Even though HCAW had runners in scoring position next to the sixth inning, in which they scored their sole run on Seb Visser’s single to left field after Nick Veltkamp gave up two walks and hit one batter with a pitch, the team never was close to scoring a run. Two of the three runs Pirates scored on singles by Nick Urbanus and Rodney Daal. One run was scored when Zerzinho Croes stole home plate.
