In local fast-pitch softball action, Philip Stein’s Sox notched another triumph last week, topping the Vets 17-7.

A back and forth game through five inning, PS added 7 more runs in their last two at bats to coast to the victory. For the Sox, both Yoni Shwartz and Dani Harow each had three hits, three RBIs and three runs, while pitcher Noam Zwillig picked up his fifth win of the season.

In other action, the Twisters – led by Rani Bender, who came up with a few great catches and a number of big hits – came away with a 14-9 conquest of Cerveceros in the first game of a doubleheader.

Cerveceros avenged the loss in the second game as its potent offense came to life and claimed a 19-4 win in a match that was called in the fourth inning.

The split of the two games ensures that the rest of the season will be close and competitive. There are three teams fighting for two playoff positions in the B League: The Twisters (8-2), the Sox (5-2-1) and Cerveceros (6-3-1). The Twisters and Sox play this week in a game that will have implications on who will make it to the final playoff series in which one team will be promoted to the A League.
