‘Phillies Post Strong Season, Come Up Just Shy of Crown’

Submitted by Matt Longfellow, Phillies manager

2016 was a fantastic season for our third season together.  We finished the season with a 12-4 record and as the regular season Runners-up.  We defeated the Indy Bandits in the quarterfinals 9-3 and then defeated the Indy Irish 2-0 in the semi-finals behind a complete game shutout from Eric Teall to advance to the championship.  Matt Alspaugh and Matt Pulley finished as co-batting champions and Matt Pulley was named the 2016 IBL 28+ MVPScott Kessler, Chris Cole, and Jeremy Martin had fantastic 2016 seasons as well! 

In our Championship game we had our ace Eric Teall, who has won multiple Cy Young and MVP awards, pitch a complete game shutout in the semi-finals and then another complete game in the championship.  We jumped out to an early lead but the Giants came back and tied the game before we surrendered three runs in the late innings.  We scored one run in the ninth but could do no more.  It was a great game and great season.
