I deleted the original thread by accident, so here is another start.
After games vs Canada U18 (17-5 win and 8-3 win), Detroit Tigers (1-3 loss), the Dutch squad took on the Pittsburgh Pirates yesterday. The Pirates delegation was full of (former) Major Leaguers. This resulted in a 6-0 lead for Pittsburgh after the second inning.
In the remainder of the game, the Pirates scored two more runs and the Dutch managed to score two runs, both on sac flies. In the ninth, the Dutch managed to load the bases, but could not cash in. Notable feat: Dutch Antillian player Shairon Martis pitched the final inning vs his former team mates. Martis fanned three, walked two and allowed one basehit.
