Gezer09 and Warriors met on November 6th for the finals of the Babe Gillett Memorial Tournament.
The Warriors bats got to work early and with the help of singles by Kfir Leon, Raz Shuker and Yomi Klaff they were able to capitalize on some Gezer09 errors and go up 3-0 in the top of the 1st.
Gezer09 were able to even up the score in the bottom of the 1st with the help of some shaky defense by the warriors as well as a single by Alberto Scioscia.
In the bottom of the 2nd Gezer09 were able to grab a 6-3 lead, but Warriors didn't give up and scored 2 in the top of the 3rd.
Both teams settled in and the score remained 6-5 until the 7th inning. During the Top of the 6th the warriors could have evened up the score but a crucial running mistake by Adi Leon and a good defensive play from second baseman Tom Haskell prevented it from happening. Adi Leon lead the inning with a double. Yomi Klaff tried to move him over with a bunt down the 3rd base line, however, Adi Leon tried to take home on the throw from third to first and was gunned down at the plate by second baseman Tom Haskell to keep the score at 6-5 for Gezer09. In the bottom of the 6th Gezer09 were able to tack on 2 more runs, which was enough for pitcher Michael Marunov to close out the game with a quick top of the 7th.
