Salvino Bags Fourth PBA Title
Carmen Salvino proved he still was "on the ball" with a 90-pin victory over Billy Hardwick in the final rundown of the Professional Bowlers Association $24,500 Rockford, Ill. Coca-Cola Open.
Salvino made his big move in the final 16 games of the match-play competition.
After finishing in the eighth spot of the qualifier, which was led by Darylee Cox, Salvino won 13 of his 16 matches to easily outdistance the other contenders.
This was Salvino's second PBA title of the year, he won the opener at Jacksonville, and his fourth overall. Hardwick toppled 8483 pins but won only 10 of his 16 games in the finals.
