Another player with Padres ties will take the mound for the Dominican Republic. The nod goes to former Friar Edinson Volquez, who looks to redeem himself after a somewhat erratic start his previous time out. He pitched 3 2/3 innings in a first-round game against Team USA on Saturday, giving up three runs (one earned) on six hits (though two errors from the Dominican defense didn't help his cause).
