Lowell starter Ryan Phillips
and Brooklyn Cyclones
(Mets) put their best on the line Monday night - the result was, for a while anyway, a pitching duel until the late innings. Lowell starter Ryan Phillips (5-1, 1.85 ERA in 9 starts, allowing only 1 HR in 43 innings with 38Ks) was almost completely lights out in 6-innings picking up the win in the 8-1 victory. Watch this kid folks.
There was, however, a ghostly presence about Edward A. LeLacheur Park - that of the Cyclones manager Mookie Wilson - standing on the top step of the dugout or patrolling at the third base coaching box.
