RiseHi defeated CleanTech 12-5 at Gezer last week to recapture the modified softball league title.
RiseHi jumped out to a quick 6-0 lead in the top of the first as Tzvi Harow doubled home two runs and Earl Harow singled home two more.
CleanTech stormed back in the third, scoring five. Dov Friedman started the rally with a solo homer and Aron Heller knocked in two with a triple.
But that was all the offense Cleantech could muster off RiseHi’s Ed Harow, who held the powerful CleanTech attack to 11 hits.
RiseHi was on the top of its defensive game, thwarting all Clean Tech comeback attempts.
In the fourth inning, RiseHi turned a nifty double play to end one rally. And in the sixth, Earl Harow snared a sizzling liner at third base for one out, while Sammy Tover and Aaron Harow made great defensive plays in the outfield.
A three-run Alan Tover homer in the sixth put the game out of reach and ended CleanTech’s hopes of repeating as champions.
Yoni Shwartz drove in another insurance run with a key sacrifice fly.
For RiseHi Ariel Gilor had four hits, Tzvi Harow had three, and Dani Harow and Chaim Jacobson each had two.
Avi Dzik pitched a great game for CleanTech and led the offense as well, collecting three hits.
“We gave them all we got and left it all on the field,” said a hobbling Heller. “We just weren’t good enough to beat RiseHi this year. We’ll get them next year.”
