The morning game of day 2 featured Spain vs. Belgium. Both teams won their first games on Saturday and are contenders for a trip to the WBSC Olympic Qualifiers in Bologna. The Spanish showed from the beginning on, how serious their mission was: Engel Beltre started off with a leadoff homerun, Jesus Ustariz followed with a two-run-shot and Jesus Martinez added the third dinger of the game to make it 4:0 after the first inning.
Also Belgium knows how to hit: Thomas De Wolf hit his first dinger of the tournament to add the first Belgian run to the score board. It kept raining home runs when Spain added another one in the 5th inning, followed by three hits and an error for five more runs. Even though the Red Hawks added for more runs in the course of the game, the Spanish hit more home runs for a final score of 13:5.
BEL: Sam Boermans: 2 for 3, 2B, HR, 2 RBI
ESP: Jesus Martinez: 2 for 3, HR, RBI; Jesus Ustariz 2 for 5, HR, 2 RBI, 2 R
