Puerto Rico's elimination win over the Dominican Republic came with emotional whiplash immediately after the game.
New York Mets closer Edwin Díaz, who closed out the game to send Puerto Rico to the quarterfinals, had to be carried off the field in a wheelchair after sustaining an apparent leg injury while celebrating the win with his teammates.
Díaz's teammates, jubilant a moment ago, were openly crying as Díaz sat on the mound with his head in his hands. The group included his brother, Cincinnati Reds reliever Alexis Díaz.
