With two outs, the bases got loaded when Aldi Guzman also walked. All three runners scored when Joran Berkhout followed with a baseclearing double.

The early deficit was erased by DSS in the second inning when the team rallied for five runs. The Haarlem-squad was retired in order in the first inning by Martin Kram, but produced five basehits in the second at bat. Denzel Richardson led off with a double and Omar Williams was hit by a pitch. A double by Koen Halderman, passed ball and single by Djewi De Lanoi then resulted in three runs to tie the score. With one out, De Lanoi scored the next run on a single by Mitchel Dautzenberg. With two outs, Kevin Nieveld and Odion Gouverneur both walked and Tino van Erk added a runscoring single to make it a 5-3 score.

In the fourth, DSS increased its lead to 6-4. With two outs, Odion Gouverneur reached on a bunt-single and went on to score on a single by Tino van Erk.

It became a new ball-game when Storks tied the score in the bottom of the fourth off of new pitcher Mike Groen. Both runs were unearned, as the DSS-defense committed two errors. Lead-off hitter Quinlan de Windt reached on an error and moved on a sacrfice bunt and a single by Runai Coran. In a double-steal situation, De Windt scored. Later, Coran scored the tying run when an error followed a single by Kendick Delima.

Storks broke the 6-6 score in the fifth inning by scoring two more runs. Giovanny Perez then led off with a single and scored on an one-out double by Quinlan de Windt. The latter scored moments later on a single by Jurrian Dijk.

Leading 9-7, Storks added two more runs in the final two at bats. In the eighth, Aldi Guzman led off with a single and scored on an one-out single by Sergio Schoop. In the ninth, Tyron de Windt opened with a double and scored on a double play-grounder.
