Rise Hi remained unbeaten in modified slow-pitch softball league action last week, defeating Optica International 21-5 at Kibbutz Gezer.

Rise Hi scored four runs in the second inning and added four more in the third to take a comfortable 8-1 lead, from which it coasted.

OI scored three in the home half of the fifth, but Rise Hi broke open the scoring, with five in the sixth and eight more in the top of the seventh inning.

The big bats for the victors were provided by shortstop Chaim Jacobson, who went 4- for-4, and outfielder Jeremy Singer, who went 3-for-4 and hit a towering HR in the seventh.Each player drove in four runs.

Rise Hi pitcher Ed Harow won his fifth straight game.

In other action, the Morningside Translations Warriors blew a nine-run lead against an upstart Ginot Shomron team in a game that was called a 15-15 tie after time expired.

The Warriors, who remained undefeated at 3-0-1, were hobbled by inconsistent pitching and some questionable umpiring that allowed the young Ginot Shomron to stay close and mount a comeback.



After exploding for eight runs in the second inning, the Warriors managed only six runs and seven hits off Fred Moncharch the rest of the way. The team narrowly avoided defeat with a game-saving double play courtesy of shortstop Joe Federman and second baseman Naftali Balanson in the bottom of the seventh.

Yaniv Tsaidi and Gershon Jacobovitch led the Warrior offense, each going 3-for-4 and scoring twice. Daniel Heller knocked in four runs and his older brother Aron added three RBIs. Yomi Groner came off the bench to go 2-for-2.

“We didn’t have the necessary intensity out there today and we’ve got no one to blame for missing out on a win but ourselves,” manager Aron Heller said. “We get our ace back next week and with a little more fire in the belly we should be good to go.”
