In Jerusalem Post Softball League action, Philip Stein’s Sox remained unbeaten and improved to 4-0 on the season with a 22-7 triumph over Optica International in a meeting of two previously undefeated teams on Friday at Kibbutz Gezer.

The Sox used the long ball to overpower OI, scoring a pair of runs on only one hit in the bottom of the first inning and then adding five more in second, led by a three-run home run from David Tover. The Sox tacked on seven runs in the third inning before Sammy Tover belted a two-run blast in the fifth.

David Tover hit his second HR of the game, while Chaim Jacobson added a dinger as pitcher Ron Gorodetzer picked up the win, helped by 20 hits off the Sox bats.

Yoni Shwartz blasted a homer in a losing cause for OI, which fell to 4-1 a week after beating up on A4 in a 16-1 rout.

Elsewhere on Friday, the Beit Shemesh Suns came back to defeat Alan Deutsch CPA in a tight 11-10 contest.

Tzvi Herman gave the Suns a short-lived lead in the third inning with a towering home run, the Suns soon fell behind 10-6.

Rallying – and with pitcher Andre Isaacson remaining effective to avoid any more damage – the Suns chipped away and drew within one run with one inning remaining. In the bottom of the seventh, E.J. Glatt laced a double into the gap, driving in Josh Alter to tie the game. With one out and Glatt at third, pinch-hitter Darius Schwartz laced a line drive to the outfield icing the victory for the ecstatic Suns.
