L&D catcher Sidney de Jong opened the score in the 4th by hitting a Diegomar Markwell fastball just over the leftfield fence.
In the 7th a soft liner by Michael Kramer scored Rashid Gerard from 2nd. . Gerard had singled to 3rd and advanced on an infield out by Roland Henrique jr. In the bottom of the 7th, Urbanus lifted Jos de Jong when he walked Martijn Meeuwis with 2 outs. Lefty Rik Geestman got Shaldimar Daantji to ground to second to end the inning.
In the top of the 9th Jorian van Acker, who reliever Markwell after 7 innings, walked Berkenbosch. DOOR Neptunus manager Steve Jansen brought Berry van Driel. He walked Gerard and hit Henrique jr to load the bases. When Meeuwis could not handle van Driel’s outside pitch, Berkenbosch scored 3-0. An error by shortstop Dwayne Kemp and Wesley Connor’s sacrifice fly meant 5-0. In the bottom of the 9th 3 consecutive hits by Danny Rombley, Dwayne Kemp and Jeffrey Arends scored one run.. Pinch hitter Eldrion Regina struck out and following a walk to Meeuwis, Rien Vernooy (just in from the USA) hit into a fielders choice to score Kemp. Final score 5-2.
It was a disappointing game for DOOR Neptunus (only 6 hits of which 3 in the 9th) and a very good game by L&S Amsterdam.
Tomorrow’s game in Amsterdam will start at 1:15 PM because of the fact that the game will be televised. Probable starters are Rob Cordemans and Leon Boyd.
