Your own gentlemen of The Phoenix Club of East Nashville took an early lead over the Oak Hill Travellers and made it hold up at sunny Carnton Plantation Sunday. Staked to an early 3-0 advantage, Phoenix used excellent pitching and some outstanding team defense to hold on for a grueling 7-4 victory. The win moves the red-trousered batsmen to 3-4 on the season – Huzzah!
Despite an early lead under threatening skies, your loyal Phoenix were unable to hold off the talented Franklin Farriers on Sunday at Carnton Plantation, finally falling 16-12. A 10-man East Nashville squad fought valiantly throughout, succumbling only scant minutes before the terrible storms lashed Middle Tennessee. A tip of our (wet) caps to the Farriers and to all the cranks who braved the elements to join us – Huzzah!
Your Phoenix of East Nashville made the trip to scenic Carnton Plantation to complete the opening round of games against the Oak Hill Travellers. On a beautiful Sunday afternoon, they held on to beat the Travellers by 14-9. Hats off to our fine opponents, and Hip Hip Hooray for the Red and Grey!
Afterwards, the celebration is on at Drifters in East Nashville. Huzzah!
