Curaçao Neptunus 15 – 1 Pickles UVV
Curaçao Neptunus needed just six innings to end the game in Utrecht. A devastating third inning was too much to overcome for Pickles UVV.
After Neptunus had taken a 2-0 lead when Stijn van der Meer reached on a fielding error and scored on a double hit by Benjamin Dille, who scored on a single by Dwayne Kemp, Pickles UVV cut the lead in half in the second inning. With Orlando Yntema replaced after just one inning by Elton Koeiman, Julian Rip led off the inning with a double, advanced to third on a groundout and scored on a sac fly by Jelle Blaauw. Jurjen van Zijl recorded two outs but couldn’t get out of the inning as he gave up eleven runs. Five singles, two double, a triple and a homerun led to the eleven runs.
Neptunus would score two more runs in the course of the game that ended it in six innings because of the poor field conditions due to heavy rain fall.
