(April 19)

Pioniers set the tone by scoring three runs in the first at bat off of starter Bobby Carrington. The team got on the board quickly, as Daniel Fernandes led off with a single, then scored when Danny Rombley followed with a double. Hereafter, Dirk van 't Klooster and Vince Rooi also singled to make it 2-0. After an infield-fly, Quintin De Cuba delivered the fifth basehit in this inning to bring in the third run. Later in the at bat, the team left the bases loaded.

The fourth run was added in the third inning when De Cuba led off with a homerun.

In the next at bat, Pioniers increased the lead to 6-0. With two outs, Vince Rooi reached on an error, then Mark-Jan Moorman was hit by a pitch. Both then scored when De Cuba followed with a double, which led to a pitching change.

In the sixth, the seventh run was registered when Rooi led off with a single and went on to score when Kevin Dirksen reached on an error.

Pioniers had a chance of ending the game via the 10-run difference mercy-rule, but that was avoided by the defense of The Hawks, resulting in the Hoofddorp-squad stranding 12 runners in the first seven innings.

The 10-run difference was reached, but Pioniers needed all nine at bats to accomplish that. In the eighth, a run was added via a single by Kevin Weijgertse, but two more runners were left behind. In the ninth, a double by Taylor Clemensia and grounder by Mark-Jan Moorman made it 10-0. The ninth was the lone at bat in which Pioniers didn't leave a runner behind on the bases.

The Hawks didn't get much opportunities to do something back. In the first inning, Chris Williams walked and moved to third base when Amir Daou singled, but he was eliminated at second base trying to advance. Williams then was left behind. In the third, Jules Peters singled with one out, but was picked off first base. In the fourth, Pioniers turned a double play and in the next three innings, only two players reached base.

The Hawks was most productive in the last two innings. In the eighth, Louie-Jay Sienders led off with a single, and Michel Offerman walked with one out, but then two force outs followed. In the ninth, there were runners on first and second base with two outs, but then a double play ended the game.
