The game was tied 1-1 in the third inning when the Reds embarked on a threerun rally, and added three more in the fifth to insure the victory.

Alter picked up the win, while Comrades pitcher Yuli Tsypin was tagged with the loss.

Starter Josh Shulman of Tel Aviv pitched well for the first two innings, keeping the game even.

But an outfield error in the third inning led to two Jerusalem runs and opened the floodgates for the Reds, who were able to coast towards their goal of first place.

Beni Friedman scored three runs for the Reds.
