Neptunus vs. Sparta-Feyenoord rains out
ROTTERDAM (Neth.) -
The game between DOOR Neptunus and Sparta-Feyenoord on Tuesday-evening was stopped by rain in the bottom of the second inning with Neptunus leading 9-0.
The game was re-scheduled for Wednesday-evening.
The match-up between the two teams is the re-scheduled game that was initially played on April 5 at Neptunus.
But a few days later that game was declared void, as Adonis Kemp had coached at first base while being suspended for two games.
The next day, Neptunus informed the Dutch Association that Kemp had coached and that it would keep him aside for the next two games.
But as Kemp was ineligible to coach in the game that was already played, that match-up (which was won by Neptunus 20-0) was declared void.
Furthermore, Neptunus got two points subtracted and it was decided that the game would be replayed at the site of opponent Sparta-Feyenoord.
Neptunus appealed the decision, but the club didn't got an answer until late last Sunday-evening that it was rejected.
And so, the teams were to play tonight.
It appeared that Neptunus was off to another big score, just as in the original game.
In the first at bat, Neptunus rallied for nine runs off starter Quinn Tramm, while Neptunus-starter Tim Roodenburg retired all six batters he faced.
In the bottom of the second inning, with one out and a runner at first base, the game was stopped by rain.
Half an hour later, the umpiring crew decided that resuming the game was no option, as the field had become unplayable.
The game will now be played on Wednesday, but instead of doing it on the site of Sparta-Feyenoord, it will be played at the site of Neptunus.
RHP Tim Roodenburg will start again for Neptunus, while a starter for Sparta-Feyenoord has not yet been announced.
