Today, the Phillies played the Mariners in a Monarch Little League matchup at Cleo West field in Louisville. The game started out close and remained that way for the duration of play - a perfect match. At the end of it all, the Mariners came out the winners by only 2 runs.
It was a fun game for both sides, and both teams played great defense and offense. Interestingly, the umpires cracked down a
more than usual on players leaving to steal a base before the pitch crossed home plate (not legal). It made for less stolen bases and less runs scored overall as a result.
