Top-3 extends winning streak
HAARLEM / AMSTERDAM / DORDRECHT / THE HAGUE (Neth.) - On Saturday, the top-3 added another victory to their winning streaks to take more distance from the bottom clubs.

Behind the first start of Leon Boyd, Corendon Kinheim won 8-4 vs. Mr. Cocker HCAW and has now a winning streak of nine games. That could have been ten, but one victory of Kinheim was dropped from the standings, as a result of an allocated protest. On April 20, Kinheim won 7-4 against L&D Amsterdam Pirates, but the Amsterdam-squad played under protest from the top of the sixth inning on. In that at bat, Kinheim had the bases loaded with one out and the score tied at 2-2. A single by Björn Henrichs then hit a baserunner after having past an and via an infielder. Shortly hereafter, one of the umpires gave the sign to halt the game, despite the fact that the ball was still live, meaning play couldn't have been stopped in this situation. Pirates filed a protest against this situation and that as allocated last week. That means that the game will be replayed from the top of the sixth inning with a 2-2 score, one out, the bases loaded for Kinheim and an 0-1 count on the batter. Rule 5.10 h states that 'no umpire can call 'stop' during a game situation, unless there is an accident/injury to a player or umpire (5.10 c.1) which makes it impossible to continue playing'. The remainder of the game is scheduled to be played on Sunday, July 14 preceeding the regularly scheduled game between Amsterdam and Kinheim on that day.

L&D Amsterdam Pirates won 5-4 vs. UVV on Saturday to win its eighth consecutive game, while UVV now has lost five in a row. Amsterdam led comfortably with a 4-0 score behind strong pitching of Kevin Heijstek. But in the eighth inning, reliever Kyle Ward gave up four runs, three on a homerun by Ferd van Stekelenburg, which tied the score. In the home of the ninth inning, Amsterdam went on to win the game on a walk-off single by Björn Hato.

Vaessen Pioniers won 12-4 vs. Mampaey The Hawks, which now has lost its last eight games. Dè Flanegin didn't play today for Pioniers, meaning he probably will play his record-setting 692nd big league-game for one club on Sunday, when Pioniers plays at home.

DOOR Neptunus shutout ADO Lakers 13-0 to win its tenth game in a row. For ADO Lakers, this was its 12th loss in a row.

Corendon Kinheim vs. Mr. Cocker HCAW
At Haarlem, Leon Boyd made his first start in a Kinheim-uniform and threw 67 pitches in his second outing in Dutch competition since June 12, 2011. On that day, he threw in his lone game for DOOR Neptunus and faced Kinheim in a 5-2 loss. Boyd then threw 1 2/3 inning in relief and gave up four hits and two runs to become the losing pitcher. A year earlier, in 2010, he was a the pitching ace for Neptunus, went 9-0 with an 0.39 ERA and was named Best Pitcher. Last week, on May 5, Boyd made his comeback in the Dutch league and then threw two innings in relief for Kinheim vs. UVV.

Today, Boyd was the winning pitcher in the 8-4 win of Corendon Kinheim vs. Mr. Cocker HCAW. Boyd was supported with three runs in the first at bat, which gave Kinheim enough margin later in the game. René Cremer led off the first inning with the first big league-homerun in his career, then Dirk van 't Klooster and Ramiro Balentina followed with singles. After the two runners advanced on a passed ball, the bases got loaded when Bryan Engelhardt walked. The latter was then forced out on a grounder by Jeffrey Arends, but that also produced a run. A grounder by Quintin de Cuba made it 3-0 off of Kaj Timmermans, who initially was scheduled to start Sunday's game.

HCAW narrowed the deficit to 3-2 by scoring runs in the fourth and sixth inning. In the fourth, Linoy Croes led off with a single and went on to score on a sac-fly by Arjan Elshof. In the sixth, Jesus Latte led off with a walk and scored on a grounder by Dylan de Mello. The run in the sixth was scored off Steven van Groningen, who until now was the Game 2 starter in the Kinheim-rotation. But now that Boyd has arrived and moved into the starting rotation, Van Groningen transfered to the bullpen.

The three runs in the first inning proved to be enough for Kinheim, which took more distance with a 4-run rally in the sixth at bat. With one out, Mervin Gario singled, but he was forced out on a grounder by Roy Seltenrijch. Moments later, the latter scored when a throwing error followed a bunt-single by Remco Draijer, who ended up on third base himself. The bases then got loaded when René Cremer was hit by a pitch and (after a pitching change) Dirk van 't Klooster walked. A following double by Ramiro Balentina cleared the bases and lifted the lead to 7-2.

Kinheim added a run in the seventh on a groundout by Roy Seltenrijch. HCAW then was able to score two more runs in the eighth at bat. The Bussum-team got the bases loaded when Jasper Keijzer walked, Jesus Latte singled and Kevin Nieveld (with one out) also walked. A grounder by Dylan de Mello then brought in a run. Next, pinch-hitter Jorin van Amstel struckout, but reached first base on a wild pitch, which enabled Latte to score and make it 8-4.

L&D Amsterdam Pirates vs. UVV
At Amsterdam, L&D Amsterdam Pirates appeared to have a comfortable 4-0 lead behind the strong pitching of Kevin Heijstek against UVV, which then came alongside in the eighth at bat off a reliever. Amsterdam recovered and won 5-4 with a walk-off single in the ninth inning.

Kevin Heijstek threw seven solid innings for Amsterdam and only ran into some problems in the fifth inning, but then escaped a basesloaded, no outs, situation unharmed. The righthander struckout 10 batters and gave up only four basehits in seven innings. After hitting lead-off batter Norbert Jongerius with a pitch in the first inning, Heijstek retired the next 12 batters in a row. In the fifth inning, Giovanni Samboe led off with a hit, that was back-handed by second baseman Jesse Aussems, but just out of reach, making it a single. Next, Daan Cornelissen reached on a bunt-single and Ricky Daal loaded the bases with another single. But hereafter, Jirka Bliek grounded into an 1-2-3 double play and the threat ended when Brennan Nijhof flied out. Heijstek then retired the side again in the sixth, gave up an one-out single to Samboe in the seventh and was relieved in the eighth inning with a 4-0 lead.

Ian Delemarre got the start for UVV against his former teammates, as he pitched for Pirates last season. He gave up three runs on four hits in the first at bat, then settled down and gave up only two more hits and one run in the next four innings. In the first at bat, lead-off hitter Michael Duursma drove the ball into rightfield. There, rightfielder Norbert Jongerius clearly misjudged the ball and ran out of room, making it a double for Duursma, who then advanced on a grounder by Jesse Aussems. Moments later, Duursma scored the first run when Jongerius made another misjudgement of a ball hit by Percy Isenia. Therefore, the ball again was out of reach and so Isenia also ended up with a double. Isenia then was awarded third base on a balk and scored when Bas de Jong singled through the middle. Kenny Berkenbosch followed with another single and a wild pitch moved the runners. A grounder by Kevin Weijgertse then enabled De Jong to score, but held Berkenbosch at second base. Hereafter, Jongerius made a nice catch on a line drive by next batter Rashid Gerard, but that was erased, as Home Plate Umpire Henri van Heijningen had called another balk on Delemarre. With that, Berkenbosch was awarded third base and Gerard got back to bat, but then grounded out to end the inning.

Pirates added its fourth run in the third inning. Jesse Aussems led off with a single and stole second base. A third balk was then called on Delemarre, which brought Aussems to third base and he then scored on a 2-out single by Berkenbosch, who was 3-for-4.

With a 4-0 lead, lefthander Kyle Ward took over for Heijstek in the eighth inning, but ran into problems. Jirka Bliek led off with a double and next batter Brennan Nijhof was hit by a pitch. Next, Norbert Jongerius hit a possible double play-grounder to second baseman Jesse Aussems, but he threw the ball over the head of short stop Michael Duursma into leftfield, enabling Bliek to score. After an infield-fly accounted for the first out, Ferd van Stekelenburg drove the ball into rightfield for a 3-run homerun to tie the score. Jurrian Koks took over for Ward and ended the inning.

In the ninth inning, Koks walked Bliek with two outs, but ended the at bat with a strikout. In the home of the ninth, Pirates decided the game. Roelie Henrique, who had entered the game defensively the inning before, led off with a walk. Hereafter, veteran closer Duko Jansen took over from Dennis Burgersdijk, who had relieved Delemarre in the sixth inning and had given up only one basehit in the previous three innings. Henrique advanced on a sacrifice bunt by Rashid Gerard, then pinch-hitter Bas Nooij was walked intentionally to set up a force play. But next hitter Björn Hato then lined the ball to the rightfield-line for a walk-off single that scored Henrique from second base with the winning run.

Mampaey The Hawks vs. Vaessen Pioniers
At Dordrecht, Vaessen Pioniers encountered no problems in its second game against Mampaey The Hawks and won 12-4 on 17 basehits, including four by Vince Rooi.

In the first inning, Zerzinho Croes and Phil Ortez led off with singles, then moved on a wild pitch. With one out, another wild pitch from starter Kevin Noordzij led to the first run. Vince Rooi then followed with a 2-run single to give Pioniers a quick 3-0 lead.

The next run was added in the third inning when Rooi singled with one out and scored on a 2-out single by Kevin Dirksen, but Pioniers also left the bases loaded.

Trailing 4-0, The Hawks got two runs back in the fourth inning off of Kevin Miner. Erwin Bonis led off with a double and Frans van den Heuvel followed with a single. A double by Bob de Bruijn and sac-fly by Thomas Soederhuijsen then produced the runs, but Miner followed with two strikeouts to end the inning.

Pioniers regained a 4-run margin in the fifth inning. Vince Rooi led off with a triple, which led to a pitching change, then scored when an error was made on a grounder by Kevin Dirksen. The latter then scored moments later on a single by Michael Pluijmers. Another run was added in the sixth inning on a basesloaded walk for Kevin Dirksen, who had four runs batted in, but Pioniers again left the bases loaded in this frame.

A 4-run rally in the eighth inning lifted the lead to 11-2. A sac-fly by Mark Duursma, double by Kevin Dirksen and pinch-hit, 2-run single by Djewi Appelman accounted for the runs. The Hawks then managed to score twice again in the home of the eighth on an outfield-error and a double by Bob de Bruijn. Pioniers then made it a 12-4 score by adding a run in the ninth inning on a ground-rule double by Skip Visser, but left the bases loaded for the third time.

Dè Flanegin didn't play today for Pioniers, meaning he almost surely will play his record-setting 692nd game on Sunday at home.

ADO Lakers vs. DOOR Neptunus
At The Hague, DOOR Neptunus shutout ADO Lakers 13-0 on 13 basehits. Orlando Yntema went the distance in the 7-inning game and gave up only two basehits.

Neptunus opened the score with two runs in the first inning. Ricky Voorn walked lead-off hitter Gyenuar Lopez, who was then awarded second base on a balk. The bases got loaded when Gianison Boekhoudt and Raily Legito also walked. A double by Dwayne Kemp then gave Neptunus a 2-0 lead.

Neptunus then kept on adding runs in the next innings, except the fifth. In the second inning, Shaldimar Daantji tripled with one out and scored on a wild pitch. In the third at bat, Dwayne Kemp walked with one out, advanced on a grounder, stole third base and scored on a double by Benjamin Dille.

Two runs were scored in the fourth inning. Daniel Fernandes, who made his big league-debut today, led off with a triple and scored when Shaldimar Daantji followed with a single. The latter then stole second base and scored on a double by Gianison Boekhoudt to make it 6-0.

A 5-run rally in the sixth inning gave Neptunus the needed 10-run difference to end the game through the mercy-rule. Daantji led off with a walk and scored when Lopez followed with a triple, who then scored on a following single by Boekhoudt. First baseman Odion Gouverneur then took over the pitching for ADO Lakers and was greeted with a single by Raily Legito. A double play then followed, but also enabled Boekhoudt to score. Next, the bases got loaded when Rafaël Jozefa was hit by a pitch and Benjamin Dille and Adrian Anthony both walked. A double by Fernandes then accounted for two more runs and made it 11-0.

The final two runs were added in the seventh inning on a 2-run single by Benjamin Dille.

The Hawks reached third base only once off of Yntema, who retired 13 of the last 14 batters he faced. It was Yntema's first complete game of the season, which came also exactly a year after his last complete game. On May 10, 2012, Yntema threw a complete game in a 8-0 win against Mr. Cocker HCAW when he was pitching for UVV in a game that ended after 7 1/2 innings due to rain.
