Phils post season ends, 4-2

Brian Harris reached after being hit by a pitch.
Bryan Rose flied out to right field.
With Jake Willis coming up, Glens Falls manager John Mayotte pulls starter Brian Moran (North Carolina) for Scott DeNault (San Diego).
DeNault gave up the tying run last night at East Side Rec.
Willis lines out to third and Harris is doubled off at first to end the game, win the East Division and eliminate the Saratoga Phillies from the post-season.

This is it
The Phillies will send Brian Harris, Bryan Rose and Jake Willis to battle back in the top of the ninth if they have any chance of extending their season.

Harvel in for Fiers in 7th
With the Phillies playing for today against Glens Falls, Bret Harvel (NW Missouri State) come on in relief of Mike Fiers.
Fiers, a winner of game one Monday versus Watertown went six innings, allowed four runs, three of them earned. He gave up eight hits, walked two and struck out eight.

Glens Falls up, 4-2 through 6
The contest remains unchanged through six innings with the Golden Eagles up 4-2.
Brett Harvel has warmed up in the Phillies bullpen.
Glens Falls owner Darin Williams is helping the crowd beat the heat, handing out free freeze pops to everyone in attendance.

Mahoney goes long, Phils down, 4-2
The hitting twins, Jake Shaffer and Kevin Mahoney are up to their old tricks again for Glens Falls in the third.
Shaffer led off with a single and Mahoney followed with a two-run home run over the eight-foot high fence in right, putting the Golden Eagles ahead, 4-2, for the first time on the afternoon.

Errors cost Phillies, tied 2-2
It could have been a positive, motivational bottom of the first inning, but final game stress may be effecting the Phillies.
Dan DeGeorge (Princeton) singled to right and made it over to third on what should have been a force at second.
The grounder to Bryan Cook (Nova Southeastern) was thrown into left field on the attempted force and Shaffer was safe at first.
Kevin Mahoney (Canisius) followed with a single to right, scoring DeGeorge. The miscues continued when rightfielder Donnie Webb (Oklahoma State) sailed his throw to third, in an attempt to catch Shaffer was also high. Shaffer was able to score, beating a late throw to Phillies catcher Eric Walker (Oklahoma State), knotting the score at two apiece.

Holy cow Phils up 2-0 on Willis shot
The Golden Eagles got on the board quick Friday night and rode it out to a 4-3 13 inning victory at Saratoga's East Side Rec.
On Saturday, the Phillies stole a page from the Golden Eagles playbook.
Donnie Webb (Oklahoma State) led off with a single up the middle and found his way home on Siena captain Jake Willis's two-out home run to dead center over the CSEA sign at East Field for a 2-0 lead.
Glens Falls starter, Brian Moran (North Carolina) equaled his season total earned runs against the Phillies in the first inning with two.
It is the third time that the Golden Eagles have given up runs in the leadoff inning.

NYCBL table set for GF v SS final
We're just minutes out from the championship rubber match between the Saratoga Phillies and the Glens Falls Golden Eagles in the final game of the NYCBL East Division championship series at East Field.

The Phillies send out righthanded all-star Mike Fiers (U of Cumberlands) who carries a 0.74 ERA against the Golden Eagles. Glens Falls answers with Brian Moran (North Carolina) who owns a 1.00 ERA versus the Phillies during the regular season.

After a three-hour 13 inning contest last night the teams have had little time for rest, nutrition and decompression from the last two contests.

Glens Falls has the momentum, winning last night's game and playing at home. With the temperature in the 80s with low humidity, the sun at high noon could be a great equalizer.

While this has become quite the rivalry, there are some things that transend the foul lines.

Visiting Saratoga Phillies radio personality Andy Santillo came up yo catch the game and is pinch-hitting in the broadcast booth due to schedule conflicts with the noon start.
