Flanegin ties unique record; 4 shutouts on one day
DORDRECHT / AMSTERDAM / HAARLEM / THE HAGUE (Neth.) - On Thursday, veteran player D Flanegin of Vaessen Pioniers equaled an unique all-time record. When he entered the game against Mampaey The Hawks in the bottom of the sixth inning as new first baseman, he appeared in his 691st big league-game for Pioniers. With that, he tied the all-time record for most big league-games played for one team. Flanegin now shares the record with Jurjan Koenen, who played all his 691 career big league-games for Mr. Cocker HCAW, the last of which he played in 2009. Flanegin can become the recordholder on Saturday when Pioniers plays its next game against The Hawks in Dordrecht.

Also on Thursday, all four games played ended in a shutout, which is a rare feat. Last year, on June 26, all three scheduled games on that day ended in a shutout. In 2011, there were two days on which three of the four scheduled games ended in a shutout.

The top-3 extended their winning streaks. Corendon Kinheim won 8-0 vs. Mr. Cocker HCAW, DOOR Neptunus defeated ADO Lakers 9-0 and L&D Amsterdam Pirates outscored UVV 15-0. Vaessen Pioniers shutout Mampaey The Hawks, 13-0.

Mampaey The Hawks vs. Vaessen Pioniers
At Dordrecht, Vaessen Pioniers led 5-0 when it staged a 7-run rally in the fifth inning in the opener of their 3-game series against Mampaey The Hawks. Pioniers collected 13 basehits, including three by catcher Mark Duursma. American lefthander Josh Rickards gave up only two basehits in six innings, before being relieved by Daley Paalvast, who threw the seventh and final inning, in which he gave up one more basehit to The Hawks.

Pioniers opened the score in the first inning on an error, but also left the bases loaded. Two runs were added in the second at bat, which also were the result of an error, as two runners scored when a fly into the outfield was missed. Singles by Kevin Dirksen and Jefferson Muzo brought in two more runs in the third inning to make it 5-0.

Pioniers then decided the game with a 7-run rally in the fifth at bat. After a lead-off single by Duursma, a pitching change followed. While new pitcher Tim Sloots began with a walk for Mark-Jan Moorman, he appeared to come out of the inning unharmed, as two flyouts followed. But then the bases were loaded when Jefferson Muzo also walked. Another walk followed, this time for Chris Williams, to bring in a run, but also a new pitcher. Rick van Dijck took over and was greeted with a 2-run single by Phil Ortez. Danny Rombley and Vince Rooi then also received free passes to bring in another run. Hereafter, Mark Duursma brought in the next two runs with a single and a following double by Mark-Jan Moorman then brought in the seventh run in this at bat to lift the lead to 12-0. In the sixth inning, Pioniers scored another run on a single by Ortez.

In the home of the sixth inning, D Flanegin entered the game as new first baseman of Pioniers to equal an unique all-time record. The veteran player appeared in his 691st big league-game for Pioniers and with that, he tied the all-time record for most big games played for one team in an entire big league-career. Flanegin now shares the record with Jurjan Koenen, who played all his 691 career big league-games for Mr. Cocker HCAW, the last of which he played in 2009.

L&D Amsterdam Pirates vs. UVV
At Amsterdam, L&D Amsterdam Pirates handed UVV a big 15-0 shutout-loss to open their 3-game series.

The home team set the tone with a 5-run rally off of UVV-starter Jurjen van Zijl, who gave up six basehits. Lead-off hitter Michael Duursma was hit by a pitch, then the bases got loaded when Jesse Aussems and Percy Isenia followed with singles. A passed ball then led to a run, as did a grounder by Bas de Jong. Pirates got runners on first and third base when next batter Kenny Berkenbosch singled. Bas Nooij and Kevin Weijgertse followed with back-to-back RBI-singles and with two outs, Bjrn Hato connected for the sixth basehit in this inning to bring in the fifth run. The team then had batted around and the at bat ended when Duursma flied out in his second turn at bat in the opening-inning.

Amsterdam added a run in the second inning. With one out, Percy Isenia singled, but during his at bat, he hit catcher Joris van Ballegooy twice with his bat on a follow-through. A strikeout followed, then Berkenbosch also singled. Hereafter, Van Ballegooy left the game and was replaced by Giovanni Samboe, then Bas Nooij followed with a single to make it 6-0. But Pirates also left the bases loaded.

A sac-fly by Jesse Aussems made it 7-0 in the third inning, then an 8-run rally in the fourth off of two pitchers put the game out of reach for UVV. The eight runs were scored on only four hits, as the UVV-defense contributed with three errors. Oscar Meuris took over the pitching for Van Zijl, but was greeted with a single by Bas de Jong. With one out, he hit Bas Nooij with a pitch. A single by Kevin Weijgertse was then followed by a throwing error, leading to a run and single by Rashid Gerard produced the next Amsterdam-run. Bjrn Hato then walked and with two outs, a wild pitch put runners on second and third base. Next, then bases were loaded when Jesse Aussems walked, followed by another walk for Percy Isenia, which led to a run and marked the end for Meuris. Jeroen de Haas took over, then saw an error being made on a force play-grounder by Bas de Jong, which would have been the third out. Instead, a run was scored and the bases remained loaded. De Haas, who pitched four seasons in Rookie League/Single-A Short Season for the Seattle Mariners (2008-2011) then gave up a single to pinch-hitter Raoell Kortstam, which was followed by an outfield-error, clearing the bases and bringing in three runs. Kortstam tried to advance to third base himself, but was thrown out there to end the inning.

UVV collected only three basehits in five innings off of veteran righthander Rob Cordemans, who struckout nine batters and earned his league-leading fifth win of the season. One of the hits Cordemans gave up was a lead-off single by Nick Peels in the third inning, who made his big league-debut and hit a basehit in his first at bat. Ben Grover pitched the final two innings and held UVV hitless.
