Belgean Starter Artuur Driessen (4.2 IP, 9 H, 6 R, 3 ER, L) did not get much help from his defense and was liftet for Ben van Nuffel.

Andy Paz und Bastien Dagneau hit bombs that landed in the outfield stands and provided a convincing 12:1 lead. Belgium did get one run back but could not prevent the premature ending.
