The Hawks spoils Flanegin's record-setting game
HOOFDDORP / VLEUTEN / BUSSUM / ROTTERDAM (Neth.) - D Flanegin played in his 692nd big league-game for Vaessen Pioniers on Sunday to become the recordholder for most big league-games played for one club. But the recordsetting game of the 41-year old Flanegin was spoiled by opponent Mampaey The Hawks, which handed Pioniers an unexpected 3-1 loss to end an 8-game losing streak.

Playing at home, Pioniers trailed 2-0 after the first inning when The Hawks scored on a grounder and single. A third run was added in the next at bat on a sac-fly. Pioniers collected only five basehits off of Elton Koeiman, who went the distance to lead The Hawks to a 3-1 victory.

At Vleuten, L&D Amsterdam Pirates trailed 1-0 vs. UVV when Kenny Berkenbosch homered in the fifth inning. A wild pitch and basesloaded walk later made it 3-1.

At Bussum, Corendon Kinheim trailed 1-0 after five inning vs. Mr. Cocker HCAW, then came alongside in the sixth on a single by Jeffrey Arends. A single by Ren Cremer and an error made it 3-1 in favor of Kinheim in the seventh inning.

At Rotterdam, DOOR Neptunus won 8-6 vs. ADO Lakers. In this game, the two teams scored more runs (14) than in the other three games combined (12), which all ended with a 3-1 score. Trailing 7-2, ADO Lakers had a 4-run rally in the seventh inning, highlighted by a 2-run double by Nurison Leonora. But Neptunus added an insurance run moments later on a basesloaded walk.

Vaessen Pioniers vs. Mampaey The Hawks
At Hoofddorp, Mampaey The Hawks surprised by winning 3-1 vs. Vaessen Pioniers to avoid another sweep and end an 8-game losing streak. The loss spoiled the recordsetting game of D Flanegin, who played in his 692nd big league-game for Pioniers. With this, the 41-year old Flanegin became the recordholder for most games played for only one club in a big league-career. Flanegin took over the record of Jurjan Koenen, who played in 691 games for Mr. Cocker HCAW. In his recordsetting game, Flanegin returned to his familiar position at first base and went 0-for-3 with a walk.

Despite the rain, The Hawks struck early in the game and led 3-0 after two innings. Veteran pitcher Elton Koeiman silenced the Pionier-offense and gave up only five basehits in his second consecutive complete game. A week ago, Koeiman also went the distance against L&D Amsterdam Pirates, but then ended up empty-handed.

Pioniers changed its starting rotation for this series, as opposed to the earlier series of this season. Mika de Lincel, who was the Game 1 starter so far, didn't pitch in this series, due to a sore shoulder. Josh Rickards and Kevin Miner, who started Game 2 and 3 respectively so far, were moved up, while Dennis Buring started today's game. This was Buring's eighth appearance of the season, but his first start since May 22, 2012 when he was the losing pitcher against L&D Amsterdam Pirates.

Buring ran into problems right away in the first at bat. He gave up lead-off singles to Shurendell Borgschot and Friso Arkenbout, who then both advanced on a passed ball. After a flyout, a grounder by Frans van den Heuvel gave The Hawks its first run. A following single by Bob de Bruijn then made it 2-0. The bases then got loaded when Berend Ruben walked and Gregory Trinidad was hit by a pitch, but Buring avoided more runs when next batter Coen Merkx grounded out, leaving the bases loaded.

The Hawks added its third run in the second inning. Urving Kemp led off with a single, moved on a sac-bunt and a single, then scored on a sac-fly by Erwin Bonis.

In the third inning, The Hawks again reached base twice, which brought in Swen Huijer as reliever for Buring. The tall former professional pitcher held The Hawks scoreless through the sixth inning. The team from Dordrecht then appeared to add another run in the seventh inning. Arkenhout led off with a walk and De Bruijn singled with two outs. Hereafter, Bayron Cornelissen took over for Huijer and saw the bases being loaded when no out was made on a force play-grounder to third by Berend Ruben. But The Hawks left the bases loaded when a flyout followed.

Pioniers reached base several times, but was unable to move the runners around. In the first inning, lead-off hitter Zerzinho Croes reached on an error, but injured himself and was replaced by a pinch-runner, who stranded on second base. After leaving another runner on second base in the second inning, Pioniers scored its lone run in the third at bat. With two outs, Phil Ortez walked and scored on a double by Danny Rombley, who himself was thrown out when he tried to stretch it into a triple.

In the fourth, Pioniers got two runners on with two outs when Mark-Jan Moorman singled and D Flanegin walked, but both were left behind. Two more batters reached base with two outs in the seventh inning, but they also stranded. Pioniers leads the league with 136 runners left behind on base.

UVV vs. L&D Amsterdam Pirates
At Vleuten, L&D Amsterdam Pirates trailed 1-0 after four innings, but then came alongside and went on to win 3-1 against UVV.

Starting pitchers Jos de Jong (Pirates) and Chris Mezger (UVV) held each other in balance in the first five innings. Both gave up four hits in this period, but De Jong needed more pitches, as he got behind in the count several times. But Mezger's total pitches grew in the sixth and seventh inning, while De Jong's total dropped after the third inning.

Pirates threatened to open the score in the first inning when Bjrn Hato and Jesse Aussems singled with one out, but both were left behind. UVV, which left a runner on second base in the second inning, opened the score in the third inning. With one out, Brennan Nijhof doubled and advanced on a grounder by Norbert Jongerius, then scored when an error was made on a grounder by Rossini Frolijk.

In the fourth inning, it started to rain and that became somewhat heavier when the fifth inning began. But despite the rain, Kenny Berkenbosch drilled a 2-1 pitch of Mezger into rightfield for a lead-off homerun in the fifth inning to tie the score.

UVV left four runners behind from the second inning on, including two in the fifth at bat, then Amsterdam took charge of the game in the sixth. With two outs, Jesse Aussems reached on an error, then advanced to third base on a single by Percy Isenia. A wild pitch then gave Amsterdam a 2-1 lead and that was enough.

UVV stranded two more runners in the bottom of the sixth inning. Ferd van Stekelenburg led off with a single and moved on sac-bunt, followed by an intentional pass. Hereafter, Ben Grover took over the pitching for Jos de Jong and got a force play-grounder and third-out grounder to get out of the inning.

Amsterdam then added an insurance run in the seventh inning, which also had a rare situation. Kenny Berkenbosch led off with a single and Bas Nooij followed with a double. With one out, Berkenbosch got into a run-down on a comeback-grounder to pitcher Chris Mezger by Roelie Henrique. Berkenbosch returned safely to third base, but Nooij also had arrived there during the run-down, while Henrique had advanced to second base. And so, both runners were tagged, resulting in Nooij being called out, as Berkenbosch was the runner that had the right to be on the base. The bases then got loaded when Michael Duursma walked, then a following walk for Bjrn Hato led to a run and a pitching change. Former Pirate-pitcher Jerremyh Angela took over and got a grounder from Jesse Aussems that left the bases loaded and ended the inning.

UVV left a runner in the eighth off of Daan Hendrix, then Jurrian Koks threw the ninth inning for Pirates, struckout the side and earned his fifth save.

Mr. Cocker HCAW vs. Corendon Kinheim
At Bussum, Mr. Cocker HCAW held Corendon Kinheim scoreless for five innings, while leading 1-0, but a possible surprise win ended from the sixth inning on. Kinheim came alongside and won 3-1.

Ivn Granados, who until now was the Game 2 starter in HCAW's rotation, now started today in Game 3, changing places with the announced starter Kaj Timmermans, who began Game 2. The lefthander held Kinheim to only four hits in the first five innings and survived a possible threat in the fifth inning. With one out, Rachid Engelhardt singled and stole second base with two outs, then Remco Draijer walked, but Granados then ended the at bat by striking out Ren Cremer.

In the first inning, HCAW had taken an 1-0 lead off of Nick Veltkamp, but could have scored more runs. HCAW got the bases loaded when Dillon True led off with a walk and Jasper Keijzer and Jesus Latte followed with singles. But Kinheim then turned a double play on a grounder by Linoy Croes, which led to the run. The inning ended when next hitter Kevin Nieveld lined out. In the second inning, HCAW got a runner on third base, but failed to score, stranding two runners.

The game then started to turn Kinheim's way from the third inning on. Veltkamp retired nine of the ten batters he faced in the third through fifth inning, then Kinheim came alongside in the sixth. With one out, Mervin Gario singled and stole second base. With two outs, he scored the tying run on a single by Jeffrey Arends.

Kinheim then took a 3-1 lead in the seventh at bat off of new pitcher Leon Elshof when the HCAW-defense committed two errors. With one out, Niels van Weert reached on an error, moved on a grounder, then put Kinheim ahead by scoring on a single by Ren Cremer. Next, Dirk van 't Klooster lined a single down the rightfield-line. Cremer raced towards home on the hit and in the end was safe when the catcher lost control of the ball after a throw to make it 3-1.

HCAW got a new scoring opportunity in the eighth inning off of reliever Pim Walsma. With one out, Barry Mastenbroek singled and advanced on a wild pitch, then Dillon True walked. A bunt-single by Jasper Keijzer then loaded the bases, but Walsma followed with a strikeout, then a grounder ended the at bat.
