The Dimona Mean Judeans defeated the Galil "Golan Plastic Products" Twisters 16-6 and Penticon downed Ziontours 19-4 in six innings in the first round of the Israel Softball Association playoffs on Sunday night. The first game at Baptist Village near Petah Tikva featured Dimona, the top A Division team, against the Twisters, the winners of the B Division who defeated the A Division's Tigers for a spot in the playoffs. Dimona jumped out to a 9-0 lead in the first off pitcher Yosi Ajzenwaser, taking advantage of three walks, two errors and Yigahl Ben Israel's key three-run homer. The Twisters settled down and started hitting Dimona pitcher Yaron Ben-Israel, banging out 14, three each by Moshe Hyde and Eitan Milgram, who tripled, but Yaron got the big outs when he needed them, stranding 10 Twisters on base and never allowing the Galileans to get closer than five runs. For Dimona, Shlomo Ben-Israel was 4-for-4 with three runs, Yigal had three hits and Elyaheed Ben-Israel and Benkie Ben-Israel each tripled. The second game of each best-of-three series are scheduled for 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Tuesday at Baptist Village.
