Quick Amersfoort set the tone in the first inning by taking a quick lead, scoring three runs, two of them on a homerun.
The home-team rallied for four more in the third at bat and finished the game in seven innings.

With one out, Johnny Schmook reached on a bunt-single and Giovanny Perez singled.

But Van Laar then closed with a called strikeout.
