The Morningside Translations Warriors rediscovered their offensive prowess as they beat down Ginot Shomron 21-11 on a hot, sweaty Friday in the Jerusalem Softball League.

Aside from giving up 8 runs in the second inning, the Warrior defense was solid as well as the team improved to 5-4 on the season.

Yitzi Miller led the way for the Warriors, going 4-for-5 with three triples and six runs batted in. Avi Dzik went 4-for-4 as he enjoyed a rare game off from pitching.

The Warriors got at least a hit each from all their 10 players. Matt Churchill continued his hot season with three hits including a 2-run homer in the first inning.

Elsewhere, the Philip Stein’s Sox stayed in the race for the number three seed in the Jeursalem Softball League beating the Bodner Flomm Blackhawks 25-5 . The Sox jumped out to a big lead in the first inning and never looked back.

The hot-handed Sox banged out 19 hits with Ariel Gilor leading the way with 4 RBIs.

Seth Gerson picked up 3 hits while David Tover scored 3 runs and 2 RBIs. Game MVP Avinoam Bernstein went 2-for-3 and drove in 4 Runs.

In the “All Star Israel Sports Camp” Softball League, Janglo was the bearer of good news, breaking into the winning column with an exciting 13- 9 win, while Zach Noble’s patience at the plate was richly rewarded for Perl Pigments.

Mickey Levinson homered, as Janglo outpaced Ossie’s Fish for the victory, behind the spirited leadership of Janglo captain Zvi Herman, and veteran Binyamin Miller’s turn-back-theclock 3 RBIs.

Meanwhile, Lobos took over sole possession of first place with a win over heretofore undefeated Ziontours.

Lobos opened up a 5-0 lead in the second, thanks to sharp hitting by Nussi Jacobovitz and Yanki Itzkowitz. Ziontours looked to rally, capitalizing on rare errors to tighten the game. However, Lobos pitcher Yaacov Ehrlich helped Lobos continued pursuit of their prelapsarian pace, banishing Ziontours from edenic perfection by a score of 11-4.

Chula Vista took a huge step toward the postseason, with a 6-0 victory over fellow playoff hopefuls, Jerry’s Kids. Yitzi Schwalb recorded the impressive shut-out on the mound for Chula Vista.

Jerry’s Kids second game of the week was perhaps the most exciting of the season to date, and resulted in the first tie of the campaign. The visitors, Perl’s Pigments, broke a scoreles draw with two runs in the fourth, only to see Jerry’s Kids answer with four runs of their own, to take the lead.

The score remained unchanged until the final frame, when the Pigments’ Zach Noble came to the plate with one out and the bases loaded, and gutted out a run-scoring walk.

Akiva Lautman followed up with a game-tying sacrifice fly to deep center field, for the rare 4-4 final.

In other games with major postseason ramifications, Lakewood Heimishe Bake Shoppe defeated the RentACell Rollers 11-7, moving within striking distance of a playoff berth and putting the cell phone provider’s championship hopes in jeopardy.

Pizza Larry, Shmikumaku and Kluger’s Sluggers also each stayed in the playoff hunt, the former with a win over Ossie’s Fish and the latter two with victories over Glenlivet.
