The pitching took over from there, as Tyler Randerson (New Hamburg, ON) and New Zealand’s Daniel Chapman both retired the side in order in each of the second and third innings. Team Canada got a leadoff walk in the fourth, but the runner was retired on a double play to end the inning. New Zealand got a runner on base on a dropped third strike in the bottom of the frame, but Canada threw the runner out stealing to keep the score 1-0.

Derek Hyde (Tavistock, ON) drew a walk to load the bases with one out, but a strikeout and a ground out to third left three runners stranded on base. New Zealand added to its lead with a run in the bottom of the fifth when the leadoff batter walked, stole second, advanced to third on an error and scored on a groundout to shortstop.
In the sixth, Lemieux connected with a one-out single but was wiped out on a fielder’s choice followed by a ground out to keep Canada off the scoreboard. New Zealand added its third run in the bottom of the frame when the first batter doubled and was sacrificed to third before scoring on a two-out single.
Canada mounted a comeback in the top half of the seventh with Randerson leading off with a single to left followed by a walk to put two runners on base. After a fly out to center advanced Randerson to third, he scored on a ground out. However, the next batter grounded out to end the ball game.
