On day three of round two, HCAW hosted Curaçao Neptunus. DSS went to Hoofddorp to face Pioniers, Cityside Apartments Quick Amersfoort slaughtered Silicon Storks in the Hague and L&D Amsterdam Pirates did not have any problems with De Glaskoning Twins in Amsterdam.
Curaçao Neptunus 5 – 1 HCAW
Three errors led to three unearned runs for Curaçao Neptunus. Not that the club wouldnot have won without the errors. HCAW could not get a grip on the pitches of the Neptunus pitchers. Only Japanese import Riki Saito gave up a run on two hits and a walk in one inning of work. Neptunus, on the other hand, scored two earned runs with Kaj Timmermans on the mound, so without those errors, the score would have been much more bearable. Timmermans gave up the first (earned) run in the second inning when Quentin de Cuba singled up the middle to drive in Shaldimar Daantji from second base.
The second earned run was scored in the fifth inning when Stijn van der Meer tripled down the right-field line and drove in Jochem Koedijk.
Elton Koeiman pitched 5.1 innings for Neptunus and limited HCAW to six hits, walked one and struck out two. With these 5.1 innings, Koeiman pitched long enough to earn the win.
Best hitter for Curaçao Neptunus was Jochem Koedijk as he went 2 for 4 with a run scored.
DSS 3 – 4 Hoofddorp Pioniers
