In the Israel Baseball Premier League’s opening playoff game, Jerusalem beat Tel Aviv 4-1 behind a complete game one-hitter hurled by Senior National Team ace, Orr Gottlieb.
Gottlieb held the Comrades hitless through seven innings, and was helped out by shortstop Ilan Klein’s spearing Dan Rothem’s one-hop smash, but the bid was eventually broken up on an infield single.
The game was knotted at 1-1 in the fifth inning, until rookie Yehuda Joffe lined a single to leftfield that drove in two Jerusalem runs.
The Reds later added another run following Yoni Alter’s triple to the leftfield gap.
With the win, Jerusalem advances to the championship play-off series next week against the winner of the Ra’anana-Modi’in single elimination game, scheduled for Wednesday night. Golf: Mondays Tour returns to Ga’ash
