Despite hitting three homeruns, league-leader L&D Amsterdam Pirates suffered a big 12-7 loss at UVV, which collected 15 basehits, including three by Glenn Romney and Shurty Tremus (the latter had five RBI's). With the victory, UVV ended its 8-game losing streak.

UVV struck early, scoring four runs in both the first and second inning to take a comfortable 8-0 lead after two at bats. Trailing 10-2, Amsterdam started to come back from the sixth inning on, scoring five runs, while UVV was held to only two runs in that span, but in the end, it was the home team that left the field as the winners.

In the first inning, UVV scored four runs with two outs off Amsterdam-starter Jos de Jong. Jirka Bliek (fielder's choice) was on base when Glenn Romney doubled, then it was decided to walk Fausto Álvarez Rizo intentionally with two outs to load the bases and create a force play. That failed, as next batter Rutger Veugelers walked to bring in a run, then Shurty Tremus followed with a 3-run double that made it 4-0.

In the next inning, UVV added four more runs off De Jong, again with two outs. After a strikeout and flyout, De Jong walked Bliek, then gave up a single to Romney. The two runners then scored when Danny Rombley followed with a double. An error on a grounder by Álvarez resulted in the next run and the Cuban later scored himself on a single by Tremus. This marked the end for De Jong, who was relieved by Frank van Heijst, who ended the at bat with a flyout.

After being silenced in the first three innings by UVV-starter Orlando Yntema, Amsterdam scored twice in the fourth. First, Sidney de Jong walked, then Percy Isenia followed with his sixth homerun of the season. But UVV got both runs back in the home of the fourth, when it scored two unearned runs. With one out, Veugelers singled, then an error was made on a force play-grounder by Tremus. The two then scored on a single by Giovanni Samboe, that made it 10-2.

In the fifth, Tremus added another RBI-single and collected his fifth RBI, as it enabled Romney to score (with two outs) and make it 11-2.

In the top of the sixth, Amsterdam narrowed the deficit to 11-5. With one out, Sidney de Jong homered, then Percy Isenia reached on an error and Bas de Jong singled. Bas Nooij then followed with a 2-run double. Hereafter, Yntema was relieved by Jim Ploeger, who made his first appearance of the season.

UVV added another 2-out run in the seventh inning off new pitcher Al Morales Gomes, when Bliek reached on an error and scored on a 2-out single by Veugelers.

In the eighth, Amsterdam scored two more runs. With one out, Ploeger hit Nooij with a pitch, then gave up a 2-run homerun to Wesley Connor, who returned to the line-up. The centerfielder had been sidelined due to a problem with a stitch in his mouth. But hereafter, Amsterdam didn't reach base anymore, as did UVV.

Vaessen Pioniers vs. DOOR Neptunus
At Hoofddorp, DOOR Neptunus was beaten 2-1 by Vaessen Pioniers, thanks to a 2-out, walk-off triple by Randy Reiph in the ninth inning. With the loss, Neptunus' 11-game winning streak ended.

Pioniers-starter Eddie Aucoin threw a great game and went the distance. The righthander took a Perfect Game into the sixth inning and finally settled for a 5-hitter, while striking out seven batters to raise his record to 5-1.

Pioniers left two runners in the second inning, but then took an 1-0 lead in the third inning off starter Kevin Heijstek. Jefferson Muzo led off with a single, then moved to third when Michael Duursma also singled. He then scored when next batter Mark Duursma grounded into a double play. Hereafter, Nik Gumeson and Dè Flanegin also singled, but then the inning ended when Norbert Lokhorst grounded out.

The run looked to the lone one in this game for a long time, until Neptunus came alongside in the eighth bat bat.

Eddie Aucoin retired the first 17 batters he faced, but then both his Perfect Game and No-Hitter ended when Shaldimar Daantji singled through the middle with two outs in the sixth. But he would strand on second base.

After Aucoin had retired the side in the seventh, Neptunus tied the score in the next at bat when the American gave up four hits. With one out, Eldrion Regina doubled and advanced on a single by Mourik Huijser, then scored on a 2-out single by Eugène Kingsale. Next, Benjamin Dille also singled and Huijser was waved home trying to score, but he was thrown out at the plate by centerfielder Jefferson Muzo.

After giving up the run in the third, Kevin Heijstek gave up only one basehit in the next four innings, then was relieved by Berry van Driel, who retired the side in the eighth, including two strikeouts. In the top of the ninth, Aucoin retired the side for the seventh time, ending with two strikeouts, then became the winning pitcher moments later. Arshwin Asjes, who threw for Pioniers last season, took over the pitching for Neptunus in the ninth and started with two strikeouts. But he then gave up a single to Mark-Jan Moorman. Hereafter, Randy Reiph followed with a walk-off triple that gave Pioniers a 2-1 win. Reiph was added to the roster earlier this season and played in the big league in the past for PSV and ADO.
