It was 5.1 inning of shutout, six strikeout baseball by 19-year-old Nick Fanti and a clutch two-run single by 17-year-old right fielder Jhailyn Ortiz.  They were the key players in the 3-2 win for the GCL Phillies over the GCL Cardinals this afternoon in the best of three Finals at Bright House Field.  Read HERE.

Fanti came on for the win in relief of starter Kevin Gowdy who pitched the first two innings.  Jose Nin relieved in the ninth inning and induced a 6-4-3 double play with the bases loaded to end the game for his second save of the playoffs. Watch HERE.

It has been good, exciting, baseball and if you are in the area, stop in at Bright House tomorrow at high noon to see some real good baseball for the GCL 2016 Championship.
