From BR Bullpen

Jump to: navigation, search

The 2014 European Cup ran in Brno and Hoofddorp in June 2014 with a final phase in August. In an unusual twist, no Spanish teams qualified for this European Cup, with two apiece from Italy, Germany, France, the Netherlands and Czech Republic and one from each San Marino and the Ukraine. Former major leaguers to appear were Alex Romero, Mike Ekstrom and Enrique Gonzalez (all Rimini) and Jesús Delgado and Darwin Cubillan (both San Marino) while former Cuban national team players Rolando Meriño and Ciro Silvino Licea played for Sénart.

One sour note for Rimini came in late July when pitcher Sandy Patrone was suspended for a banned substance resulting from a test taken this day. Patrone claimed it was due to a medication he was taking for an injury and that he had been tested for numerous international competitions in the past.

  • ASD Rimini 5, T&A San Marino 4. Rimini tied the best-of-3 finals with one big inning. San Marino got on the board first, scoring against Enorbel Márquez in the second on a single by 1B Joe Mazzuca, a walk to SS Joe Persichina, a two-out wild pitch and a passed ball by C Pierangelo Cit. In the top of the 4th, Rimini came back and then some. SS Jack Santora drew a leadoff walk from Anthony Capra. CF Leonardo Zileri also drew a full-count walk, then RF Alex Romero singled - an error on the play by Persichina made it 1-1. 3B Giuseppe Mazzanti doubled in Zileri and Romero and took third on the throw home, then a wild pitch made it 4-1. In the 5th, Cit and 2B Adolfo Gomez singled. Santora bunted into a Capra error then Zileri hit a sacrifice fly for a 5-1 edge. San Marino would try to scrape their way back in. In the bottom of the 6th, C Simone Albanese doubled and took third on an error by LF Lorenzo Di Fabio. CF Paul Macaluso later singled to cut it to 5-2. In the bottom of the 8th, José Escalona relieved Márquez and allowed a hit to LF Lorenzo Avagnina. Macaluso grounded to Escalona, who fired to second for the force, but DH Jairo Ramos Gizzi and Mazzuca followed with singles for a 5-3 game. In the bottom of the 9th, RF Nicholas Morreale drew a leadoff walk from Escalona. 3B Luca Pulzetti was plunked to put the potential tying run aboard. Roberto Corradini relieved and Albanese laid down a sacrifice. Avagnina was intentionally walked, putting the potential winning run on. PH Junior Guerra singled in a run to make it 5-4. Ramos Gizzi hit a fly to Zileri in center and Zileri's throw home beat Pulzetti to the plate for a dramatic ending.
