The Aussies bounced back from their loss to host Chinese Taipei by jumping out to an 8-0 lead on the Czechs, which was spurred by a 5-run 4th.

Danry Vásquez finished 1-3 and scored Caracas' only run of the evening in the 6th. That actually tied the game at 1, but Zulia responded with a pair in the bottom half of the inning.
