TEMPE, Arizona (USA) - Lefthander Scott Ronnenbergh, the latest Dutch player to turn pro, earned the first save in his short professional career on Friday.

The 18-year old Ronnenbergh, who last season made his debut in the Dutch big league playing for L&D Amsterdam Pirates, this year played for Almere Magpies, before traveling to the States and start his professional career in the Rookie League-team of the Seattle Mariners. He made his debut as a reliever on July 4 against the Giants, but that wasn't successful, as he threw only 2/3 inning, walked two batters, gave up four hits (including a homerun) and two earned runs and became the losing pitcher. He then threw two innings on July 9 vs. the Rangers and two more on July 12 vs. the Athletics, but then had to wait until today (August 6, almost a month later) to make his next appearance. He then threw the last inning vs. the Indians, struckout one, walked one and gave up no hits to earn a save.

Ronnenbergh's team in the Arizona League is currently is third place in the AZL West. At the Arizona Mariners, Ronnenbergh's teammate is pitcher Jeroen de Haas from Alkmaar, who is playing in the Rookie League since 2008.
