On a night of three doubles and two singles matches, Team USA extended their slender overnight lead by edging the opener through captain Johnny Archer and Mike Dechaine.
But the hosts hit back with three straight wins to take the lead - Nikos Ekonomopoulos winning his second match of the week 5-3 against Shane Van Boening.
Niels Feijen, who whitewashed Dechaine in Tuesday's singles, teamed up with Nick van den Berg to see off Dennis Hatch and partner Brandon Shuff 5-2.
And Chris Melling, who had lost the top match with Darren Appleton, made amends with a 5-3 victory over Hatch.
But Archer led from the front once more, this time partnering van Boening to a 5-4 win over Feijen and the unfortunate Appleton in the final game of the evening.
Play resumes on day three of four with three singles matches plus two more doubles.
