‘Phillies Post Strong Season, Come Up Just Shy of Crown’
Submitted by Matt Longfellow, Phillies manager
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
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+ MVP. Scott 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.
