San Marino Evens Italian Series

After losing their first two games at home to start the series San Marino has taken two on the road against Rimini to even the series at two games apiece.  Yesterday they rode the seven plus shutout innings of Tiago da Silva to win 3-0.  Seth La Fera finished the shutout to pick up the save.

The San Marino offense was led by Joe Mazzuca, who ripped two doubles.  His first double in the second inning scored the first run for San Marino.  The second run of the inning scored on a ground out.  He also led off the eighth inning with a double and eventually scored on a fly ball.

Roberto Corradini pitched well for Rimini, giving up just four hits.  The two Mazzuca doubles proved to be his undoing.  He gave up three of the four hits in the second inning, then retired the next 17 San Marino hitters.  In the eighth a Mazzuca double and a walk ended his outing.

Rimini was able to get two men on in the eighth to bring the tying run to the plate, but they fell just short.  Rimini will try to salvage their last game at home to go to San Marino next weekend up in the series three games to two.
