Corendon Kinheim vs. ADO
At Haarlem, Corendon Kinheim rallied for four runs in the eighth inning to increase a 3-1 lead and win 7-1 vs. ADO. Winning pitcher Duko Jansen threw eight innings and struckout nine batters.

In the first inning, ADO got the bases loaded with two outs when Jansen gave up a lead-off double to Gyenuar Lopez, then walked Harvey Gumbs and Sidney Ensermo with two outs, but then ended the at bat with a strikeout. Kinheim then opened the score in its first at bat. Remco Draijer led off with a triple off starter Carlos Tabares Castro, who was the third named starter for this game. Initially, Jurandy Girigori was announced as starter, but earlier today, Head Coach Aldric Dunlop announced that he had switched his Game 2 and Game 3 starters. This meant that Girigori moved to Sunday's game and that Quincy Lambertina was to start today. However, it was Tabares who started the game instead. With Draijer on third base, Tabares gave up an infield-hit to René Cremer that led to a run, but as ADO did in the top half, Kinheim also left three runners behind. After giving up the run, two outs followed, but then Tabares walked Jason Halman and Rafaël Jozefa to load the bases. However, a force play-grounder by Rodney Michel ended the inning.

In the second inning, Kinheim had Onno Jansen (single) and Remco Draijer (walk) on second and first base respectively with one out. Next, René Cremer grounded out to short and when Jansen tried to score on this play, he was eliminated at home in a double play.

Kinheim added a run in the third, but again left the bases loaded. Dirk van 't Klooster and Bryan Engelhardt led off with back-to-back doubles to make it 2-0. After a strikeout, a hit batter and a walk loaded the bases, but then two flyouts followed.

In the fourth inning, Kinheim made it 3-0 when René Cremer reached on a bunt-single with one out, then stole second base, advanced on a wild pitch and scored on a passed ball.

After leaving the bases loaded in the first inning, ADO got three runners again in the fourth, but they also were left. Harvey Gumbs led off with a single, Bas Mol singled with one out and Remco Seitzinger walked with two outs, but a foul-out ended the at bat. In the fifth, Duko Jansen gave up a lead-off single to Gyenuar Lopez, but he was caught stealing, then Jansen retired the next nine batters in a row. With one out in the eighth, pinch-hitter Kevin Nieveld reached on an error and Jaïr Roseburg singled, then a grounder by Harvey Gumbs led ot a run and made it a 3-1 score.

In the seventh inning, Kinheim left the bases loaded for the third time off new pitcher Patrick Wabbijn, but then rallied for four runs in the eighth inning to take more distance. Remco Draijer reached on an error and scored on a single by René Cremer (who was 4-for-5), who was eliminated himself trying to advance to second base. Hereafter, Dirk van 't Klooster and Bryan Engelhardt walked and advanced on a passed ball. Van 't Klooster was then safe when a throwing error to home followed on a grounder by Jason Halman. The bases got loaded when Rafaël Jozefa followed with an infield-hit. A sacrifice fly by Rodney Michel and a passed ball then accounted for two more runs to make it 7-1 in favor of Kinheim, which left 14 runners in this game.
