Neptunus had a surprise player in its starting line-up, as 1B Coach Adonis Kemp started in leftfield. As a result, he played together with his son Dwayne Kemp, who was the short stop. Outfielder Eldrion Regina is recovering from an injury and first baseman Jeffrey Arends was unable to arrive on time on the field when his car broke down, meaning the coaching staff had to look for another solution. Head Coach Jan Collins didn't want to use a pitcher in the outfield, so Adonis Kemp volunteered to start in the outfield. Kemp played for several years himself in the Dutch big league (Sparta, ADO, Neptunus) and also is a former National Team-player. And so, he came to bat today in the first inning with a runner on second base and two outs. But Kemp's first at bat in a long time ended in a strikeout. In the second inning, Arends, who in the meantime had arrived, replaced Kemp.

Neptunus opened the score in the second inning when Rien Vernooij doubled and Sape Wagenaar singled, then both scored on a double by Mourik Huijser. Two runs were added in the third inning when Benjamin Dille, Raily Legito and Jeffrey Arends hit three consecutive doubles.

Neptunus then put the game out of reach of ADO when it rallied for six runs in the fourth at bat. In the inning, Arends had a 2-run single and Dwayne Kemp an RBI-double, which was the seventh double of the team in this game.

The final two runs were scored in the fifth inning. Shaldimar Daantji and Eugène Kingsale (who both walked) then scored on a basesloaded single by Raily Legito.

Neptunus-starter Tim Roodenburg gave up a 2-out single in the first inning to Harvey Gumbs, who not only hit the lone ADO-basehit, but also was the lone player to reach base for the team from The Hague.

Except for Sape Wagenaar, all starting Neptunus-players had at least one RBI. Eugène Kingsale hit three doubles in this game.

The Neptunus-pitching took a No-Hitter into the seventh inning. Starter Diegomar Markwell retired the first eleven batters he faced, then Florian Peyrichou reached on an error. But the French international was then retired on a pick-off move by Markwell. In the fifth, Jorian van Acker took over and walked lead-off hitter Eric Deblanc, but then retired the next three batters. In the sixth, Arshwin Asjes struckout three batters to keep the No-Hitter intact. In the seventh, Berry van Driel became the fourth Neptunus-pitcher and he gave up a lead-off double to Pierrick Lemestre, which ended the No-Hitter.
