What a way to start Phillies Fall Instructs! Cornelius Randolph lined a three-run homer on to the berm in right at Brighthouse after the first two batters in the first inning, center fielder Simon Muzziotti and right fielder Malvin Matos, both singled to get a quick 3-0 lead over the Blue Jays.
Pitchers Franklyn Kilome, Edgar Garcia and lefty Nick Fanti came on and pitched shutout ball after the first five innings. We love Fall ball where the stars of tomorrow play today. So lets get this party started!
