For the record, Fortitudo wins 14-3 mainly because it finds a majestic eight-point second inning, which instantly stuns any hope of Parma, submerged by three singles, three doubles and a defensive error. In the second half of the match, Gonzalez and Lampe’s home runs reaffirm the concept of superiority. Since it is played on the nine innings, the manifest is activated in the seventh..
