In Bologna it was San Marino that was able to get back on track with the 5-4 victory over UnipolSai Bologna. The win was picked up by Andrea Pizziconi who tossed up an impressive 5.2 innings on the bump allowing just 3 runs (1 earned) against a very tough Bologna lineup. On the backend it was D’Amico (1.2 ip, 1 h, 2 bb, 0 r) that earned the save in relief of Junior Oberto who pitched 1.2 innings in relief of Pizziconi. On the other side of the diamond De Santis suffered the loss after allowing 5 runs between the 3rd and 4th. In the box both Duran and Chiarini picked up 2 hits apiece, while once again Duran and this time Ramos drove in 2 runs apiece… accounting for 4 of the 5 runs that San Marino scored on the game. Next week San Marino will be locked up in another tough home-away two game set with the Rimini Pirates, while Bologna will be welcoming in Nettuno2 for a two game series.
