Box score

In probably one of the most dramatic games in tournament history Australia stayed alive. The team from Down Under beat Curacao 8-7 after 12 innings. Australia first tied the game with three runs in the bottom of the ninth and then erased a 6-7 deficit in the bottom of the third extra inning thanks to a single by David Kandilas, which scored two after an error in center field. Trent Oeltjen hit a home run for the Aussies. Josh Tols earned the win with three innings of relief. Hershelon Juliana got charged with the loss.

Regensburg’s Mike Bolsenbroek conceded only four hits and a walk in seven scoreless innings for the win. Kevin Kelly and Loek van Mil closed out the shutout with scoreless frames. Shuya Kanno took the loss, surrendering six hits, three runs (2 ER) and a base on balls in three innings.
