Behind a dominating 21 hit attack, Italy had no problems beating an unlucky french side. Back-to-back-Homeruns from Federico Celli and Sebastiano Poma put Italy in front 3:0 in the bottom of the third Inning. France managed to get two runs back due to a Homerun from Andy Paz. Italy scored its fourth run just before an hour long rain delay. When play resumed only one team took action: Italy wasted no time in increasing its lead. The ten time European Champs scored five more runs to make it 9:2 by the sixth Inning. It did not matter which french pitcher took the mount, the italian batters put good wood on the ball. Seven more times an italian runner crossed homeplate, the final score of 16:2 was surely unexpected. Italian Leftielder Sebastiano Poma was the MVP of the match with six Hits, five RBI and four Runs scored. French Starter Kenio Perez took the loss, Italys Michael Johnson made the most of his 2.1 Inning relief work by securing himself the Win.
