Goodbye dreams of glory. Nettuno 1945 loses to the “Borghese” against Godo (3-6) and San Marino flies to the final with one round to spare, securing pool B of the second phase, the one that led to the championship challenge. The difference is now unbridgeable, the “double” of the Titans against Macerata also invalidates the possible “sweep” of Guglielmo Trinci’s team in the last round scheduled in Serravalle next weekend.
Neptune in the afternoon’s race had shown his power, going up to 9-0 and suffering the three points of the guests in the final. Match characterized by home runs: Scerrato (from 1) and Lino Correa (from 2) to the sixth inning, Meriggi (from 1) to the 7th and Albert from (from 2) to the 9th for the guests. Pecci (winner) concedes just four hits, the loser is Galeotti. In the aforementioned Scerrato (2 out of 3) and Correa (2 out of 4) Mazzanti (3 out of 4) should also be underlined
In the evening race, 10 valid scores are not enough for the hosts who lose due to the false start of Liguori who goes down after just 0.2 shots. The Ravenna players score 5 points per first, one per second and to bring home a prestigious result they only need 4 valid ones, for the rest they thank the bases on ball received.
San Marino without problems, in the meantime, in Macerata. After the victory on Friday (5-2) in which the 2 out of 4 stands out with a home run by Tromp, the second game is without history and ends before the limit (14-2). In race 1 Garbella won, Mazzocchi saved, Quattrini lost. The two is in balance until the third, then the hitters of the “titans” wake up and between the seventh and eighth closes the game. Even 8 points scored in the inning which will also be the last of the game, in which there is also the grand slam of Sechopoulos who closes in the box at 3 out of 5. Winning pitcher Quevede, loser Andueza.
