Team USA got into a hole early against the Netherlands, after starting pitcher RHP Blake Dickerson gave up a home run during each of the first two innings, putting the Americans into a 3-0 hole after the top of the second. However, Dickerson would settle in and Team USA went on to score nine unanswered runs to win its first game of the event.
Dickerson’s final line: 4.1 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 6 K, 2 BB on 70 pitches.
RHP Cameron Tilly and LHP Alexander Clemmey combined for 2.2 shutout relief innings, with Tilly tossing 1.2 innings and striking out one while allowing just one base runner and Clemmey walking the first batter he faced, but striking out the next two and inducing a groundout to end the game. Tilly was credited with the win.
DH Aidan Miller led the Americans offensively, going 2-for-2 with a pair of triples, a walk and a hit by pitch. He didn’t make an out during the game and he recorded three runs himself—the most on the team—while hitting out of the No. 6 spot in the lineup.
3B Colt Emerson also had a productive day at the plate, going 2-for-3 with a double, a single, a walk and a run scored.
1B Bryce Eldridge was responsible for breaking the game open for Team USA, as his fifth inning grand slam broke a 3-3 tie and gave the Americans a lead they would not relinquish.
Altogether, Team USA tallied eight hits—six of which were of the extra-base variety—while walking twice as often (8) as they struck out (4) and playing a clean defensive game in the field with no errors.
