This time, the Dominican Republic didn’t let the Netherlands interfere with its road to the World Baseball Classic championship.

Moises Sierra hit a tying RBI double in the fifth, Jose Reyes added a go-ahead single two batters later, and the Dominican Republic reached the WBC final with a 4-1 win against the Netherlands Monday night in San Francisco.

Now, it’s Dominican Republic vs. Puerto Rico for the title.

The teams will play Tuesday night at AT&T Park just three days after the Dominicans (7-0) won Saturday’s matchup in Miami.

One of these proud island nations will get to throw quite a party. Tuesday's winner will earn the distinction of being world champion for the first time in the three-event history of the WBC.

Puerto Rico eliminated two-time defending Classic champion Japan, 3-1, Sunday night.

Fernando Rodney finished Monday’s win by the Dominican Republic for his sixth save of the tourney. The Dominicans were still fuming four years after the Netherlands beat them twice in the 2009 WBC’s first round for a stunning early exit.
