After a short game delay, the Lions baseball team took the field against the SAR Sting. Coming off a heartbreaking 7-6 loss to Frisch, the Lions came out to play with an energy they’ve never had before. After a walk and 2 stolen bases by Junior Abie Schwartz, Junior Ori Engel hit a beautifully played bloop single which knocked in Schwartz, giving the Lions a 1-0 lead. Unfortunately for the Lions, SAR hit a hard hit line drive to deep left field, which was playable but dropped, allowing SAR to score 2 runs and regain the lead at 2-1. Things were looking scary for the Llions in the 4th inning when SAR came to bat with 2 runners on. SAR hit a laser to right field, but Junior Ben Richman was right there to make a diving catch to save them and get out of the inning. After a beautifully hit ball by Sophomore Yosef Weiner, Junior Yehuda Teitelman came on to pinch run and stole a base. Junior Abie Schwartz then hit a phenomenal single up the middle, scoring Teitelman and securing the win to move the Lions to 1-1 on the season.
