  • Flag of Czech Republic Czech Republic 24, Flag of Netherlands Netherlands 9. With all four teams at 1-1 going into today, the winners of the last round-robin games would go on to the finals. A day after their first win ever, the Czech ladies get an even bigger win. SS Kristýna El Ghannam (4 H) and 1B Petra Kolkusová each score four times while Karolína Blažková gets the win by pitching shutout ball over the final three innings. A day after taking part in a no-hitter, Ciska Welboren is the losing hurler, one of six Dutch pitchers who fails to stop the Czech offense. DH/RF Kim Schindeler has two runs and two RBI for the Orange.
  • Flag of France France 13, Flag of United Kingdom United Kingdom 12. The hosts nearly get upset again, as Leonie Pauthe allows eight runs in two innings and Britain leads 12-6 after 5 when starter Claury Scatliffe exits. The bullpen blows it, though, allowing six in the bottom of the 6th. In the bottom of the 7th, CF Emma Patry is hit by a pitch from Dora Lau then steals and takes third on a throwing error by the catcher on the play. 3B Marjorie Brunel (the 2019 tourney MVP) walks and C Yasmine Derbal is intentionally walked. SS Léna Sellam then singles to drive in Patry with Patry's third run. Coralie Guillemin gets the win after pitching a shutout top of the 7th. For Britain, 1B Amy Trask has 3 hits and 4 RBI while 2B/3B Laura Hirai scores three times.
