MILAN (AP) -- Fiorentina crushed bottom club Siena 4-1 in the Tuscan derby in Serie A on Sunday.

Luca Toni headed Fiorentina in front in the 15th minute and won a penalty three minutes later when he was held back by Felipe.

Gianluca Pegolo got a hand to David Pizarro's penalty but could not stop it.

Pizarro, who had just returned from the funeral of his 32-year-old sister in Chile, wept as he celebrated, pointing to the sky.

Alberto Aquilani extended Fiorentina's lead on the stroke of halftime, tapping in Romulo's cross.

Siena got one back in the 70th through Reginaldo, before Toni scored his second.

Massimo Paci was sent off three minutes from time following a second booking to complete Siena's misery, but Aquilani blazed the resulting penalty over the crossbar.
