Starting Pitchers coming series

AMSTERDAM (Neth.) - On Thursday-evening (August 11), the next 3-game series opens in the Dutch big league. Coming Tuesday, the final game is also scheduled of the 3-game series between L&D Amsterdam Pirates and Curaçao Neptunus, who played the games in this series on three consevutive Tuesday-evenings.

In the previous series, the top-4 was decided, as Twins Oosterhout became the fourth team to qualify for the Play-Offs. The team also won its 21st game of the season, which ties the club's highest total while playing in the highest league. Twins also won 21 regular season-games in 1995. The team last played in the Top-4 Pool in 2018. The same four teams from that season have now qualified for the Play-Offs of this year. Coincidentally, these four teams will face each other in the coming series.

Last Sunday, the final game of the 3-game series between Twins and Hoofddorp Pioniers was halted by the umpiring crew in the fourth inning due to circumstances on the field. The status of this game has yet to be determined.

These are also the weeks that several players will return to the USA to resume their study there and to play in college-baseball.

Beneath are the announced starting pitchers for the upcoming series in the big league. As always, these assignments can change on game-days. The starters for next Tuesday-evening's game have yet to be decided.
