Houston Astros star Jose Altuve will undergo surgery due to a right hand injury.
Bard took over from Lance Lynn to start the pitch and was wild throughout the match, passing two batters and throwing a couple of wild passes.
Bard, a 37-year-old right-hander, allowed all four batters he faced to reach base as Venezuela overcame a three-point deficit to take a 6–5 lead. Venezuela ultimately lost 9-7 after Trea Turner won the Grand Slam in the eighth inning for the United States.
Turner’s grand slam took the Americans to the semi-finals, where they face Cuba on Sunday night. The winner will be whoever wins the showdown between Japan or Mexico in the final.
