Optica International roared back from a 1-0 finals deficit to knot the series at 1-1 with a resounding 10-3 victory over Phil Stein Sox on Thursday night, setting up a deciding Game 3 for the Jerusalem Softball League championship on Sunday night at Kibbutz Gezer.
OI enjoyed a total team effort getting contributions from all ten of their starters.
Veteran Pitcher Danny Gewirtz had the PS hitters tied up all evening allowing only six hits and one earned run in possibly his strongest outing of the season.
OI also had a very balanced offensive attack with most of their starters getting at least two hits.
Gewirtz is optimistic about his team’s chance in Sunday’s finale. “If we play the way have all year, there is no reason for us not to win our second championship in a row,” he noted. If OI does win on Sunday night it would be the second year in a row they have come back from a 1-0 deficit in the three-game finals championship series.
