First victory UVV
HAARLEM / BUSSUM / UTRECHT / ROTTERDAM (Neth.) - On Sunday, UVV came from behind to win its first game of the season and its first since 1988, defeating Vaessen Pioniers 7-4 and avoiding a 3-game sweep. League-leader L&D Amsterdam Pirates had its this 10-plus basehit game in a row, collecting 12 to win 10-4 vs. Mr. Cocker HCAW. Corendon Kinheim shutout ADO 9-0 and DOOR Neptunus won 11-2 vs. Sparta-Feyenoord. By winning today, Amsterdam, Kinheim and Neptunus completed a 3-game sweep.

Corendon Kinheim vs. ADO
At Haarlem, Kinheim registered 12 basehits, including three by Bryan Engelhardt, who hit his third homerun and now has homered in each of the three games played by Kinheim since it opened its season on Thursday-evening. Three Kinheim-pitchers gave up only four basehits.

Kinheim scored its first two runs in the first inning. ADO-starter Raynard Doran walked lead-off hitter Remco Draijer, who then scored on a 2-out double by Bryan Engelhardt. Hereafter, Jason Halman singled to make it 2-0.

Two more runs were added in the third at bat, again with two outs. Engelhardt then walked and Halman singled. An error in a caught stealing-situation then enabled Engelhardt to score, while Halman scored on a passed ball.

In the fourth, Roy Seltenrijch singled and scored on a grounder by Remco Draijer, then four runs were added in the fifth. The inning opened with the third homerun of the season by Engelhardt, while later in the inning Seltenrijch contributed with a 2-run double, then scored himself on a 2-out single by René Cremer, that increased the lead to 9-0.

ADO reached base only twice in the first six innings off starter Nick Veltkamp, who struckout nine batters. The lefthander gave up singles to Jaïr Roseburg and rookie Joshua Zara, who was added to the team on Friday and made his debut on Saturday. The two stranded, as Veltkamp retired the next 14 batters in a row. In the seventh, two more batters reached base, but one was forced out, while the second was left behind. Patrick Beljaards and Nick Stuifbergen threw the last two innings for Kinheim.

At Bussum, Amsterdam today had 12 basehits, including three by Wesley Connor. Besides giving up 12 basehits, three HCAW-pitchers also walked 11 batters. Starter Joey Eijpe walked six and gave up six hits and six runs in 3 2/3 inning. Next, Joran Klarenbeek walked two in 3 1/3 inning. The remaining three walks were issued by Jeroen Hubert, who threw the last two innings for HCAW. The lefthander, who turned 35 in January, was a regular in the pitching staff of HCAW in the late nineties, then pitched for Amsterdam in the early 2000s. In the last years, Hubert made one to three appearances annually on the HCAW-mound, the last being a 5 inning appearance in 2009, preceeded by an one-inning appearance in 2008. This series, HCAW had to do without Venezuelan lefthander Roger Luque, who was scheduled to arrive last Thursday, but that had to be postponed due to visa-problems.

Next, Danny Rombley singled to bring in two runs and as an outfield-error followed, another run was scored to make it 7-4 in UVV's favor.
