Starting Pitchers coming series

AMSTERDAM (Neth.) - From this week on, it's back to normal, as the 3-game series will begin again on Thursday. The previous two series opened on Wednesday-evening, as it was agreed before the start of the season that no games would not be scheduled on Saturday, April 27 and Sunday, May 5. However, there is one other difference this week, as the openers will not be played in the evening, but will begin at 2 PM in the afternoon on what is Ascension Day. Except for the home-team of Oosterhout Twins, which will begin at 5 PM.

On Tuesday-evening, two more make-up games were played. In Vleuten, home-playing UVV broke a 4-game losing streak by winning 4-1 against DSS/Kinheim.
In Hoofddorp, the visiting Oosterhout Twins nipped Worldwide Pharma Logistics Hoofddorp Pioniers, 3-2. Pioniers had won its previous three games.

In the previous series, Amsterdam Pirates swept UVV in three games to move into a tie with Curašao Neptunus for first place. Both teams now have twelve points, but Neptunus played three games less and still is the lone unbeaten team at the moment, having won all nine games it played so far. In the previous series, Neptunus swept HCAW, which is the team that has no games scheduled in the upcoming series.

Last week, HCAW added Aruban righthanded pitcher Nigel Calmes to its roster. He made his debut last Saturday.

Just before of the start of the new series, Amsterdam Pirates and UVV also expanded their pitching-staff with a new foreign addition. Both are experienced pitchers.

UVV added American righthander Phillip Rowland, who played professionally in Independent Leagues since 2012.

Amsterdam Pirates added Australian righthander Luke Wilkins. He not only played professionally in Australia since 2010, but also had been a member of the Australian National Team since 2018.

Beneath are the announced starting pitchers for the fifth 3-game series of the 2024 season that opens on Thursday-afternoon, May 9.
As always, these pitching assignments can change on game-days.
