Unipol Bologna took the lead in the standings with a win over host T&A San Marino on Thursday night. The lone Belgian entry dropped to 0-2 with another big loss.

Paderborn Untouchables 2, L&D Amsterdam 6

Paderborn jumped out on top 2-0 in the top of the first on a Daniel Hinz (2-for-4) 2-run home run, but that is all they would get as the Dutch pitchers shut them down the rest of the way allowing only 2 more hits over the next 8 innings.

Percy Isenia led the Pirates offensively going 3-for-4 with a pair of RBI. Roeland Henrique hit a solo home run, and Jos de Jong pitched a complete game to pick up the win.

After the first two days, both teams records sit at 1-1.

Hoboken Pioneers 0, Draci Brno 10 (7)

The Czech power Draci Brno dominated the Belgian entry with a 10-0 win to drop Hoboken to 0-2.

Draci Brno scored 3 runs in 3 different innings including the 7th to end the game with the mercy rule. Brno pounded out 9 hits against the Pioneers pitching, but they were also helped by Hoboken’s 5 errors.

Martin Vesely led the offensive attack going 2-for-4 with 2 RBI. Alex Derhak walked twice and scored 2 runs. Martin Schneider pitched a complete game allowing only 4 hits while striking out 7.

John Anderson took the loss for Hoboken allowing 10 runs (5 earned) on 8 hits and 4 walks.

Unipol Bologna 8, T&A San Marino 1

The game was a pitching duel for the first 5 innings as neither team could get a runner home. Then in the top of the 6th, Bologna took the lead with a 4 spot.

The big blow in the 6th was a 3-run home run by Mark Castellitto who finished the game going 3-for-5 with 4 RBI and 2 home runs. Juan Carlos Infante also homered for Bologna going 3-for-5.
