After the victorious away match against UnipolSai Bologna, already mathematically qualified for the next phase of the championship, in the advance to Padua with a 10-0 round, all the other teams take the field on Saturday and Sunday for the seventh day of Serie A. Except Big Mat Bsc Grosseto and Academy of Nettuno, given that the two races on Sunday 15 May have been postponed, as required by the Fibs Race Behavior Protocol, as some cases of positive Covid-19 have been found in one of the two teams and will be recovered Sunday 22 May (race one at 10 am and race two at 3 pm, again at the Scarpelli stadium in Grosseto).
The other Maremma, the Bbc Grosseto Spirulina Becagli, will be engaged on Saturday at 3.30 pm and at 8.30 pm on the Hotsand Macerata diamond. The red and white, first in the standings in group D and sure to participate from the championship title, are looking for at least a victory on the field of the Marche that allows them to stay in the lead. And this allows you to be part of a more affordable group than what you would get by finishing second. Jairo Ramos’ boys are morally ready for this challenging duel, which they will play without receiver Yuri Sarrocco. He will be replaced by Niccolò Biscontri and Nicholas Fancellu. The rotation of this first part of the season has been confirmed, with Federico Cozzolino and Luis Gonzalez starting; Oberto, Hidalgo, Bulfone and Noguera reliefs. Macerata will rely on Rodriguez Mejas and Lopez. Previous releases have shown a growing line-up, reaching 318, with Ambrosino (600), Herrera (518) and Barcelan (448), credited with the best batting averages.
Also away the Itas Mutua Baseball Softball Club Rovigo which will be on stage in Cervignano. The double challenge scheduled for Sunday, race one at 11 and race two at 15, could allow the rossoblù to secure third place in Group B and ensure an easier path in the following summer phase. In fact, a draw would be enough to secure the place behind the leaders Fortitudo Bologna and the second force of the Collecchio group. First of all, it would be a prestigious result for the Polesans and a great confidence boost for the rest of the championship. Closing third in the group stage, among other things with a respectable roadmap, would place Itas Mutua among the top ten Italian teams in the virtual ranking of the first segment of the season. Not only. As mentioned, difficult opponents would also be avoided in the subsequent phase of the tournament, as well as particularly demanding trips from a mileage and logistical point of view. In short, there are really many reasons to face the trip to the field of the Sultan Allestimenti Navali Cervignano with the utmost concentration. However, coach Soto Diaz will have to do without Frigato, who was out for about a month due to a muscle problem. Work continues, however, on the possible recoveries of Pizzoli and Bernardi. Crepaldi is also to be deployed with caution, not yet in top condition. The management of numerous injuries will be a fundamental aspect in the next decisive months.
In group C, San Marino Baseball travels to Parma, where they will find the Crocetta. It will be played on Saturday 14 May, with matches scheduled at 4pm and 8.30pm. Crocetta has played a championship so far that has brought him to the limits of qualifying for the Poule Scudetto. With 8 wins and 4 defeats, the Emilian team is currently fourth in group C but can no longer reach the second position mathematically. On the mountain the most used starters were Consuegra Almanza (2-1, 3.00), Zanchi (3-1, 1.50) and Bigliardi (1-1, 2.95), but also watch out for Guerra Ceballos (1-1, 2.30) and Dallatan (1-0, 2.81). In the box, the averages of Dentoni (393) and Piazza (386) are more than flattering, while Scala (317) and Alfinito (308) also do well. San Marino, which will still be without Epifano, wants to grow in shape. Doriano Bindi says about him on the state of health of the team: “Well, apart from Epifano. He will try again next week, but he is currently out. Crocetta is a young, good team that plays good baseball. We must face these two matches well in order to better prepare ourselves for the challenges of the coming weeks. Andrè Rienzo? This is a pitcher whose career speaks for itself. He has a large repertoire and is very controlled. It is clear that he is still not at 100%, but in the matches that will be worth he will be able to give us a big hand. The rotation will continue with Quattrini and Quevedo, who performed well like all the pitchers used last week, 5 hits suffered in two games. We want to play these two games with Crocetta with maximum concentration “.
Also in group C, double home match for Mediolanum New Rimini which on Saturday at 15.00 and 20.00 will face Sala Baganza at the municipal stadium. It is an opportunity for Mike Romano’s team to return to victory, three out of twelve matches so far, against an opponent, from a very young roster, who has never managed to hit it up to now and has just returned from a double home defeat with Modena ( 6-3 and 6-1). The last day of the preliminary phase is also scheduled for next weekend. At the end, the groups will be established in which the teams that do not enter the 8 that will go towards the final scudetto (the first two of each group) will play for salvation. Improving the current sixth position, with a race late from Longbridge Bologna, is the other goal of the last round inside.
