Initially, the first inning went well for HCAW.
Daniel Fernandes led off the game for Pioniers with a walk, but the HCAW-defense then turned a double play and a strikeout ended the at bat.
But from the second inning on, it was Pioniers all the way.
In the second at bat, Pioniers scored twice.
With one out, Mark-Jan Moorman doubled, then advanced on a wild pitch which also was ball-four for Kevin Dirksen.
A following double by Djewi Appelman then gave Pioniers a 2-0 lead.
In the third inning, Pioniers struck with nine runs to put the game out of reach for HCAW.
Twelve of the first thirteen batters reached base safely!
HCAW-starter Sander Helmendach got the bases loaded when Daniel Fernandes and Dirk van 't Klooster both reached on an infield-hit and Danny Rombley walked.
A following single by Vince Rooi then brought in the first run of the rally.
Hereafter, HCAW's Head Coach Ralph Milliard visited Helmendach.
When the game resumed, Helmendach's third delivery to next batter Mark-Jan Moorman ended over the rightfield-fence for a grand slam homerun!
A flyout followed, but then Djewi Appelman walked and Kevin Weijgertse doubled.
That marked the end for Helmendach, who was relieved by Gijs van Els.
The lefthander was greeted with a 2-run single by Max Draijer.
Infield-hits by Daniel Fernandes and Dirk van 't Klooster (who also started the inning this way) then loaded the bases.
Moments later, Draijer scored while Fernandes was forced out on a grounder by Danny Rombley, then a single by Vince Rooi brought in the ninth run in this big rally.
In the fourth inning, Van Els, who had ended the third inning with a strikeout, gave up a lead-off single to Kevin Dirksen.
He followed with two strikeouts, but then was replaced by Leon Elshof.
The righthander made his first appearance of the season after being sidelined recovering from an injury.
Elshof gave up a double to Max Draijer.
Dirksen circled the bases all the way from first base and scored just in time before Draijer was eliminated at third base trying to stretch his double into a triple to end the inning.
In the fifth inning, Fernandes led off for Pioniers with a double, then later scored on sacrifice fly by rookie Darry Williams, who had taken over in centerfield for Rombley in the bottom of the fourth.
In the sixth, Elshof got two quick outs.
Having thrown 29 pitches, Elshof had done his job in his comeback and was replaced by Tim Niekerk, who closed the inning.
In the seventh, leading 13-0, Pioniers added three more runs off of Niekerk.
Max Draijer led off with a walk, then Daniel Fernandes hit his second double in the game.
Dirk van 't Klooster followed with a runscoring grounder.
With two outs, Vince Rooi delivered a runscoring double, then went on to score himself when rookie Milan Lammerts singled.
HCAW stranded seven runners in the game off of starter Lars Huijer, who gave up five hits.
Four of these runners stranded in scoring position.
In the first inning, with two outs, Roy Seltenrijch and Emersson Paula singled, but a strikeout ended the at bat.
In the third, Peter van Doesburg was left on second base and in the fifth, rookie Jelle Blaauw also was left on second base.
In the sixth, Seltenrijch led off with a single, but then Paula grounded into a double play.
Hereafter, Jarreau Martina's batted ball rolled near the third base-line just in front of the batting circle.
Catcher Daniel Fernandes had to turn around to retrieve the ball.
He made a bad throw, which hit Martina, but it would have been a very close play at first base when the throw had been correct and so, Martina was credited with an infield-hit.
Next batter Kevin Nieveld was then hit by a pitch, but HCAW again stranded two runners.
In the seventh, reliever Taylor Clemensia retired the side to end the game.
