Today the following games were scheduled: Meerlease Pioniers @ Curaçao Neptunus, Oosterhout Twins @ DSS, Quick Amersfoort @ L&D Amsterdam and Silicon Storks @ HCAW.
Meerlease Pioniers 0 – 6 Curaçao Neptunus
Another easy win for Curaçao Neptunus. In fact two one run innings were enough to clinch the win but in the fifth inning, the team pushed for more runs in the fifth. Two singles, a double, two groundouts and three walks led to four more runs for Neptunus.
In six innings, Misja Harcksen gave up six hits and a walk and struck out three for the win. Nevertheless, manager Ronald Jaarsma pulled him after six innings and only seventy-six pitches. Lars Broersen took the loss after 3.2 innings in which he gave up two runs on two hits and two walks.
Dudley Leonora was the best hitter for Neptunus, going 3 for 4 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored.
Oosterhout Twins 2 – 3 DSS
After DSS took a 1-0 lead in the third inning, it took Oosterhout Twins until the seventh inning to tie the game. But in the bottom of that inning, DSS scored the go-ahead run on a Mitchell Dautzenberg’s single. But once again, Twins tied the game when Dennis de Quint hit a sac fly to right field that drove in Jerzy van Gool for the tying run.
But in the eighth inning, Raf Cocu, who replaced Marvin Brown in the seventh, gave up a solo home run to Runai Coran, that put the final score on the board.
Alexander Valdez earned the win after 2.2 innings in relief in which he gave up one run on one hit and a walk. Raf Cocu took the loss.
Runai Coran went 3 for 4 with a home run, an RBI and a run scored.
Quick Amersfoort 3 – 0 L&D Amsterdam Pirates
Back-to-back singles by Taylor Clemensia and Rowan van Hoek drove in two runs for Quick Amersfoort in the fourth inning. Two innings later, Clemensia drove in another run with a single to left field. But Pirates had a golden opportunity to get on the board when it loaded the bases with no outs. But an infield fly and a double play ended the aspirations for Pirates in that fifth inning. The fact that Pirates only had runners in scoring position twice besides the fifth inning, says a lot of how the lineup was kept in check by Brian van Laar and two relievers. Van Laar lasted seven innings and surrendered five hits for the win. Despite striking out ten, Jim Ploeger took the loss as he gave up three runs on six hits and three walks.
Bryan Engelhardt and Taylor Clemensia both went 2 for 4. Engelhardt had a double and Clemensia drove in two.
Silicon Storks 4 – 8 HCAW
Two big innings, a three-run first, that gave them a one-run lead and a four-run fifth were enough for the win. But in the ninth, Storks loaded the bases and scored twice on a single to right center field by Giovanny Perez.
Dennis Burgersdijk pitched the necessary five innings for the win. He gave up two runs on six hits and two walks as he struck out eight. Nick Winkel took the loss after four innings in which he allowed four runs on five hits and six walks as he struck out one.
Patrick Bok was the best hitter for HCAW as he went 2 for 3 with two runs scored.
