Pirates wins; no Play-Off decision yet
Nederlands
HOOFDDORP / ROTTERDAM / VLEUTEN / THE HAGUE (Neth.) - There was no decision yet today (Saturday, May 31) which team(s) will participate in the Play-Offs at the end of the season. L&D Amsterdam Pirates won 5-3 at Vaessen Pioniers and with that, no one secured a spot yet in the final four. DOOR Neptunus nipped Mr. Cocker HCAW 4-3, but also has to wait for things to come due to the victory by Amsterdam.

A combination of a victory for Pioniers and Neptunus would have meant that these teams would have qualified for the Play-Offs.

A decision can now come on Sunday. On that day, Neptunus doesn't need a Pioniers-victory. When Neptunus wins on Sunday, it is in the Play-Offs, whatever the result of their make-up game next Tuesday-evening. With a victory, Neptunus will reach the Play-Offs bases on its head-to-head results against Amsterdam (2-1).

When Pirates wins again on Sunday (and Neptunus wins), the decision who will be the second team to reach the Play-Offs will be decided next Tuesday with the outcome of the make-up game to be played by Pioniers. When Pioniers wins on Sunday, it will reach the Play-Offs.

When both Pioniers and Neptunus are losing on Sunday, the decision comes on Tuesday during the two remaining make-up games.

Amsterdam got a strong outing from Jos de Jong, who gave up only three hits in eight innings. Amsterdam broke a 2-2 tie with three runs in the eighth inning on a single by Bj÷rn Hato and two bases loaded hits by pitches. With the win, Amsterdam handed Pioniers its first loss at home.

Neptunus faced a 3-0 deficit in the first inning, thanks to RBI-singles by Kevin Weijgertse and Jelle Blaauw (2-run). But the home team then answered with four runs in the home half of the first at bat. A single by Dwayne Kemp and 2-run double by Gianison Boekhoudt tied the score, then an error gave Neptunus a 4-3 lead. And that were all runs that were scored today in Rotterdam.

UVV shutout Corendon Kinheim 1-0. The lone run was scored in the third inning on a double by Brennan Nijhof. Jurjen van Zijl went the distance and had a fine outing, giving up only four hits, while striking out nine.

ADO Lakers trailed 3-2 vs. Mampaey The Hawks when it rallied for seven runs in the seventh inning. The Hawks added five more runs in the remaining two at bats, but lost 10-8.

Amsterdam opened the score in the first inning off of starter Elton Koeiman. With two outs, the veteran righthander walked Bas de Jong and then gave up singles to Kenny Berkenbosch and Percy Isenia that gave the visitors an 1-0 lead. But the team also stranded two runners.

Pioniers came alongside immediately off of Jos de Jong. With one out, Dirk van 't Klooster walked and scored all the way from first base when Danny Rombley followed with a double.

In the third inning, Pirates got two runners on base with two outs when De Jong doubled and Berkenbosch singled, but they were left behind. Amsterdam then got two more runners on base in the next at bat, again with two outs. Bas Nooij and Bj÷rn Hato then both singled, but also stranded.

In the fifth inning, Amsterdam re-took the lead. With one out, De Jong singled and Berkenbosch doubled, then a grounder by Isenia made it 2-1.

After Pirates turned a double play in the fourth inning, Jos de Jong retired eight batters in a row. But he then gave the tying run in the seventh at bat. Danny Rombley led off with a walk and stole second with two outs. He then scored when Mark Duursma doubled to make it 2-2.

Amsterdam then decided the game with a 3-run rally in the eighth inning. Pirates got the bases loaded when Kenny Berkenbosch, Percy Isenia and Remco Draijer led off with singles off of Sedley Karel, who had taken over the pitching in the seventh inning. Karel then hit Rashid Gerard with a pitch to bring in Berkenbosch and make it 3-2. That ended the scoreless streak of Sedley Karel. The righthander had pitched 17 scoreless innings without giving up a run in eleven appearances (including today). With the bases loaded, Swen Huijer took over for Karel. Bas Nooij grounded the ball back to Huijer, who forced out Koen Nooij (who was the pinch-runner for Isenia) at home, but then gave up an RBI-single to Bj÷rn Hato. After a flyout, Huijer hit Michael Duursma with a pitch, which brought in another run and made it 5-2. That led to another pitching change and Scott Ronnenbergh took over. The inning then ended when Hato was called out for interference trying to advance on a grounder by Bas de Jong.

After tying the score in the seventh inning, Pioniers was retired in order by De Jong in the eighth. In the ninth inning, Kyle Ward took over for De Jong. With one out, the lefthander gave up a single to Danny Rombley, then saw an error being made on a force play-grounder by Vince Rooi. Ward then struckout Mark-Jan Moorman, but Mark Duursma followed with an RBI-single that narrowed the deficit to 5-3. With runners on first and second base, closer Jurrian Koks was brought in and he ended the game when Kevin Dirksen grounded out to earn his third save of the season.

In the top of the first inning, HCAW struck with three runs off of Orlando Yntema. The righthander walked lead-off hitter Jasper Keijzer and then gave up singles to Linoy Croes and Roy Seltenrijch (bunt) that loaded the bases. A foul-out followed, but then Kevin Weijgertse singled to bring in the first run. After an infield-fly accounted for the second out, rookie Jelle Blaauw connected for a 2-run single to make it 3-0. HCAW left two runners behind when a flyout ended the inning.

But the Bussum-squad failed to hold onto the early lead, as Neptunus answered with four runs in its first at bat off of Ivan Granados. The lefthander began by walking Stijn van der Meer and Benjamin Dille. A flyout enabled Van der Meer to advance to third base and he then scored on a single by Dwayne Kemp. Gianison Boekhoudt followed with a 2-run double that tied the score. Boekhoudt moved to third base on a grounder by Gyenuar Lopez and then Granados walked Adrian Anthony. An error on a force play-grounder by Urving Kemp, which could have been the third out, then gave Neptunus a 4-3 lead.

And that was it for today.

In the remainder of the game, not much happened. HCAW added only three more basehits and left five runners behind. Neptunus registered five more basehits and stranded four runners.

Neptunus only reached second base one more time in the remainder of the game. In the third, Gianison Boekhoudt singled with one out, but stranded on first base. In the fourth, Stijn van der Meer singled with two outs, but then was caught stealing. In the sixth, Robin Schel took over the pitching for Granados and gave up a lead-off single to Boekhoudt. He was forced out on a grounder by Gyenuar Lopez, who then was caught stealing moments later. In the seventh, Daniel Fernandes singled with one out and advanced on a sacrifice bunt by Van der Meer to become the lone Neptunus-runner to reach second base. In the eighth, off of new pitcher Roel Bellinga, Dwayne Kemp led off with a single, but also was caught stealing.

UVV vs. Corendon Kinheim

At Vleuten, UVV won 1-0 vs. Corendon Kinheim. It was a game, which had some rare situations, like a double infield-fly in one inning, a running out of line and a batter's interference. But it also saw two Kinheim-players being ejected for arguing balls-and-strikes. The lone run was scored in the third inning on a double by Brennan Nijhof.

Jurjen van Zijl went the distance and had a fine outing, giving up only four hits, while striking out nine. Two of Kinheim's four hits were hit by RenÚ Cremer.

In the first inning, Kinheim left a runner on third base. RenÚ Cremer led off with a single, moved on a sacrifice bunt by Niels van Weert and reached third on a grounder by Quintin De Cuba, but he stranded there.

Kinheim was then retired in order in the second and third inning. Trailing 1-0, Kinheim got the bases loaded in the fourth. Jurjen van Zijl began the at bat by walking Quintin De Cuba and Bryan Engelhardt. Next, Jeffrey Arends was called out on strikes and was ejected after arguing. Van Zijl also struckout Dashenko Ricardo, then walked Mervin Gario to load the bases, but a grounder ended the inning.

It wasn't Kinheim's day today. In the sixth, Engelhardt led off with a single, but then UVV turned a double play. And in the seventh, Jefferson Muzo was called out for batter's interference after Sven van de Sanden had reached on an error. The inning then ended, when the latter was picked off.

In the eighth, Cremer led off with his second single. He was then caught stealing in a double play, while Niels van Weert got a called strikeout. And that resulted in the second ejection, as Van Weert also argued the strike-zone.

UVV hit only five basehits today. In the first inning, Gilmer Lampe singled with two outs off of Nick Veltkamp, but then was caught stealing. UVV then left a runner in the second inning in which Kinheim turned a double play.

In the third, UVV scored the lone run of the game. With one out, Nick Peels walked and Norbert Jongerius singled. Brennan Nijhof then followed with a double that gave UVV an 1-0 lead. Hereafter, Jongerius tried to score on a grounder to short by Gilmer Lampe, but he was ruled out at the plate for running out of line. Moments later, the inning ended when Lampe was caught stealing again.

In the fourth, UVV got the bases loaded with two outs. Lead-off hitter Dennis De Quint was hit by a pitch, then Mike Bazuin singled. Next, both Jordan Illis and Joris van Ballegooy popped the ball into the air and were called out with an infield-fly. But UVV got the bases loaded when Thomas Smits walked, but then inning ended when Nick Peels hit the third pop-fly in the inning.

In the seventh, UVV got the bases loaded with no outs. Jean-Paul Gulinck took over the pitching for Nick Veltkamp and walked Nick Peels and Norbert Jongerius. Hereafter, Pim Walsma took over and saw the runner's advance in a stolen base/fielder's choice-situation. Walsma then loaded the bases by hitting Brennan Nijhof with a pitch. But the righthander then followed with a strikeout and was supported with a double play to end the inning.

In the top of the ninth inning, Jurjen van Zijl retired the side to end the game. For Van Zijl, this was his first 9-inning complete game since June 12, 2010. On that day, he went the distance in a 4-1 victory vs. L&D Amsterdam Pirates, while pitching for Konica Minolta Pioniers. In that game, Mervin Gario and Jefferson Muzo were Van Zijl's teammates at Pioniers, but today played for opposing Kinheim.

van Zijl's threw his last 9-inning, complete game shutout on May 11, 2010. And back then, the opponent also was Kinheim, which then lost 2-0. Like today, starting for Kinheim that day was Nick Veltkamp. Did Kinheim hit four hits today, in the 2010 game, Van Zijl limited the Haarlem-squad to only two. RenÚ Cremer, Bryan Engelhardt and Bj÷rn Henrichs were the only players who played today and in 2010 for Kinheim.

Only three runs of ADO Lakers were earned, as the defense of The Hawks committed eight errors. It was the second time that The Hawks committed eight errors in a game at the big league-level. The first time was on June 22 last year vs. Corendon Kinheim. The Hawks lost that game 11-10 after having led 9-6 after three innings.

ADO Lakers initially took a 2-0 lead by scoring a run in the third and fourth inning off of starter Kevin van Veen.

In the third inning, Joshua Zara led off with a double, but then was eliminated after next batter Jesper van Aken grounded to Van Veen. Brian Raap then was hit by a pitch and the bases got loaded when a throwing error to third base was made on a bunt by Jason Jakobus. Another error then followed on a bunt by next batter Stephen Henson, which gave ADO Lakers an 1-0 lead. With the bases still loaded the inning ended when Christian Diaz lined into a double play.

ADO Lakers made it 2-0 in the fourth inning when Kelvi Martinez walked with one out, moved on a errant pick-off and a grounder, then scored on a single by Joshua Zara.

ADO Lakers starter Ibrahin Redan was supported with a double play in the first inning after a lead-off walk. He then saw his defense turn another double play in the second at bat. In the fifth, Redan gave up singles to Jules Peters (with one out) and Rodney Michel (with two outs), but they were left behind.

The Hawks then scored three runs in the sixth to take over the lead. Bob de Bruijn led off with a triple, then Berend Ruben was hit by a pitch. The two runners were then awarded a next base on a balk by Redan, which eventually led to the ejection of ADO Lakers Head Coach Gino Henson. Redan followed with a walk for Steven Wharwood, but struckout the next two batters. Hereafter, the bases got loaded when Jules Peters reached on an error and the tying run was scored when Gino Hersilia was hit by a pitch. The Hawks took a 3-2 lead when next batter Rodney Michel walked, which led to a pitching change. Jurandy Girigori took over and The Hawks left the bases loaded when he ended the at bat with a strikeout.

Trailing 3-2, ADO Lakers struck with a 7-run rally in the seventh inning on only one basehit. Edilberto Oropesa, who had come on in relief for The Hawks in the previous inning, walked Brian Raap and Jason Jakobus. After the two advanced on a passed ball, a grounder followed. To set up a force play, powerhitter Christian Diaz was walked intentionally. That appeared to be successful, as next batter Glenn Romney indeed followed with a force play-grounder. However, an error at the plate was made, resulting in the tying run. Kelvi Martinez followed with a 2-run double, the next run was scored on a balk and a walk for Irving Redan led to the next pitching change. Evan Simons took over and loaded the bases when he walked Joshua Zara. Another error on the next force play-grounder by Wimsley van Heyningen then gave ADO Lakers two more runs and a sacrifice fly by Brian Raap made it 9-3 in favor of the home team.

But the game wasn't over yet, as The Hawks answered with its traditional 4-run rally in the eighth inning. Pinch-hitter Frans van den Heuvel and Jules Peters both walked, then scored on an one-out double by Rodney Michel. This brought Glenn Romney to the mound as new pitcher and he saw the next run being scored on a missed fly in the outfield plus a single by Berend Ruben. After Steven Wharwood was walked intentionally, The Hawks left two runners behind when Gregory Trinidad lined out.

Now leading only 9-7, ADO Lakers added a run in the home of the eighth on an error. An RBI-double by Rodney Michel gave The Hawks an additional run in the ninth, but it ended up short.
