Terrasvogels and DSS outscore each other
Nederlands

SANTPOORT-ZUID (Neth.) - Terrasvogels and DSS split their double-header on Saturday (July 15), as the season resumed in the Golden League.

The season was interrupted after games played on June 17 and 18 for the European Championship in Bollate (Italy). That event ended on Saturday, July 1 with the Netherlands Softball Team capturing the title by winning the Final against Italy with a 7-1 score. There also were no games scheduled in the highest league in the weekend of July 8 and 9.

In today's opener, Terrasvogels led only 2-1 halfway the sixth inning, but then rallied for six runs to reach a 7-run difference, win 8-1 and finish the game via the mercy-rule. The game ended on a walk-off, 2-run triple by Katharina Szalay. The lone DSS-run was a homerun by Denice van Dijk. Winning pitcher Micaela Whitney struckout nine batters and gave up only three hits.

In the second game, DSS recorded a 5-0 shutout on nine basehits. Winning pitcher Dagmar Bloeming struckout nine batters and gave up five hits, including three by Katharina Szalay.

Micaela Whitney went the distance for Terrasvogels and had a fine outing. The righthander struckout nine batters and gave up only three hits. In the first five innings, she saw DSS get into scoring position three times, but each time closed with a strikeout.

In the top of the first inning, Areke Spel walked for DSS with one out and stole second base. Next batter Sophie Bugter also walked, but Micaela Whitney struckout the next two batters. In the third, Spel again walked with one out and stole second base. She then was caught stealing at third base and another strikeout closed the at bat.

In the fourth, DSS got into scoring position for the third time. Morgan Sampson led off with an infield-hit, then Lisa Waasdorp reached when an error was made on her sacrifice bunt. Hereafter, Sampson was forced out at third base and two strikeouts ended the inning.

Terrasvogels got into scoring position for the first time in the second inning off of starter Quincey Catsburg. Rhowan Stuart doubled with two outs, but stranded on second base.

In the fourth, with one out, Suka Van Gurp doubled with one out and reached third base on a grounder, but also was left behind.

Terrasvogels then opened the score in the bottom of the fifth inning. Jessica Waasdorp led off with a walk, which was followed by a pitching change. Svenja de Lincel took over the DSS-pitching, who gave up an one-out double to Gabi Obia. Hereafter, Katharina Szalay reached on an error, which enabled Waasdorp's pinch-runner Dervisa Mutic to score the first run. A sacrifice fly by Kimberly Jones lifted the lead to 2-0.

With two outs in the top of the sixth inning, Denice van Dijk drove the ball into right-centerfield for DSS. There, it hit the top of the fence and jumped over it for a homerun to make it a 2-1 score.

In the bottom of the sixth, with no outs, Terrasvogels rallied for six runs on six basehits, including a double and two triples to reach a mercy-rule, 7-run difference. Suka Van Gurp led off with a double and advanced on an outfield-error, then scored when Ella Krommendijk followed with a triple.

Pinch-hitter Jessica Waasdorp then also singled and Sanne Korpel accounted for the next run with the third consecutive single. An error on a force play-grounder by Gabi Obia led to the the next run and the game ended when Katharina Szalay delivered a walk-off, 2-run triple that increased the lead to 8-1.

Terrasvogels got into scoring position in the first inning off of Dagmar Bloeming. Katharina Szalay led off with a single, moved on a sacrifice bunt, but stranded on second base. Szalay reached base again in third via a bunt-single with two outs, but this time, she was forced out.

After Micaela Whitney had retired the side in the fourth and fifth inning, Terrasvogels got close to a run in the bottom of the fifth. Pinch-hitter Dervisa Mutic led off with a triple. Dagmar Bloeming followed with a strikeout, then Mutic was eliminated at the plate trying to score on a grounder by Sanne Korpel. Moments later, Katharina Szalay connected for her third basehit in the game, but Bloeming closed with a strikeout.
