Italian Pro Series: Italy is overtaken in the seventh

The Italian Pro Series 2016 concluded with the 4th straight victory for the visiting Florida Pride, and the fourth straight loss for Marina Centrone's Italian National Team.

Italy built a 2-0 lead heading into the seventh and final ining, including a fourth inning homerun by Beatrice Ricchi. Three Italian pitchers Cecchetti, Boniardi, and Ronchetti had combined for six perfect innings and had Italy three outs away from an amazing victory, that thanks to a furious rally by the Americans was not to be.

Pendley broke up the perfect game leading of the seventh with a triple to left, and following a strikeout, DiSalvatore plated the first Pride run with a single. After another single, a throwing error loaded the bases. Ziegenhirt then ended the game with a walkoff single for the 3-2 final score.
