DSS nips Quick Amersfoort in exhibition-opener

HAARLEM (Neth.) - After weeks with cold, snow and freezing conditions, all eight Dutch big league-teams finally were able to play an exhibition game on Saturday (March 24). The weather conditions were very acceptable, at some sites still a little chilly, but on other locations very comfortable.

DSS opened its exhibition-season with an 1-0 win against Quick Amersfoort in a game that lasted seven innings. The two teams meet each other again on Sunday in Amersfoort in another 7-inning game.

The lone run in today's game was scored in the sixth inning. Koen Werkman then hit a triple off of reliever Aaron Isenia and scored on a sacrifice fly by Odion Gouverneur.

Quick Amersfoort was limited to only one basehit by the four DSS-pitchers. It was veteran Bryan Engelhardt, who accounted for the lone basehit, which was an infield-hit.

Jerry Breek and Marco Wels, the Head Coaches of respectively DSS and Quick Amersfoort, both enjoyed being back on the field. ,,This was what you can expect of a first game after not being able to play due to the cold'', stated Wels. ,,I expect that both teams will improve on their hitting in the upcoming weeks.''

Breek added: ,,Not much happened today, but it was a good feeling to play again. We did what we had to do.''
