2021 Dutch hoofdklasse: L&D Amsterdam Pirates Beats Hoofddorp Pioniers in Extra Innings

A made up game for the game that was cancelled on Thursday night. A nice pitching duel in which L&D Amsterdam Pirates collected five hits and Hoofddorp Pioniers was limited to one hit. Pirates had to go into the tenth inning to score the game’s only run.

L&D Amsterdam Pirates  1  –  0  Hoofddorp Pioniers

As neither team scored in the regular nine innings, the game needed extra innings. But before that, the fans could enjoy a nice pitching duel. L&D Amsterdam Pirates’ Naut Kragt pitched eight solid innings in which he gave up only one hit, issued three walks and struck out six. His opponent, Scott Prins had a solid outing as well. In seven frames, he gave up two hits, walked three and struck out two. 

Nevertheless, both teams had some scoring opportunities. Pirates had runners in scoring position five times, and it got the bases loaded in the eighth but could not cash in. Pioniers had two runners in scoring position but also failed to get the timely hits. 

Eventually, in the top of the tenth inning, Pirates rallied for the winning run. It started with Gilmer Lampe hitting to right field, followed by a stolen base before Denzel Richardson singled to left center field to drive in Lampe for the 1-0 lead. 

Wim Geestman, who entered the game in the ninth inning, retired all three Pioniers batters he faced in the tenth for the win. He pitched two perfect innings in which he struck out three. Lucca van der Schouw took the loss. In 2.1 innings in relief, he allowed the runner on base that would score the winning run. Van der Schouw allowed three hits, walked two andHoofddorp Pioniers JS1 - RCH-PINGUINS Heemstede struck out one. 

Since it was a pitching duel, the hits did not come cheap. Two batters collected two hits out of four at-bats: Gilmer Lampe and Denzel Richardson. Lampe tripled and scored the winning run, Richardson drove in that run.
