Starting Pitchers coming series

AMSTERDAM (Neth.) - The first games of the 2021 season in the highest Dutch baseball-league have been played. The season opened with rain on Thursday-evening (April 29), resulting in three cancellations. With that, the first three make-up games also have been played, two on Friday, one last Monday.

The first wins and losses are in the books. The first homeruns have been hit, the first Saves have been credited. And so have the first Blown Saves. There were big scores, there were surprises.

It's time for the second round of games, the second 3-game series that opens on Thursday-evening, May 6. This season, Twins Oosterhout will play its home-games in the evening at the site of its opponent, due to the insufficient light-installation on its home-site in Oosterhout. However, on Thursday, Twins will play at home at the site of Quick Amersfoort in Amersfoort, as there is no light-installation at the home-site of opponent Silicon Storks in The Hague.

Beneath are the announced starting pitchers. As always, these assignments can change on game-days.

This season, the starting pitchers will be published (or updated) on Wednesday-evening, as some of the teams conduct their practice sessions on Wednesday instead of Tuesday, which has to do with the testing of the players for the games on Thursday.
