2015 Champions


Championship Recap:

The season came down to the #1 seeded Tn. Tribe and the # 2 seed Knoxville Nightmare. Both teams finished 10-4 in the regular season and split the head to head matchups 2-2, so this was as evenly matched a championship series as any in ETABL history. 2 Cy Young winners and perennial allstars in Ryan Greer (Tribe) and Wes Cobb (Nightmare) took the hill. The Nightmare struck early as David Shannon had a first pitch 1B into LF, which was followed up by back to back 2B by Wes Cobb and Taylor Owens as the Nightmare took an early 2-0 lead. It wasnt until the bottom of the 3rd when the Tribe finally put up a tally as Brubaker and Stanley led off with back to back singles, as 2015 MVP Brian Woodlief drove in the first run with a Sac Fly, 2-1. To this point Greer had worked out the kinks and was cruising allowing just 1 more hit through the fifth while K'ing 4. In the bottom of the fifth the Tribe broke through, as Micah Reynolds lead off with a 2B, followed by an onslaught on hits including a 2 out, 2 RBI, broken bat single by Woodlief, followed by an additional RBI off the bat of Michael Seymour, the Tribe now led 4-2. The Nightmare tried for a comeback in the 6th and had the bases loaded until LHP Woodlief relieved Greer and closed the door on the scoring opportunity by K'ing the batter with 2 outs. The Tribe tacked on an insurance run in the bottom of the 6th as 2 batters 1B on infield hits, 5-2. But the reigning champs never hung their heads and with the bases loaded in the 7th Taylor Owens continued his tear at the plate with a bases clearing 3B, which was followed immediately by Josh Elliotts RBI 2B, 6-5. The 8th was all Nightmare as Brian Overbay led off with a double and was followed by a PH 1B bunt by Billy Osborne. This opened up another floodgate as Shannon, Cobb had RBI's and Owens hit a solo shot . Cobb cruised the 8th and 9th to pick up the CG win. This is the Nightmares 7th ETABL Championship. Taylor Owens was named 2015 Playoff MVP hittin .585, with a 2B, 3B, 3 HR's, 11 RBI, 4 R, and SB in 3 games.
