Frustrated Phillies fans should cheer on local team

In sandlot play, Linglestown locks up playoff spot

Our hometown team, Linglestown Twilight, came up with a four-run fifth inning to scratch out a 6-3 win Tuesday at Koons Park over the always tough Middletown Brewers. With the win, Twilight finished with a 14-9-1 record, earned a trip to the league playoffs and stayed atop the standings, tied with Hummelstown.

Bryan Stovall got winning hit Tuesday
Twilight pitcher Chris Nolan (3-1) pitched a steady ball game for six innings to get the win and Evan Phillips struck out two in a one-inning relief outing to earn a save.

Offensively, Twilight catcher Bryan Stovall swatted the key hit in the fifth inning, a high bouncing single over the third baseman's head that scored two runs. Right fielder Kyle Hollingsworth sealed the victory with a solo homer in the sixth inning.

Palmyra has a chance to overtake both Linglestown and Hummelstown by winning the two games remaining on their regular season schedule. If Palmyra loses one, Linglestown and Hummelstown will play a one-game playoff Friday with the pennant and top playoff seed on the line, according to a Patriot-News report. Check the Gazette on Friday morning for schedule information.

Twilight notes — Center fielder Sam Nott finished the regular season with 10 home runs. His latest display of power happened Saturday when he rocketed two balls over the fence at Koons Park against Steelton. ... Pete Hayden, the team's pitching ace, finished the regular season with very respectable 8-1 record. ... Former Central Dauphin pitcher Bryce Wolford recorded his first win of the year Saturday against Steelton. ... Finally, I'd like to organize a flash mob for a playoff game. It would be cool to have people come from all directions into Koons Park a few minutes before the first pitch to cheer for our hometown team. Watch the Gazette for more details.
