With the first game against the USA (played at 1:30) tonight being postponed, Italy’s first match against Canada will be in terms of the 2022 World Games in Birmingham, Alabama, USA. And it was a sensational debut, a 4-0 start before a wild reaction from the Canadians who won 4-10.
The blue start was one to remember: Anderson’s home run on the third throw to Vigna’s right, making it 1-0 immediately. Is it over? No, because Elisa Cecchetti hits a hit to left that gets her to first base, and from there Longy puts in a second home run that makes it 3-0. For a change, in the second inning Marrone, with two outs, singled to left and then found second base on a defensive error. At that point Simpson steps in as a pitcher for Anderson, But Blue makes it 4-0 with a single by Vigna that sends Marrone home.
