3 tie-breaks on Sunday; late win for Amsterdam
THE HAGUE / ROTTERDAM / UTRECHT / BUSSUM (Neth.) -
On Sunday, three games went into extra innings and therefore had to be decided through the tie-break rule which is in use for the first time this season.
The most remarkable game today was that between ADO and L&D Amsterdam Pirates, respectively the last placed and first placed team in the league.
Going into the ninth inning, ADO led 6-2 and was only one out away from its first home victory of the season.
But with two outs, and still leading 6-3, the lead vanished as Amsterdam came alongside and forced extra innings.
In the tenth, Amsterdam again scored four runs to win 10-6.
UVV trailed 3-0 in the fifth inning, but then came alongside against Sparta-Feyenoord, which took a 4-3 lead in the top of the 10th inning.
But moments later, UVV scored twice to win 5-4.
Corendon Kinheim broke a 2-2 tie in the seventh inning vs. DOOR Neptunus and went on to win 5-2.
In the evening, the game between Mr. Cocker HCAW and Vaessen Pioniers also went into extra innings.
Initially, HCAW failed to hold onto a lead twice, then trailed 4-3 in the tenth inning.
But after tying the score in the home half of that at bat, HCAW went on to win 5-4 in the eleventh inning in a game that lasted almost 3 1/2 hours and ended at 9:35 PM.
