He made absolutely no discounts to the ‘cousins’, San Marino, peremptorily scoring against Godo in the first two games staged on the Serravalle diamond, with a match played last night in the spotlight (8-1 , 12-0 the partial eloque in favor of the titans who, thanks also to Parma’s slip with Turin, consolidate their leadership in group A1 of the Poule Scudetto). The derby with the Goths opens immediately with a clear affirmation of the Italian champions, in a match that remains in balance just a couple of innings. It is precisely in the second round that the hosts begin to ‘move’ the score: with the pillows loaded and two eliminated, Epifano’s punctual single for the 2-0. A third start was the reaction of the ‘Ravenna people’.
Quevedo loses control for a moment by conceding two bases, then Monari’s hit allows his team to halve the disadvantage (2-1). This semblance of uncertainty dissolves shortly thereafter, titans who continuously touch Garcia del Toro (single by Celli, double by Angulo for 3-1, another single by Morresi to sculpt the 4-1) and thus widen the gap. It is an evening in which the San Marino line-up is on the ball and for Godo there is nothing to do. Another point in the fourth assault (Angulo’s pbc), three in the fifth (Pieternella’s double for the 6-1, Batista’s sprint and Epifano’s double for the final 8-1). Twelve woods (Morresi 22, Angulo and Epifano 23) against the three of the opponents, zero errors for both teams. On the platform the ‘winner’ is Quevedo (5 ‘k’ and a pgl in 4 rounds), later taken over by Rienzo and Kourtis, who wets his return to the republic with 3 strike-outs in the seventh round. A dominated garauno is then followed by a one-way garadue.
Only one statistical comparison, somewhat enlightening: San Marino hit 15 valid and kept the defensive score immaculate, for Godo just two woods and as many errors. Only the first inning ends 0-0, but at the end of the quarter the titans have already closed the practice (11-0 the partial, with the former Galeotti who remained on the mountain only for three rounds, 7 pgls). In the San Marino team there is still a ‘clear path’ for Morresi, 33 in the box with a double and the beauty of 4 points pushed home. Batista (34) is also very continuous, 23 for Ferrini and Leonora. On the mountain the ‘winner’ is Quattrini, later taken over by Peluso.
