Orange squad again gives up no runs

Nederlandse tekst

After the victory against the professional baseball-team on Monday-evening, the Netherlands Softball Team returned to the field on Wednesday, July 16. This time, the second meeting with the Indiana Slammers was scheduled. The Orange squad played convincingly, collected eleven basehits and won 4-0. Three pitchers gave up only six hits to the Slammers.

Beneath, Team Manager Peter Schuler looks back to the activities on Day 16 of the Illinois-trip.

Full schedule

The day began with a nice breakfast-buffet at the Hyatt Hotel. Then into the vans off to the Dome for an additional practice session. We especially did a lot of hitting, but also some other things. Indoors with airco. What a luxury!

At 3 PM, we ate at Old Country Buffet. We then changed into our game-clothes in the hotel and it was off to the field against the Indiana Slammers. Earlier during this tour, this team was a difficult opponent.

But today, we were the better team almost the entire game and the Slammers never were dangerous. They only got a runner on third base in the seventh inning (we played nine). Our pitchers dominated and gave up only six hits.

Offensively, it took awhile before we opened the score. In the fifth inning, Dinet Oosting singled and advanced on a nice bunt by Shareday Christina. Merel Oosterveld then walked and the double by Jessie van Aalst enabled us to take a 2-0 lead.

In the seventh inning, Dinet led off this time with a walk and again moved on a good bunt by Shareday. This time, Chantal Versluis batted in the third run. She herself crossed home plate on a nice squeeze by Merel to make it 4-0.

And that also became the final score. Our girls collected eleven basehits.

Box Score Netherlands vs. Indiana Slammers

And so, the coach was very satiesfied with thus 'dress rehearsal' for the game on Thursday against the Chicago Bandits. Those same Bandits yesterday won 1-0 of a baseball All Star Team in St. Louis with Jarryd Farrel (former DVH) in the circle.
