2 more in the win column

Sunday night in front of a live TV audience, Leon threw an absolute gem against the Modi'in Miracle, and we won 2-1 in what was a fun, if a bit tense, game. In a game like that when the pitcher has his best stuff, nobody wants to be the one who strikes out or makes an error - but nobody let anyone down and the team played formidably behind Mr. Feingold.

Today was a bit more fun, as we came back from an early deficit to defeat Ra'anana 8-4. Julio Guerrero (Vladamir's brother if I haven't already noted that here) started and went 5 strong innings. Justin Prinstein made his return to the mound after a week of illness and injury, and threw a great 6th inning, paving the way for Rafael Rojano in the 7th to close it down. Bryan Pinchuk knocked his first home run of the year, and Dan Rootenberg also hit one out as both of them are swinging the bat particularly well of late. It seemed that everybody in the lineup was on base at one point or another, so it was a great team win.

For more on the Saturday trip, go here... I just don't think a full recap is going to happen. Sorry to all of those holding their breath
