In the end, the Juventus defensive errors on the scorer’s roster will be 5, but certainly many more technical ones, with little aggression in defense in trying to recover the balls.
MONTEFIASCONE – Here comes the fifth consecutive defeat for Estra Siena BC, this time with Wiplanet Montefiascone and again for manifest: 14 to 2 the final, also due to a defense that fails to adequately support the three pitchers employed (Osti, departing, and the reliefs Castillejos and Alejandro Fernandez Matos) to which nothing can be reproached.
In the end, the defensive errors of the bianconeri on the scorer’s roster will be 5, but certainly many more technical ones, with little aggression in defense in trying to recover the balls (both to the exteriors and the interiors, in which the two are reported subdued rehearsals by Alejandro Ferandez Matos at shortstop and by Dario Mancini as receiver). Too bad, because the first inning – despite the unmotivated and incredible expulsion of Deurys Rodriguez (replaced by Medrano), second hitter of the upper part of the first round (expelled for having thrown the bat, not so violently, towards the dug out of the house after having ended strike out on the absurd calls of the referee Negro), and the advantage in the lower part of 2 to 0 for Montefiascone – had ended well, with a double pitcher – home game – before that had motivated the bianconeri.
In the initial part of the second round the Sienese scored a point with Pichardo, pushed home by the handsome double on the left outside of Osti, but in their attack turn Montefiascone managed to score even four, with two eliminated, also thanks to two strike outs with a missed ball by Mancini which allowed Wiplanet not only to score 3-0, but also to lengthen the innings and put the Juventus team under pressure.
The third inning went smoothly, while on 4 ‘it was Estra who scored the second point of the game with Osti (hit by the starter Badea, in second due to a shooting error by third base, in third for the second hit in the inning ( Buret) and at home thanks to Alejandro Fernandez Matos’ valid on the opposite field.
After, the dark. After Osti came down from the mountain, despite the two strike outs by Castillejos, Montefiascone scored another point with the newly entered Marianello. At 6 ‘the Juventus relief was in difficulty, so much so that, once the bases were filled following a valid, two bases balls and a hit, by Alejandro Fernandez Matos, who in any case was not in the best possible day (8 batters faced , 4 valid beats, including a double, a base ball and a strike out). In the sixth inning Montefiascone stretched, scoring another 7 points that took the game to 14 to 2.
The last Juventus attack flowed away in the worst way: the lead off Mancini arrived first on base ball, only to be caught out of the pillow by the opponent’s catcher, without trying to return. After him came the strike outs on Pichardo and Castillejos to close the match early, with a 14 to 2 for Montefiascone (and a 5 out of 5 from Faliscan third base Gomez Carrasco, author, among other things, of a triple and of a double and almost half of the valid beats of their team, 5 out of 12).
Barroso’s team will now play next Sunday at 3pm against the Brewers Roma at Scialoja.
