Gambedotti shines in Scotland’s second win of the tournament.
Federico Gambedotti would have had the perfect game through 4 immaculate innings had it not been for one minute meaning an extra inning would be played. The Ace from Aberdeen (via Turin, Italy) threw a perfect game through 4 innings. A solid defence behind him and despite a tough batting line up infront of him “Freddy” lit up the tournament and the radar gun in this game. His only bloops were a walk in the 5th inning to the lead off batter and a base runner who reached on error on 2 outs. He ended the game with strikeout number 7.
Meanwhile on the offence, Gambedotti got Scotland started with a lead off walk in the first and was speeding around the bases to earn the first run of the game despite a quiet batting start. The second inning is where the Scottish offence woke up, plating 3 runs in the 2nd. Euan Shields batted in by a Sam Davidson double, who was then batted on a double from Xander Harrison. Dunn’s single scored Harrison before the final out was recorded. Ren Quantrill scored the sole run in the third inning and then a further 2 runs were plated in the bottom of the 4th courtesy of a pinch hit double from Andrew Wilson. Gambedotti and Dunn the runners.
This was a dominant performance from Scotland and the team were on a high going into the days final fixture against the tournament hosts
