Corendon Kinheim Visits Konica Minolta

THE NETHERLANDS – A resurgent Corendon Kinheim will be looking to continue its winning ways when the Haarlem club visits Hoofddorp Friday night to battle the struggling Konica Minolta Pioniers in the Dutch League.

Kinheim (6-1) heads into this weekend’s action with the league’s best pitching and hitting units. David Bergman (3-0, 1.88 ERA) and Duko Jansen (2-0, 1.69) headline a pitching corps with a 1.33 team ERA, while Bryan Englehardt is hitting a league-high .467 for an offensive lineup that is batting .322.

Konica Minolta (3-5), which lost to DOOR Neptunus in last year’s Holland Series, has struggled mightily at the plate thus far this season with a Mario Mendoza-like .176 batting mark. Jurjen van Zijl (2-2, 2.84 ERA) and Eddie Aucoin (1-1, 1.80 ERA) are the main men for a pitching corps with a respectable 3.49 ERA.

The Almere Magpies (3-4) will have its hands full when the reigning Dutch League title-holder comes to town on Friday with an unblemished 8-0 record, and a lineup boasting six of the league’s top 15 hitters.

In Bussum, Mr. Cocker HCAW (3-4) and the L&D Amsterdam Pirates (4-3) will meet in a pivotal early season matchup, while Sparta/Feyenoord (1-6) will host ADO (1-6) Friday night at Rotterdam.
