Top-4 completes 3-game sweep
HOOFDDORP / DORDRECHT / VLEUTEN / BUSSUM (Neth.) - The top-4 in the Dutch big league completed a 3-game sweep on Sunday. In recent years, it didn't happen that much that the best four teams at one moment in the league all completed a 3-game sweep.

DOOR Neptunus trailed against Mr. Cocker HCAW, as was the case in the previous two games, but eventually turned the game around in its favor to win 7-2. With this result, HCAW has now lost all nine games played so far and remains the lone winless team in the league. Today, its renovated site in Bussum was officially re-opened.

L&D Amsterdam Pirates also registered three come-from-behind victories against Vaessen Pioniers and today completed a sweep with a 4-2 win.

Corendon Kinheim shutout Mampaey The Hawks 7-0, while UVV won 3-1 vs. ADO Lakers.

Vaessen Pioniers vs. L&D Amsterdam Pirates
L&D Amsterdam Pirates registered its third come-from-behind victory against Vaessen Pioniers today with a 4-2 score to complete a 3-game sweep. Closer Jurrian Koks had a decision in all three games. Today, he earned a save, as he did in the opener on Thursday and on Saturday, he was the winning pitcher.

In today's game, Pioniers took an 1-0 in the first inning off of Jos de Jong. With two outs, Danny Rombley and vince Rooi singled, then a single by Mark Duursma gave Pioniers the lead, which lasted three at bats.

In the fourth inning, Pionier-starter Kevin Miner walked lead-off hitter Percy Isenia, then gave up a single to Bas de Jong. A wild pitch moved the runners, then the first was eliminated at the plate on a grounder by Bas Nooij. Next, the bases were loaded when Kevin Weijgertse walked. Hereafter, Rashid Gerard cleared the bases with a 3-run double to give Pirates a 3-1 lead.

In the bottom of the fifth inning, Pioniers threatened to come alongside. With two outs, Phil Ortez tripled and scored on a single by Danny Rombley, who then advanced moments later on a failed pick-off. The bases were then loaded when Vince Rooi walked and Mark Duursma was hit by a pitch. It marked the end for Jos de Jong, who therefore missed one out to become the winning pitcher. Kyle Ward took over and ended the at bat when Mark-Jan Moorman flied out.

Pirates then added an insurance run in the sixth inning when Bas Nooij led off with a double and went on to score on a sac-fly by Roelie Henrique.
