The strong Dutch offense left Team Belgium no chance and won by the 15-Run-Rule. Key to victory for the Netherlands were eight Home Runs.
The Belgian team got off to a good start taking a two to zero lead in the top of the first inning. But the Dutch team managed to strike back immediately, scoring five runs off of three Home Runs in the bottom half. In the following innings they kept hitting the Belgian pitching really well, scoring twelve more runs on five Home Runs and ending the game in the fifth inning. With todays performance the Dutch team showed why they are the biggest candidate to win the European Champinoship yet again.
The Dutch starter Orlando Yntema threw the entire five innings holding the Belgian offense to two runs. Calten Daal, Roger Bernadina, Curt Smith, Ademar Rifaela, Dashenko Ricardo, Kalian Sams as well as Hendrik Clementina each hit Home Runs with Clementina standing out by hitting two. The Belgians had a very bad day with every pitcher allowing multiple runs and only two batters managing to record hits.
After the impressive win the Netherlands secured their spot in the Semifinals, Team Belgium faces getting knocked out of the tournament.
