The Pirates of Atlantic lost 3-2 to the Phillies of National in a hard fought battle that came down to the final at bats for the Phillies. Both Serio of the Pirates and Davies of the Phillies went the distance on the mound.
The Phillies of National then played the Braves of Cherry Hill American at the Atlantic field on Tuesday, June 23. This game featured many good plays by both teams and much controversy generated from Cherry Hill National over calls by the impartial umpires of Atlantic. After much todo between several innings the game was eventually won in the 8th inning 8-7 by the Braves of Cherry Hill American. This is the first time Cherry Hill American has won the Mayor’s Cup since 1999.
