ADO vs. Corendon Kinheim
At The Hague, Kinheim had only one more basehit than ADO, but scored seven more runs than their opponent.

Kinheim hit only four basehits off lefthanded starter Nick Martin, who made his debut in the Dutch big league. But the American also walked four batters, two of which scored and also uncorked a runscoring wild pitch.

Kinheim struck early in the first inning when Bryan Engelhardt hit a 2-out, 2-run homerun. Engelhardt had also homered in the opener on Thursday-evening. One run was added in the third when Björn Henrichs walked and scored on a sac-fly by René Cremer.

In the fourth, Jason Halman singled and scored on a wild pitch, then later in the at bat, Rafaël Jozefa scored on a grounder by Roy Seltenrijch. Kinheim made it 6-0 in the fifth when Martin walked Remco Draijer, who then scored on a single by Dirk van 't Klooster.

Trailing 6-0, ADO narrowed the deficit by scoring three runs in the fifth inning off starter Duko Jansen. Remco Seitzinger (single) and Jarreau Martina (fielder's choice) were on base when an error on a force play-grounder by Raynard Doran loaded the bases. Next, Gernald Nicolaas (2-run) and Jay Lopez singled to bring in three runs, but then two outs followed to end the inning.

In the seventh inning, off new pitcher Quincy Lambertina, Kinheim added a run on an error, then scored three more runs in the eighth. Jason Halman then led off with a double and scored on a single by Rafaël Jozefa, which was followed by a 2-run homerun by Rodney Michel, increasing the lead to 10-3. A sac-fly by René Cremer later in the inning made it 11-4.

ADO scored only one more run in its ninth inning off Steven van Groningen, who had just relieved Pim Walsma, who in his turn had come on in the seventh inning. Van Groningen walked lead-off hitter Gino Hersilia, who then scored on an error.

In the first, Roelie Henrique doubled with one out of starter Dennis Burgersdijk, then Sidney de Jong and Percy Isenia walked to load the bases. The first run was then scored by Henrique when next hitter Bas de Jong flied out on foul territory by rightfielder Lennart Koster. Next, Vince Rooi tripled to make it 3-0.

In the second inning, Rashid Gerard (walk) was on first base with one out when Amsterdam hit six basehits in a row to take a commanding lead. First, Wesley Connor singled, then Roelie Henrique followed with an RBI-double. A wild pitch led to the next run, as did an RBI-single by Sidney de Jong. This brought in new pitcher Kyle Ward, but he gave up back-to-back doubles to Percy Isenia and Bas de Jong, followed by an RBI-single by Vince Rooi, that made it 9-0.

Another big rally followed in the fourth inning when five runs were scored. With the bases loaded, a walk for Rashid Gerard led to a run, then rookie Koen Nooij doubled in two more runs. Then, a similar situation occured as in the first inning when an outfielder caught a ball in foul territory, leading to a run, this time leftfielder Adrian Anthony on a hit by Wesley Connor, resulting in sacrifice fly. A basesloaded grounder by Percy Isenia then made it 14-0.

HCAW scored its first run in the fifth inning when, with two outs, Randy Daal doubled and scored on a single by Bart Sabel, who, by the way, threw the sixth inning for HCAW after having caught the first five innings. HCAW's second run (again with two outs) was scored in the seventh off Al Morales Gomes, who had taken over from starter Jos de Jong. Again it was Randy Daal who scored after reaching base on a single, then scored on a triple by his brother Rodney Daal.

Pioniers opened the score in the second inning off starter Jurjen van Zijl. With one out, Norbert Lokhorst and Linoy Croes hit back-to-back doubles to make it 1-0 in favor of the home team.

UVV was silenced by Eddie Aucoin, who gave up only three hits in his first six innings. In the second inning, he was supported with a double play. In the fourth, Jeff Delfina led off with a single, but was left on second base. In the fifth, Glenn Romney singled with one out, but also stranded on second base.

The seventh inning was the lone for UVV when it got two runners on base. With one out, Fausto Álvarez Rizo (who was 2-for-3) and Giovanni Samboe both singled, but then two outs followed. In the eighth, Pioniers turned its second double play.

Leading only 1-0, Pioniers added two runs in the seventh inning. With one out, Zerzinho Croes reached second base on a throwing error, then Jefferson Muzo singled. This marked the end for Van Zijl, who was replaced by Sedley Karel. The latter then accounted for the two runs by himself. While facing his first batter Jason Orman with runners on first and third base, Karel was charged with a balk that enabled Croes to score. Moments later, Orman singled to again put runners on first and third base. Next, Mark Duursma flied out. But then Muzo also was awarded home when Karel was charged with another balk that made it a 3-0 score. Hereafter, Karel was replaced by Derek Tarapacki, who saw Nik Gumeson reach base on an error, but then retired the next four batters he faced. But the damage had been done.
