SIENA, Italy -- Switzerland forward Innocent Emeghara extended his impressive start in Serie A by scoring twice Monday as Siena moved out of last place with a 3-0 win over Lazio.

The loss left Lazio tied with AC Milan in third place, 11 points behind Italian league leader Juventus.

Emeghara put Siena ahead six minutes in with a header, Alessandro Rosina doubled the lead in the 23rd and Emeghara scored again in the 61st after accelerating past defender Giuseppe Biava.

The 23-year-old Emeghara has four goals in three matches since joining Siena on loan from French club Lorient. He was born in Nigeria but plays for Switzerland's national team.

Lazio playmaker Hernanes had a dangerous free kick tipped over the bar by Siena goalkeeper Gianluca Pegolo in the 77th.
