On September 14, 2008 — In the first Final Four, Danesi Nettuno beats T&A San Marino 3 – 2 to win the 2008 European Cup Final Four. The win is revenge for Nettuno, which lost the Italian Series to San Marino. Tiago da Silva turns in a good start, allowing 1 run in 7 innings, but his bullpen fails to hold the lead. Ramon Tavarez drives in 2 and wins MVP honors. Former major leaguer Giovanni Carrara saves the game but gives San Marino a chance with two hits.
