After holding Corendon Kinheim to three hits in a 3-0 shutout on May 3, Heijstek today gave up only two hits to Neptunus.

Heijstek retired the first 15 batters in a row, meaning he was pitching a Perfect Game after five innings! That was broken in the top of the sixth inning when Urving Kemp led off with a single. Kemp advanced to second base on a sacrifice bunt by Daniel Fernandes, but then the next two batters were retired again.

After retiring the side in the seventh, Heijstek gave up a lead-off single to Gyenuar Lopez in the eighth at bat. He also advanced on a sac-bunt, this time by Adrian Anthony. Lopez then became the lone Neptunus-player to reach third base after moving on a grounder by Urving Kemp, but then stranded.

Neptunus-starter Orlando Yntema gave up two hits and one run in the third at bat. With one out, Roelie Henrique tripled, then scored when Michael Duursma followed with a single. Two flyouts then ended the inning.

After being retired in order in the fourth inning, Pirates got its next scoring opportunity in the fifth at bat. Lead-off hitter Bas Nooij reached on an error and moved on a sacrifice bunt by Bj÷rn Hato, then advanced to third base on a passed ball. A squeeze then wasn't successful. Henrique bunted the ball back to Yntema, who was able to eliminate Nooij at the plate. Moments later, Henrique stole second base and Duursma walked, but the two were left behind.

Yntema retired the side again in the sixth, then gave up a lead-off single to Rashid Gerard in the seventh, but then three flyouts followed.

Amsterdam added its second run in the eighth inning off of new pitcher Will Dismukes. With one out, the American gave up a single to Remco Draijer, who who then advanced on a wild pitch and a passed ball. After Kenny Berkenbosch had walked, Draijer scored on a following double by Bas de Jong to make it 2-0. Berkenbosch advanced to third on a double and also tried to score, but was thrown out at the plate on a throw from centerfielder Shaldimar Daantji.

Heijstek then retired the side again in the ninth with the final out being registered on his 96th pitch in the game to lift his record to 5-0.

Kinheim-starter Nick Veltkamp (who went on to win his fifth game) faced a quick 1-0 deficit in the first inning. The lefthander gave up a lead-off double to Zerzinho Croes, then committed a fielding error on a grounder by next batter Dirk van 't Klooster and loaded the bases by walking Danny Rombley. But despite having the bases loaded with no outs, Veltkamp gave up only one run and was supported by his defense as well as a baserunner when a sacrifice fly turned into a double play, involving former players of both teams. Vince Rooi flied out to centerfielder (and former Pionier) Jefferson Muzo, which enabled Croes to score and gave Rooi a sacrifice fly. Muzo then threw the ball back to the infield, where first baseman Jeffrey Arends received it and threw it to third baseman (and former Pionier) Mervin Gario, who tagged out baserunner (and former Kinheim-player) Dirk van 't Klooster, who had left his base on the flyout. After Rombley stole second base moments later, Veltkamp ended the at bat with a strikeout.

Pionier-starter Ricardo Hernandez Sanchez also was assisted with a double play in his first inning. He gave up a lead-off single to RenÚ Cremer, then caught the bunt by next batter Bj÷rn Henrichs and was able to double up Cremer at first base. A single by Quintin De Cuba and walk for Bryan Engelhardt followed, but then the Venezuelan also ended his first inning with a strikeout, leaving two runners.

In the home of the third inning, Kinheim rallied for three runs. RenÚ Cremer led off with a triple, then scored when Quintin De Cuba doubled with one out. A homerun by Bryan Engelhardt (his fourth of the season) then made it 3-1 in favor of the home team.

Pioniers answered with three runs of its own in the top of the fourth inning. Vince Rooi led off with a single, then Mark Duursma doubled with one out. A single by DŔ Flanegin and a following error in leftfield then tied the score. Flanegin then stole third base and scored the go-ahead run on a sacrifice fly by Kevin Dirksen.

The lead was shortlived, as Kinheim erased its second deficit by scoring twice in the home of the fifth. Mervin Gario led off with a homerun to make it a 4-4 score, then Sven van de Sanden followed with a double. He moved on a sac-bunt by Jefferson Muzo and scored on a single by RenÚ Cremer. The latter was awarded second base on a balk and advanced on a flyout, but was left behind. However, Kinheim had taken a 5-4 lead and this time held onto the lead for the remainder of the game.

After Pioniers left two runners in the sixth inning and Kinheim turned a double play in the seventh, the Haarlem-squad added an insurance run in the home of the seventh. With one out, Bj÷rn Henrichs singled off of Dennis Buring, who was then relieved by Scott Ronnenbergh. The lefthander loaded the bases by walking Quintin de Cuba and Bryan Engelhardt. That brought in new pitcher Sedley Karel, who saw Jeffrey Arends ground into a force out, but Henrichs scored to make it 6-4.

In the eighth inning, Pioniers got one run back when Vince Rooi homered with one out off of reliever Pim Walsma. But the Hoofddorp-team was unable to turn the game its way. They got an oppportunity in the ninth off of closer Arshwin Asjes when DŔ Flanegin led off with a double. But his pinch-runner Taylor Clemensia was picked off by the catcher with one out. After a walk for pinch-hitter Djewi Appelman, the game ended with a groundout and with that Pioniers moved out of first place again.

ADO Lakers won the first game of the series last Thursday with an 1-0 score. The team from The Hague opened the score today in the first inning and held onto to the lead for the remainder of the game.

In the first inning, Stephen Henson doubled with one out off of Ivan Granados, then moved on a single by Christian Diaz. With two outs, Granados made a fielding error on a bunt by Jason Jakobus, which enabled Henson to score the opening run.

After HCAW left two runners in the home of the first inning, ADO Lakers added a run in the second at bat. With one out, Joshua Zara singled and Brian Raap doubled. A wild pitch by Granados then led to the second run.

HCAW got one run back in the second inning off of Dennis Burgersdijk. With one out, Dillon True walked and stole second, then scored on a 2-out single by Peter van Doesburg.

Both teams left a runner in the third inning and then ADO Lakers added a run in the fourth. Irving Redan led off with a walk, moved on a grounder and then advanced when Brian Raap reached on an error. Redan then scored on a grounder by Odion Gouverneur, which turned into a double play, as Raap was eliminated after having moved to second base to end the inning.

HCAW kept on reaching the bases, but was unable to move the runners around. In the first six innings, the Bussum-team left nine runners behind, including seven in scoring position.

In the seventh inning, ADO Lakers increased the lead to 4-1. Roel Bellinga took over the pitching for Granados, but with one out, he walked Brian Raap, who then stole second base. Raap was unable to advance when Odion Gouverneur singled into centerfield, but then scored on a following single by Stephen Henson. An outfield-error resulted in runners on second and third base, then a force play was set up by walking Christian Diaz intentionally. Hereafter, Tom de Blok took over the pitching and saw pinch-hitter Glenn Romney hit into a double play to end the inning.

HCAW then narrowed the deficit to 4-2 by scoring a run in the home of the eighth when pinch-hitter Kevin Nieveld doubled and scored on a single by Levine GabriŰls. But HCAW again left two runners behind.

In the top of the ninth inning, ADO Lakers brought the score out of reach with an 8-run rally. De Blok (who was supported with another double play in the 8th) walked pinch-hitter Jesper van Aken, gave up a double to Stephen Henson and issued an intentional walk to Christian Diaz. He was then relieved by Gijs van Els, who was greeted with a 2-run single by Glenn Romney, a single by Jason Jakobus that re-loaded the bases and another RBI-single to Kelvi Martinez. That led to another pitching change, as Daley Paalvast took over with the bases still loaded. Paalvast walked Kelvin Knape to bring in another run. More runs were then added on a force play-grounder by Joshua Zara, and singles by Brian Raap and Jesper van Aken (2-run), which lifted the lead to 12-2.
