In Torah Tidbits' third week of the season, the team celebrated the 1,000th issue of the eponymous Shabbat newsletter, pitcher Rabbi Jonathan Cohen struck out five, using the timely 'K' to hold the lead and record a 6-4 win over Jerry's Kids.
The Tidbits scored six runs in the bottom of the first, and then held off numerous Jerry's Kids' rallies, thanks to Cohen's performance.
Later in the week, however, the Tidbits met their match in Janglo. In a roller-coaster game, Janglo pulled ahead for the 8-4 comeback win on an emotional rally.
In the most anticipated showdown of the week, Cafe Rimon blasted Lakewood Heimishe Bake Shoppe 14-6. Cafe Rimon opened the scoring in the first with a sacrifice fly by Nussi Jacobovitch. Then with Chaim Schone on first, Chaim Webber doubled and Shimon Cohen tripled them both home.
Jacobovitch knocked in more runs later, doubling home Pinny Itzkowitz and Chaim Schown. In the fourth, Schone hit a 3-run homer over center, before Jacobovitch launched a monster shot deep over left field. For Lakewood, Dovid Blieman homered over the left field wall, and Shloimy Gruen sparked a 4-run rally with clutch hitting.
In the final contest of the week, Segwayz slipped past Bagelsbergs 6-5. With the score tied at four in the penultimate inning, Segwayz and Bagelsbergs traded shots, with Segwayz staying a step ahead thanks to a pair of runs over the last two innings.
