Big wins for Kinheim & UVV
Nederlands
ROTTERDAM / HAARLEM / AMSTERDAM / THE HAGUE (Neth.) - on Thursday-evening, DOOR Neptunus had its hand full with winless Mr. Cocker HCAW. The Bussum-team turned a 3-0 deficit into a 4-3 lead, only to see Neptunus come alongside and win 5-4 in the final at bat.

Corendon Kinheim and UVV registered big victories. Kinheim rallied for 13 runs in one inning en route to a 19-0 shutout vs. Mampaey The Hawks, while UVV won 13-2 at ADO Lakers.

L&D Amsterdam Pirates trailed briefly 1-0, but won 3-1 against Vaessen Pioniers to take sole possession of the fourth place.



DOOR Neptunus vs. Mr. Cocker HCAW
At Rotterdam, Neptunus led 3-0 against HCAW, which then rallied for four runs in the seventh. But Neptunus came alongside and went on to win 5-4.

In its first six games, HCAW was held winless, but tonight the team from Bussum had its biggest chance so far to win its first game of the season.

Initially, Neptunus appeared to have no problems tonight. Gianison Boekhoudt led off with a walk, moved to third base on an one-out single by Raily Legito and scored on a sac-fly by Dwayne Kemp. But HCAW-starter Sander Helmendach recovered, retired the side in the second inning and prevented Neptunus from taking a big lead.

In the second inning, the righthander gave up the second run. Shaldimar Daantji led off with an infield-hit, moved on an errant pick-off and wild pitch and scored on sac-fly by Benjamin Dille. Helmendach also walked Gianison Boekhoudt and Raily Legito, but they were left behind.

In the third inning, Neptunus left another runner, but added a run in the fifth at bat. With one out, Benjamin Dille singled and scored on a double by Raily Legito, who was left behind for the third time moments later. In the inning, Gijs van Els took over from Helmendach, who then retired the side in the sixth inning.

Neptunus-starter Diegomar Markwell didn't encounter much trouble initially. HCAW reached base only four times in the first six innings, but only one runner was able to reach third base. That was lead-off hitter Dylan de Mello, who walked in the first inning, was awarded second base on a balk and moved on a wild pitch. He was then unable to advance on an infield-hit by JuriŽn Overman, then both runners were left behind. Markwell then retired eight batters in a row and two errors led to runners in the fourth and sixth inning, but also were left behind.

HCAW then turned the game around in the seventh inning with a 4-run rally. The bases got loaded when Linoy Croes and Jesus Latte singled and Sergino Martis reached when no outs were made on his sac-bunt. Pinch-hitter Arjan Elshof then hit the ball back to Markwell, who made a fielding error, enabling Croes to score and left the bases loaded. Next, Jasper Keijzer singled to make it 3-2. With the bases still loaded, an 1-2-3 double play on a comeback-grounder by Dylan de Mello probably was the biggest play for Neptunus of the evening. Jorin van Amstel followed with a 2-run triple that gave HCAW a 4-3 lead, but the double play prevented an additional run. After giving up the triple, Markwell was relieved by rookie Diornick Sanchez, who struckout JuriŽn Overman in another crucial play for the home team. Sanchez then retired the side in the eighth.

In the home of the seventh, now trailing 4-3, Neptunus was retired in order by new pitcher Sedley Karel, but came alongside in the eighth inning. Raily Legito then walked to reach base for the fourth time and moved to third base on an one-out single by RafaŽl Jozefa. Moments later, the veteran player scored the tying run on a single by Rudy Van Heydoorn. Karel was then relieved by Leon Elshof, who retired the next two batters, meaning Neptunus stranded two runners.

As the 10:30 PM curfew-time approached, it became clear that the ninth inning was to be the last complete at bat in this game. HCAW came close to re-taking the lead in the ninth at bat off of new pitcher Jorian van Acker. Sergino Martis led off with a single and Arjan Elshof walked. A sac-bunt by Jasper Keijzer then failed, as Martis was forced out. The two runners moved on a wild pitch and were left on second and third base, as Dylan de Mello lined out and Jorin van Amstel struckout.

In the home of the ninth inning, Neptunus prevented a tie score. Shaldimar Daantji led off with a single and advanced on a sac-bunt by Gianison Boekhoudt. With first base open, it was decided to pitch to Benjamin Dille, who then followed with a single into rightfield. There, an error followed, enabling Daantji to score the winning run.

Corendon Kinheim vs. Mampaey The Hawks
At Haarlem, Kinheim shutout The Hawks 19-0, thanks to a big 13-run rally in the fourth inning.

Kinheim led only 3-0 after three innings, but then brought the game out of reach for The Hawks by staging one of the most productive innings in history, scoring 13 runs on nine basehits.

In the first inning, Kinheim opened the score when Renť Cremer led off with a triple and scored on a 2-out throwing error on a grounder by Jeffrey Arends. Two runs were added in the third inning. Remco Draijer led off with a single and scored on the second triple by Cremer, who then scored when Dirk van 't Klooster followed with a single.

A big 13-run rally then followed in the fourth inning. In the at bat, 18 batters stepped up to the plate and produced nine basehits off of three pitchers. After lead-off hitter Quintin de Cuba was retired, the next 16 (!) batters reached base safely to set a record. Eight of the nine players in the batting order hit a basehit, while all nine scored at least once, four of them scoring twice. Renť Cremer, who already had tripled in his first two at bats, walked and doubled in this at bat and batted in four more runs to bring his total to five in this game.

After De Cuba was retired, the bases were loaded by Mervin Gario (hit by pitch), Roy Seltenrijch (single) and Remco Draijer (walk) reached. A walk for Cremer and 2-run double by Dirk van 't Klooster then brought in three runs and new pitcher Henk van Heijningen. The bases were then re-loaded when Ramiro Balentina singled. A single by Bryan Engelhardt (2-run) and Jeffrey Arends (one-run) then accounted for the next runs and Quintin de Cuba followed with a 3-run homerun. The bases got loaded again when Gario singled, Seltenrijch reached on an error and Draijer walked. Cremer then followed with a baseclearing double that lifted the lead to 15-0. Rick van Dijk became the new pitcher and was greeted with an RBI-single by Van 't Klooster. A force play-grounder followed and an error led to another runner, before the inning finally ended with a flyout.

The scoring wasn't over yet, as another run was added in the fifth inning on a sac-fly by Roy Seltenrijch. The final two runs were scored in the sixth inning on a 2-run homerun by Jeffrey Arends, his first in a Kinheim-uniform.

The Hawks hit only two basehits, one off of starter David Bergman, who won his first game of the season, and one off of Arshwin Asjes, who pitched the seventh inning.
