Israel Advances to Winner’s Bracket with Shutout

Israel 1 Brazil 0

Runs were scarce in the winner’s bracket match. Corey Baker pitched five innings of shutout ball, allowing just one hit and three walks to set the stage for Israel in their shutout win over Brazil. Four other pitchers extended the shutout with Brad Goldberg retiring the side in order in the ninth to rack up the save.

Bo Takahashi threw the first four innings for Brazil and allowed the only run of the game. Murilo Gouvea relieved Takahashi and silenced the Israeli bats for three innings.

Nate Freiman delivered a lead off double in the fourth inning that led to the only run. An error by first baseman Dante Bichette moved Freiman to third where he scored on a sacrifice fly by Cody Decker.

Brazil rallied in the 8th with back to back two out singles but came up short. Ryan Sherriff came on in relief of Jeremy Bleich to retire the last hitter of the inning.

Great Britain 14 Pakistan 0

Not much of a game here with a six run fifth putting the game out of reach. Champ Stuart drove in three runs and Albert Cartwright crossed the plate three times, hitting two triples to lead the Brit offense. Pakistan could not overcome 14 hits and 8 walks.
