CLEARWATER, Fla. (GC ATHLETICS RELEASE) – Former Georgia College baseball player Josh Taylor dealt two clutch performances in his two most recent professional outings, giving the GCL Phillies two consecutive come-from-behind victories against the Blue Jays and the Yankees clubs.

After signing with the Phillies as a free agent, Taylor has taken on the middle reliever role for his new club. In his last three appearances, he has compiled two wins, waved 13 batters in 9.1 innings and given up zero runs.

In his second career outing, Taylor came on in relief to pick up his first professional victory. With the Phillies leading 4-2 in the fourth inning, Taylor entered the game and pitched 4 and 1/3 scoreless innings. He struck out five Blue Jays and did not yield a hit on the way to an 8-3 Phillies victory.

The former Bobcat is turning heads.

“His two outings resulting in his two wins have been season savers,” GCL journalist Baseball Ross wrote. “Losing either one would have meant likely playoff elimination.”

The GCL Phillies are 34-23 and currently in second place in the Northwest Division and are still fighting to make the playoffs.
