Kinheim took an 1-0 lead in the first inning off Kevin Roovers. Remco Draijer led off with a single, then advanced when an error was made on a sac-bunt by René Cremer.

Since then, he was sidelined, before making the relief appearance three months later.

In the third inning, the righthander gave up a lead-off double by Jason Halman and was relieved by Joey Eijpe, who gave up a single to Dirk van 't Klooster. After the two runners moved on a sac-bunt by Engelhardt, a run was scored on a single by Michel that made it 2-0. Later in the inning, Kinheim got the bases loaded, but left all three runners, as it did in the first inning.

HCAW got one run back in its third at bat when Adrian Anthony scored with two outs on a single by Michael Pluijmers. In the fourth inning, HCAW came alongside when Juan Miguel Gonzalez reached on an error and scored on a force play-grounder by Mitchel Koot.

Beljaards was replaced by Nick Stuifbergen, who then ended the at bat by striking out Lennart Koster.

In the eighth inning, Kinheim tied the score. Rafaël Jozefa led off with a single and Niels van Weert followed with a double, then pinch-hitter Roy Seltenrijch singled in a run. Moments later, Van Weert scored the tying run on a force play-grounder by Remco Draijer.

In the ninth inning, Kinheim got on base again. With one out, Engelhardt and Michel walked, which marked the end for Melendez, who was relieved by Kyle Ward. With two outs, the lefthander loaded the bases by walking Van Weert, but then Kinheim again left three runners when a groundout followed.

As HCAW was retired in order for the second inning in a row in the ninth by Stuifbergen, the game went into extra innings.
