Softball has officially returned as the 2019 men’s finalist Gezer09 beat P.S Sox in the summer league opener as the carrots added another win over the Mean Judeans. On the women’s side, Fireballs dominate Dimona’s Dream Team for their first win of the new campaign.
Israel Softball is back as our Men’s, and Women’s Summer League are underway as teams are obligated to operate under the COVID19 safety and health protocols. We got to watch four games played through the first week of the season, here is a game by game recap:
WP: Micahel Marunov (1:0)
LP: Nadav Divone (0:1)
Gezer09 struck first in the top of the first inning scoring two runs after P.S Sox pitcher Nadav Divone walked in the first run of the game. Michael Marunov took advantage of a miscue Divone wild pitch to score the second run of the top frame. After a leadoff double by Aviv Yakov in the top of the third, Marunov drove him in on a line-drive single to center field. Yoav Eliyahu added a solo shot, which gave the visitors a 4:0 lead.
Marunov was masterful on the mind pitching 7 shutout innings allowing only one hit, striking out 12. On the other end, the promising Divone allowed six hits and four runs while striking out four.
