In the Israel Softball Association Babe Gillett Memorial Fall Tournament last week, the Tigers edged the Brewers 4-3. Shimshon Hi Tech rolled over Crazy Richard 15-5, and the Galil Twisters defeated the Dawgs 11-6. The tournament now takes a week off for Succot. On Thursday, Tigers pitcher Goose Gillett was brilliant, striking out eight Brewers and allowing only three runs on two over-the-fence home runs by Julio Miraval in a 4-3 win. The Brewers' Yehezkel Ganz pitched well, striking out five Tigers, but the offense behind him struggled. The Tigers scored on a triple from Shlomi Mor Haim, a two-run single by Gilad Lazar, and an error. The play of the game was a diving stab of a line drive by Tigers shortstop Matt Gardner. On Tuesday, Shimshon Hi Tech earned an easy 15-5 victory over Crazy Richard, with contributions from starting pitcher Sholom Menorah, who continued both his hot pitching and his hot hitting (a pair of doubles, and two RBIs); relief pitcher Gadi Bossin, who struck out two in 2 2 /3 innings; Stu Shrader (four hits, including two triples) and rookie third baseman Yisrael Dahan, who tripled, bunted for a single and started a third-to-second double play. Itzik Levy and Seth Gildenblatt each singled and doubled for Crazy Richard, with the latter chipping in two RBIs, and 52-year old David Leishman stole his first base in more than a decade. On Wednesday, the undefeated Galil Twisters started 15-year-old Kobi Daya against the winless Dawgs, who countered with Aaron Kurtz on the mound. The Twisters scored three in the first on walks and wild pitches, but the Dawgs answered with six in the second on an RBI single by Michael Marunov, an RBI groundout by Shmuel Goldstein and two errors. Bill Arscott relieved Daya in the third and shut out the Dawgs on three hits for the final three innings while the Twisters mounted a comeback. Tim Cummings tied the game with a two-run single in the third and later added an RBI single in the five-run fifth, two of the five hits by the northerners, who capitalized on 11 walks and three hit-bypitches by the hard-throwing Kurtz. Tomer Molovinsky scored three for the Twisters, and shortstop Josh Friedman ended the game with a diving stab of a grounder to get the force out at second.
