Starting Pitchers coming series

AMSTERDAM (Neth.) - On Thursday-evening (July 8), the next 3-game series opens in the Dutch big league. In two of these series, the games are scheduled for Thursday, Friday and Saturday. That has to do with the participation of reigning champion L&D Amsterdam Pirates and Curaçao Neptunus in the European Champions Cup-tournament, which opens next Tuesday (July 13) in Ostrava (Czech Republic).

With that, the series of Pirates and Neptunus against respectively HCAW and Quick Amersfoort will be played on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The games in the other two series will be played on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

Curaçao Neptunus-lefthander Diegomar Markwell is approaching his 1,000th career strikeout. He now needs only five more strikeouts to reach the milestone. Markwell was named starting pitcher for the third game of Neptunus on Saturday at home against Quick Amersfoort.

Four pitchers will make their first start of the season. Sebastian Kok and Dylan Farley will start in their first game for Hoofddorp Pioniers, Aaron de Groot makes his first start for Neptunus and Kevin van Veen does the same for Silicon Storks.

Beneath are the announced starting pitchers for the upcoming series in the big league. As always, these assignments can change on game-days.
