Home team scored against him and William Germain finished the eight run inning with a three run homerun.

With increased rain in the sixth inning increased the lead of the hosts until they led 13-0. Eagles sent Tadeáš Zavadil on the mound to stop the game from finishing early. He stopped German bats with a strikeout and Eagles got a chance to do something about the result in the seventh inning since home team substituted well pitching Jared Mortensen from the mound, with national team pitcher Mike Bolsenbroek coming in for him. Marek Slabý welcomed him with the second Eagles hit, but German pitcher then struck out two and finished the game.
