An undermanned Rise-Hi squad scrapped their way to a victory in Game 1 of the modified Softball league playoffs, beating the defending champion CleanTech Warriors 13-10 at Gezer Thursday.

A few costly errors in the field got CleanTech in an early hole. They rallied to tie it at 5 in the fourth inning, but RiseHi struck back immediately in the bottom of the inning with three runs.

Chaim Jacobson tripled and Earl Harow walked. Yoni Shwartz drove in the first run of the inning with a line single, followed by by a David Bubba Kiel single. After Aaron Harow drove in another run with a sacrifice fly, catcher David Tover singled home the third run of the inning.

A two-run homer by Sammy Tover in the sixth gave Rise-Hi some much needed breathing room.

Aaron Lazor hit a towering home run for CleanTech in the top of the seventh, but it was too late by then for the Warriors.

Lazor had three hits on the evening and scored three runs.

Matt Brenner and David Fain continued their spectacular play of late for CleanTech. Brenner went 3-for-3 and Fain knocked in four runs for the Warriors.

Rise-Hi captain Yitz Atkin said after the game, “Rise Hi has probably won over 250 games over the last 20 or more years but this win has to be one of the most satisfying ever.I am very proud of this team. Everybody contributed to this gutsy win.”

Dani Harow had three hits, his father Earl had three hits and scored three runs, and Yoni Shwartz and David Kiel each had two hits for Rise-Hi. Ed Harow was again dominant, wining for the 13th time overall this season.

Game #2 is Wednesday night.
