Mr. Cocker HCAW vs. Vaessen Pioniers
At Bussum, Mr. Cocker HCAW won 2-1 vs. Vaessen Pioniers in a game that was interrupted for more than an hour because of a bright sunset.
The delay happened in the top of the fourth inning with HCAW leading 1-0.
After the game resumed, HCAW went on to add a run, then Pioniers scored a run in the top of the seventh inning.
This was also the last at bat, as the game then was halted due to the 10:30 PM curfew-rule.
And so, this was a game that was troubled by the (sunny) weather conditions as well as the rules.
Initially, this was to be a day-game, but it was moved to the evening to become part of the annual international youth tournament HCAW organizes in the Whitsunday-weekend, as is done every year.
But when a game is played in the evening, there is the 10:30 PM curfew-rule.
This states that no new inning may start after that time has been reached.
And when playing an evening game at the site of HCAW in Bussum on a sunny day, a sun-delay also can become a possible factor in the game.
And both the weather and the rule influenced the game.
However, this doesn't takes anything away from HCAW, which played a good game and simply outscored Pioniers.
A big part was played by pitcher Maickel Rietel, who went the distance for HCAW and gave up only three basehits to the powerful offense of Pioniers.
HCAW also collected only three hits, two of which contributed to the first run.
Two errors then accounted for the second HCAW-run.
Rietel had a strong start, as he retired the first nine batters he faced, including two strikeouts.
For Pioniers, Reggie Bomberg made his first start of the season.
He also retired the first six batters of the game, but he then gave up a run in the third inning.
In the third, Dillon True led off with a walk and advanced on a sacrifice bunt by Levine Gabriëls and a single by Jim Froberg.
True then scored then first run when Linoy Croes also singled.
Bomberg retired the next two batters and so, HCAW left two runners behind, but had opened the score.
In the top of the fourth inning, Zerzinho Croes led off with a single and moved on a grounder by Dirk van 't Klooster.
Hereafter, the game was interrupted as the setting sun had become to bright.
At the site in Bussum, the sun sets in left-centerfield, meaning a batter, the catcher and the home plate umpire are bothered by it.
Mostly, a game resumes again within 30 minutes, but tonight the delay lasted one hour and 15 minutes, which is the longest of this season.
It was the third sun-delay of the season in Bussum.
On May 9, the game against Corendon Kinheim was delayed for 14 minutes in the top of the third inning.
On May 22, the game against ADO Lakers was stopped between the top and bottom of the sixth inning and then was delayed for 28 minutes.
And so, everyone had to wait for the sun to set and then start warming up again for the remainder of the game.
The game resumed after 75 minutes at 9:38 PM, meaning there was less than an hour left to complete the game, as 10:30 PM is the curfew-deadline.
When the game resumed, Rietel returned to the mound and then a groundout and flyout ended the top of the fourth inning.
In the bottom of the fourth inning, HCAW added a run.
Kevin Weijgertse led off with a walk and moved on a sacrifice bunt by Jorin van Amstel.
He then advanced to third base when Jelle Blaauw reached on an error.
Next, Weijgertse scored when Bomberg made an errant pick-off to first base.
That led to a pitching change and Sedley Karel took over.
He struckout Levine Gabriëls to end the inning, but HCAW now had doubled its lead.
Rietel retired the side again in the fifth inning and gave up an one-out single to Max Draijer in the sixth.
But the righthander was then supported with a double play and went on to throw the first complete game in big league career.
With the 10:30 curfew in sight, the seventh inning began and Pioniers started to do something back.
Dirk van 't Klooster led off with a double and moved on a grounder by Danny Rombley, then scored on a sacrifice fly by Vince Rooi.
Next, Mark-Jan Moorman reached when his fly was missed in the outfield and Kevin Dirksen was hit by a pitch.
But the inning then ended when a force out was made on a grounder by Dè Flanegin.
When the third out was made, it was past 10:30 PM and so, Pioniers started packing up their things, as the home team was leading and thus had won the game.
A discussion of some five minutes then followed and the game resumed after all, as it was stated the inning had to be completed.
Which is strange, as the home team never bats in the bottom half of an inning when it is leading and the game has become official.
But now, Pioniers had to go back into the field.
Bayron Cornelisse became the new pitcher for the Hoofddorp-squad and he struckout all three batters he faced.
And then, the game did end after all.
