The second-place Tel Aviv Lightning defeated the first-place Beit Shemesh Blue Sox 2-0 at Kibbutz Gezer to move within 11⁄2 games of first place on Thursday. Aaron Pribble of San Francisco won his sixth game with a complete-game shut-out, giving up two hits, striking out four and walking one. Pribble has defeated the Sox four times this season to make him the winning pitcher in half of Beit Shemesh's losses. Tigers 7, Miracle 6 The Netanya Tigers held off a potential Modi'in Miracle comeback to win 7-6 at Sportek. After taking a five-run lead after two innings, Netanya let Modi'in back in the game with a four-run fourth, but did just enough to come out with the victory. Express 10, Pioneers 2 At the Baptist Village in Petah Tikva, the Ra'anana Express beat the Petah Tikva Pioneers 10-2. Dominican right-hander Esequier Pie hurled a complete game and allowed one earned run on four hits, striking out nine.
