This time, it’s Romero who falls victim to the “wrong way dive”, enabling the Netherlands to begin a potential comeback.

Just past Cillessen, who nearly managed to get a hand on it.

Even with the lack of action until the penalty shootout, this match was still the third-most tweeted of the World Cup so far.

Drumroll please!

No good! Vlaar can’t get it past Romero, who appears to block this one with his forearm. That’s gonna hurt in the morning…

Two saves so far in penalty time, both by Romero — who made an excellent deflection here to rob Sneijder.

Some credit is due for Cillessen, though — he somewhat dove in the right direction.

Well, you didn’t think he’d let Argentina have it that easily, did you?

Psst… wrong direction.

Welcome Back!

A subpar performance this year (.153 average heading into tonight) led to Grossman’s demotion back to Triple-A Oklahoma City, but he was called back up to provide some outfield help in the wake of DL stints by both Dexter Fowler and Alex Presley.

Grossman may not hit as well or as consistently as those two, but he does flash some pop every now and then. Tonight, he lined a laser just inside the foul line off Yu Darvish to knot the game up at 4.
