Pazzini's hat trick leads Milan over Bologna

Bologna, Italy (Sports Network) - Giampaolo Pazzini scored a hat trick in his debut for AC Milan to lead his new club to a 3-1 win over Bologna on Saturday in Serie A at the Stadio Renato Dall'Ara.

Pazzini joined Milan from Inter Milan in a swap for Antonio Cassano converted a penalty in the 15th minute and added two more goals in the second half, to give Milan its first win. Milan was shocked by promoted Sampdoria last week.

Milan had its first lead on the Pazzini penalty erase when Alessandro Diamanti scored for Bologna, which lost its second straight to open the season, but the new addition paid more dividends after halftime.

Pazzini scored his second goal in the 76th and completed his hat trick in the 84th with a nice redirect into the bottom right.

Torino 3, Pescara 0

Turin, Italy - Alessandro Sgrigna, Matteo Brighi and Rolando Bianchi scored as promoted Torino secured its first win of the season, 3-0 over promoted Pescara on Saturday at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino.

Pescara lost defender Christian Terlizzi to a red card in the first half, but goalkeeper Mattia Perin saved the ensuing penalty from Rolando Bianchi. Torino made up for the miss, as Sgrigna scored in the 34th.

Brighi and Bianchi added goals after halftime, as Torino ran its points total to four from two matches. Torino tied Siena, 0-0, in its first game last week.

Pescara lost its opener to Inter Milan, 3-0, and remained winless.
