Playoff Bracket and ResultsUpdated Thursday June 14, 2018 by Nashua Cal Ripken.
Come down to Murray Fieldat 5:30pm for the Majors Championship Game, between the Red Sox and Phillies. This is going to be a treat, folks - both teams are prepared to compete until the final out. If the Red Sox beat the Phillies in Game 1, that means both teams will have 1 loss, and in a double elimination tournament, that means we play two!
Making things even more interesting - the Phillies were the team to send the Red Sox into the losing bracket - a 2-0 pitching duel! This could end up being the ultimate grudge match.
There's plenty of room to drop a lawn chair in the outfield and areas surrounding the field - come on down and support some great baseball, in the shadow of Holman Stadium.
