Quick Amersfoort outscores Storks; Two games suspended
AMERSFOORT / HAARLEM / BUSSUM (Neth.) -
Cityside Apartments Quick Amersfoort won 7-4 on Friday-evening (September 7) in a make-up game against Silicon Storks.
The game was initially scheduled for Thursday-evening, but then rained out.
Two other games that also rained out on Thursday were scheduled for tonight.
Both games went underway, but were halted due to heavy rain and will be completed in the weekend.
In Haarlem, DSS played at home against Meerlease Pioniers.
Tom Stuifbergen made his first start in the Relegation Pool for DSS in his first appearance since August 27.
Stuifbergen made his last start on May 19, which also was his last appearance, as he was sidelined with an injury thereafter.
He returned to the mound on August 23, pitching one inning in relief.
Tonight, Pioniers was leading 3-0 in the top of the sixth inning when the game was halted due to rain.
With runners on second and third base, a 2-minute rain-delay followed.
While it still rained, the game resumed and a walk loaded the bases.
It then started to rain heavier and with an 1-1 count on the next batter, another delay followed.
This time, the game was halted definitively, as the field became unplayable.
The game will resume in this situation and be completed on Sunday, September 9 at 1 PM before the start of the regularly scheduled game.
The pitchers-of-record are Lars Vogelaar (DSS) and Lars Huijer (Pioniers).
In Bussum, the game between HCAW and De Glaskoning Twins was halted halfway the ninth inning.
Twins took an 1-0 lead in the second inning, but HCAW came alongside in the seventh.
After completion of the top of the ninth inning, heavy rain made the field unplayable, resulting in the halting of the game.
It will be completed on Saturday, September 8 at 1 PM before the start of the regularly scheduled game.
The pitchers-of-record are Dennis Burgersdijk (HCAW) and Jan Evertse (Twins).
Quick Amersfoort opened the score with two runs in the third inning and added three more in the fourth at bat.
Storks narrowed the deficit to 5-4 in the top of the fifth, but Quick then added insurance runs in the sixth and eighth inning.
Two former teammates faced each other as starting pitcher.
Jos de Jong started for Quick Amersfoort, while Jurrian Koks took the mound for Storks.
The two were teammates in 2011-2014 when they played for Amsterdam Pirates.
De Jong went the distance for Quick Amersfoort, struckout six hitters and gave up nine basehits.
The righthander was supported with two runs in the third inning.
With one out, Jules Cremer walked and Joran Berkhout singled off of Storks-starter Jurrian Koks.
The two scored when Jelle Blaauw followed with a single and Bryan Engelhardt added a sacrifice fly.
Quick scored three more runs in the fourth at bat, this time scoring with two outs.
All three runs were unearned.
With one out, Ryan Dale and Remian Denis singled.
With two outs, a grounder by Jules Cremer ended in an error, which loaded the bases.
All three runners scored when a throwing error followed on a grounder by next hitter Joran Berkhout, who started the season for Storks for whom he played in seven games.
Storks rallied for four runs in the top of the fifth inning when the Quick-defense committed two errors, resulting in two unearned runs.
Lead-off hitter Eduardo Guerra reached second base on an error and scored when a throwing error followed a basehit by Gino Gil.
With one out, Storks added three runs thanks to a double by Runai Coran, a single by Jurriaan Dijk and a sacrifice fly by Kenny George.
Hereafter, Joost van den Bergh singled, but the inning ended when Dijk was eliminated at third base trying to advanced an extra base on the hit.
Quick Amersfoort added an insurance run in the sixth and eighth inning.
Both were scored on basehits by Jules Cremer.
He hit an RBI-double in the sixth, then produced a runscoring single in the eighth.
