Another high-scoring game and shutout for Italy as they took down Poland 10-0 in four innings.

Right out of the gate, Italy put up 5 runs against Poland. Three runs easily scored in the top of the 1st, with a bases-clearing double by Andrea Filler. Guilia Longhi and Elisa Cecchetti scored two more for the Italians with a single apiece.

Andrea Filler and Guilia Longhi were not done for the day. Each came away with a 2-run homer – Longhi in the top of the 3rd, and Filler in the top of the 4th.

Ilaria Cacciamani proved to be another strong arm in the circle for Italy only allowing 3 just hits over four innings.

Raina Galbiati claimed two of Poland’s three hits against Cacciamani.

Italy remains victorious on their home fields while Poland splits 1-1. Of course it remains anybody’s game headed into high-stakes elimination play.
