HCAW equals record; Three Friday-games cancelled
THE HAGUE / ROTTERDAM / BUSSUM / VLEUTEN (Neth.) - Three of the four make-up games scheduled for tonight (Friday, May 17) were cancelled again due to rain. In the afternoon, the playing sites in The Hague and Rotterdam were declared unplayable, resulting in the cancellation of the games between ADO Lakers and Vaessen Pioniers in The Hague and DOOR Neptunus and Corendon Kinheim in Rotterdam. On Thursday, these two games also were the first to be postponed. While Monday, May 20 (which is Whit Monday) appears to be available as a game-day (as it is a holiday), the three cancelled games instead were re-scheduled for Tuesday-evening, May 21, starting at 7:30 PM.

Around 6 PM, the other two games were still on schedule, but following the pattern of Thursday, the game between UVV and Mampaey The Hawks, to be played in Vleuten, was the third game to be cancelled.

At 7:15 PM, the game between Mr. Cocker HCAW and L&D Amsterdam Pirates in Bussum was still on schedule, but its starting time was postponed from 7:30 to 8 PM. The game indeed went underway around 8 PM and so, when five complete innings were played to make it an official game, HCAW tied an all-time record. Tonight's game is HCAW's 1629th in the highest division, tying the record of Sparta(-Feyenoord), which last season relegated from the big league. HCAW's next game will mark a new record for most games played in the highest division.

Amsterdam shutout HCAW 7-0 to win its 10th game in a row, while HCAW suffered its fourth consecutive loss.

Amsterdam opened the score with two runs in the third inning off of Tony Kreisel, who made his first start of the season for HCAW. Björn Hato led off with a single, advanced on a grounder by Michael Duursma and scored on a following double by Jesse Aussems. A missed fly ball in leftfield enabled Aussems to score the next run.

In the fourth inning, Amsterdam added a run when Kenny Berkenbosch led off with a walk, stole second base and scored on a 2-out single by Rashid Gerard. Berkenbosch then also accounted for the next run when he hit a homerun with one out in the sixth at bat.

Pirates scored two more runs in the seventh inning off of new pitcher Bob Klarenbeek. With one out, Duursma reached on an error, then Aussems walked. After a double-steal, Duursma scored on a sac-fly by Percy Isenia, then Bas de Jong followed with an RBI-double to make it 6-0.

The seventh Amsterdam-run was scored in the ninth inning. Gerard then led off with a single, moved on a grounder by Aussems and scored on a 2-out single by Isenia.

Amsterdam-starter Rob Cordemans threw seven innings in which he struckout eight batters and gave up only two basehits to win his sixth game of the season. The veteran righthander took a No-Hitter into the fifth inning, but then Jesus Latte led off with a single. Cordemans allowed only three batters to reach base. Besides the two basehits, the third batter reached on an error. Nick Stuifbergen pitched the final two innings for Pirates, struckout three and held HCAW hitless.
