Top-3 expands lead
THE HAGUE / HOOFDDORP / UTRECHT / ROTTERDAM (Neth.) - The current top-3 in the Dutch big league, L&D Amsterdam Pirates, DOOR Neptunus and Corendon Kinheim expanded their lead over the rest of the teams by winning the opening games of the next series on a clouded and rainy Thursday-evening. Amsterdam won big vs. Vaessen Pioniers, 13-1, while Neptunus had a close call vs. ADO, but in the end won 9-3. Kinheim handed UVV a 6-2 loss. Mr. Cocker HCAW was the fourth winning team tonight, shutting out Sparta-Feyenoord, 8-0.

For the first time this season, all home teams lost their game. This comes one week after all home teams were the winning teams for the first time this season last Thursday.

ADO vs. DOOR Neptunus
At The Hague, DOOR Neptunus had a close call vs. ADO. The Rotterdam-squad led only 4-3 in the eighth inning when ADO got runners on second and third base with one out, then had the bases loaded with two outs. But after this scoring opportunity ended, Neptunus rallied for five runs in the ninth inning to win 9-3.

After a scoreless first inning, Neptunus scored twice in the second at bat. Dwayne Kemp led off with a walk, but then the game was intterupted briefly for the second time by rain. After the game resumed, Rien Vernooij flied out, then Australian Tom Brice hit a basehit in his first big league at bat, as he made his debut in tonight's game, playing in centerfield. Next, an error enabled Kemp to score and brough Brice to second base, who then scored when Eldrion Regina followed with a single.

In the home of the second, Neptunus-starter Diegomar Markwell gave up a lead-off homerun to Enrique Tromp, which was the first homerun hit this season by an ADO-player. Neptunus got the run back in the third. Benjamin Dille led off with a triple, then Raily Legito walked. A throwing error then followed on a force play-grounder by Jeffrey Arends, enabling Dille to score and bringing Legito to third base. ADO-starter Nick Martin then struckout Dwayne Kemp and saw Rien Vernooij groundout to short. Legito tried to score on this hit, but was thrown out himself at home, completing a double play.

After giving up the homerun in the second inning, Markwell gave up an one-out single, but then retired 11 batters in a row. With a 3-1 lead, he was then relieved by Tim Roodenburg, who started by walking the first batter he faced, Gyenuar Lopez. The latter advanced on a sac-bunt, then scored on a single by Jaïr Roseburg. But the inning then ended when Roseburg was caught stealing after a pick-off, followed by a groundout.

Neptunus, which left two runners in scoring position in the sixth inning, then added a run in the eighth off new pitcher Carlos Tabares Castro when Dwayne Kemp doubled with one out and scored on a following single by Rien Vernooij, who was then caught stealing moments later.

Trailing 4-2, ADO came close to not only tying the score, but taking the lead in the home of the eighth inning. With one out, Roodenburg gave up a double to Gyenuar Lopez, who then scored when an error was made on a grounder by Jarreau Martina. Next, Jaïr Roseburg doubled, which brought in closer Arshwin Asjes. With runners on second and third base and one out, he struckout Sidney Ensermo, then walked Enrique Tromp intentionally to load the bases. Asjes then also struckout Bas Mol to end the inning, leaving the bases loaded.

Neptunus then took more distance by scoring five runs in the ninth inning, four of which were unearned. Tabares walked Eldrion Regina, then made a throwing error himself on a sac-bunt by Mourik Huijser and followed with a wild pitch. An intentional walk for Eugène Kingsale then loaded the bases. After an infield-fly, a single by Raily Legito and walk for Jeffrey Arends led to two runs. Two runs were then added when Dwayne Kemp also singled. With two outs, Shaldimar Daantji (who had just entered the game as a defensive replacement for Tom Brice) also singled to make it 9-3.
