Amsterdam Pirates did everything today in only one inning, which happened to be the first at bat.
The team then recorded all three basehits it hit and all three runs it scored in this game.
In the bottom of the first inning, Remco Draijer led off with a walk and Zerzinho Croes singled.
An outfield-error following the single gave Pirates runners on second and third base.
Moments later, a run was scored on a single by Nick Urbanus.
With runners at the corners, a double-steal followed with Croes scoring the second run.
With one out, Rodney Daal added a runscoring single to make it a 3-0 score.
Daal was later forced out and a strikeout ended the inning, but Amsterdam had taken a decisive lead.
In the remainder of the game, Amsterdam Pirates was held both scoreless and hitless by Chris Pfau, who went the distance for HCAW.
The American lefthander allowed three more hitters to reach base and only one of them got into scoring position.
In the second inning, he walked Remco Draijer with two outs, but he stranded on first base.
In the fifth inning, Max Clarijs led off for Amsterdam with a walk.
He was moved to third base on two consecutive sacrifice bunts by Remco Draijer and Zerzinho Croes.
However, Amsterdam was unable to add an insurance run, as Pfau closed with a strikeout.
In the sixth, Kenny Berkenbosch became the final runner for Amsterdam.
He also led off with a walk, but was eliminated in a double play.
The Amsterdam-pitching also did fine.
The four pitchers got several baserunners, but gave up only one run, as they were supported again by their defense.
HCAW got into scoring position three times off of starter Kyle Ward, but he held the Bussum-squad scoreless.
With one out in the top of the first inning, Delano Selassa reached on an error, but was eliminated in a double play.
With two outs in the third inning, the lefthander gave up singles to Denzel Bryson and Jeandro Tromp, then a grounder ended the at bat.
In the fourth and fifth inning, HCAW got another runner in scoring position.
In the fourth, Roelie Henrique led off with a single and stole second base, but Ward retired the next three hitters.
And in the fifth, Kevin Weijgertse and Denzel Bryson singled with one out, but also were left behind.
HCAW got its most productive at bat in the top of the sixth.
Nick Veltkamp took over the Amsterdam-pitching.
The lefthander got the bases loaded when he hit lead-off hitter Roelie Henrique with a pitch, then walked Vince Rooi and Bryce Cherry.
Another pitching change followed and Maickel Rietel took over.
He gave up a runscoring single to Seb Visser that narrowed the deficit to 3-1.
However, HCAW left three runners behind, as three flyouts followed to end the inning.
Rietel retired the side in the seventh inning, then closer Jim Ploeger took over in the eighth.
He began with two strikeouts, then gave up a double to Seb Visser.
The inning ended when Ploeger caught a pop-fly.
The lefthander retired the side (one strikeout) in the ninth to earn his third save of the season.
Kyle Ward was winning pitcher for the fourth time.
