Easy win for L&D Amsterdam Pirates

L&D Amsterdam Pirates  11  –  5  DSS

L&D Amsterdam Pirates took a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning. But that lead was erased in the bottom of the second as DSS tied the game.
But in the fourth inning Pirates would take the lead as it scored two runs. Danny Rombley singled and was driven in on Kenny Berkenbosch’ double to left field. Berkenbosch himself scored on Jesse Aussems “hit” to left field where Ryan Miner dropped it.
In the fifth, Nick Urbanus doubled down the right field line and advanced to third base on a wild pitch. Urbanus scored on Michael Duursma’s single to center field. In the remaining innings Pirates would score in the same sequence as in the fourth and fifth inning: 2,1,2,1.
DSS got closer in the seventh and the eighth inning. In the seventh, after relieving Kyle Ward, Pim Walsma retired the first batter but gave up a walk to Joffrey Heus. After Heus advanced a base on a passed ball and a single of Melvin Perdue, he scored DSS’ third run when catcher Max Clarijs committed a throwing error.
In the bottom of the eighth, Walsma walked the first two batters that he faced before retiring the next two. But Sven van der Sanden drew another walk to load the bases before Menno Lenting got on base on a fielding error by Michael Duursma that allowed Ryan Miner to score. Another walk given up Walsma drove in the fifth run for DSS. At that point, Walsma was replaced by Daan Hendrix, who got out of the inning and retired the side in the ninth. 

Kyle Ward pitched six innings for the win. He gave up two runs on four hits, walked three and struck out seven.
Mike Groen was tabbed with the loss as he gave up seven runs (four earned) on eight hits.

Best hitter for L&D Amsterdam Pirates was Michael Duursma, who collected four hits in six at bats. He drove in three runs, scored two himself and hit two doubles.

Both teams played very sloppy defense as DSS committed three errors and L&D Amsterdam Pirates four.
