Race 1 is from Parmaclima. The first match of the final triptych of Poule Scudetto ends 3-2, a match that has Montilla as winner and Rienzo loser. San Marino takes the lead with two points in the first two innings (homer by Celli at the start and two doubles by Leonora and Pulzetti at 2nd), with Parmaclima shortening to 2nd with Mineo’s homer in a second Pieternella and Quevedo make males. To turn the match is another home run, the two-point one by Astorri in 4th.
The start of the match is all for the Italian Champions, who immediately score in 1st place thanks to Federico Celli’s home run in the center. Solitary for him and 1-0 on the scoreboard. At the 2nd, here is the doubling in the sign of two deep blows, those of Dudley Leonora and Luca Pulzetti, two doubles that mean 2-0 San Marino.
In the lower part of the 2nd here are a couple of moments in which the game turns. The first is represented by the 1-2 home run to the right of Mineo, with Pieternella who, in an attempt to follow the ball, crashes into the fences and hurts his shoulder (in place of him Di Fabio). Soon after Gonzalez hit a single, while Astorri was eliminated in the pot. On the third goal, however, Quevedo feels a physical problem and comes out at the end of the inning.
At the 3rd attack San Marino Baseball fails to capitalize with two men on base, while in the lower part André Rienzo debuts with three quick outs including two K. At 4th Parmaclima overtakes with a round of bat. After the quick eliminations of Joseph and Mineo, Rienzo is touched by Gonzalez’s single and then by Astorri’s home run. In a moment the game is overturned: 3-2 for Parma. The home team, on the wings of enthusiasm, fills the bases (error on Rodriguez, singles by Talevi and Poma), with Koutsoyanopulos then representing the out (F8) who leaves the game pending.
The 5th is also an inning in which attacks come close to scoring. San Marino leaves two men on base (Angulo hit and base on Lino, then Ustariz goes strikeout), while Parma finds himself with men on the corners and two eliminated, but on the base ball in Astorri Lino is very good at catching Joseph off base in third.
On the 6th delicious occasion. Immediately two outs, then Epifano manages to reach the first on a crazy strikeout launch. After him, a nice hit on the right by Luca Pulzetti and base ball for Ferrini. Full bases, with Celli hitting a bouncy on the third but unable to reach the first for a few centimeters.
At the 7th comes a valid from Ustariz with two outs, but nothing more. Parmaclima wins 3-2 game 1.
