Dogs Win AFL Title
All of the players from the Minnesota Twins organization were on the Phoenix Desert Dogs again this season, and they played a huge part in helping the team collect it's fourth straight Fall League Title.
This season, the players from the Twins organization included Nick Blackburn, Anthony Swarzak, Eduardo Morlan, Ryan Mullins, Matt Macri, Trevor Plouffe, and Drew Butera.
All of the players received playing time for the team, but the stars from the organization were obviously Nick Blackburn, Anthony Swarzak, and Eduardo Morlan.
Nick Blackburn was the biggest of the three, and helped carry the Dogs the whole season. The final game was handed to Blackburn, and he pitched his team to the title. Blackburn lasted 6 innings, and allowed just 1 run. He also struck out 2 hitters while walking just one.
In the title game, both Macri and Butera also played. Macri went 1-3 with an RBI and a run scored. Butera went 1-4.
