Pitching in relief for the Netherlands, he got lit up in the finals against Italy.


As far as I can tell, he made one previous appearance in the tournament and it was a very good start: 7 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 7 K.


Luca Panerati was outstanding for Italy: 13 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 13 K. He didn't pitch in the Reds' system this year, and I vaguely recall that they released him, which is kind of surprising. He apparently didn't pitch anywhere in the minors this year.
