In the make up game for the rainout of Thursday night, L&D Amsterdam Pirates did not have much problems with Hoofddorp Pioniers and got its revenge for the routing it got the day before.
Hoofddorp Pioniers 1 – 8 L&D Amsterdam Pirates
Like the previous day, Hoofddorp Pioniers took a 1-0 lead in the first inning when Raul Jacobs tripled down the right field line and scored on the sac fly by Randolph Oduber.
It took Pirates until the third inning to get on the board. Mick Vos led off with a single, followed by a walk drawn by Thomas Kwakernaak. The bases were loaded when Roelie Henrique bunted and reach first base safely. After Gilmer Lampe hit into a double play, on which Mick Vos scored the game-tying run, Denzel Richardson singled home Thomas Kwakernaak with a hit through the left side. From that moment on, Pirates did not look back.
In each of the following innings, but the sixth, Pirates scored at least a run and eventually stepped off the diamond with an 8-1 victory.
Nick Veltkamp pitched five solid innings, in which he allowed only one run on four hits, walked one and struck out one. Of course his defense contributed to this good outing. For example in the fourth inning when Pioniers had runners on first and second with one out. Denzel Brooks flied out to center field and Randolph Oduber was doubled off second base thanks to a great throw by Gilmer Lampe.
Lars Broersen took the loss. In 3.1 innings, he allowed three runs ( two earned) on three hits and four walks.
Best hitter for L&D Amsterdam Pirates was Denzel Richardson, who went 3 for 5 with a double and a triple, as he drove in three runs and scored one himself.
