Saugerties Stallions at Jamestown Jammers
7:05 PM - Diethrick Park
One of the hottest teams in the PGCBL heads across the state for a meeting with the squad that is tied for the best record in the league. The Saugerties Stallions, who have won four consecutive games, meet up with the 8-2 Jamestown Jammers at Diethrick Park. The teams are only scheduled to play twice this season, with Jamestown's return trip to Saugerties coming on the Fourth of July, a major event for the Stallion franchise.
Glens Falls Dragons at Oneonta Outlaws
7:05 PM - Damaschke Field
Positioning in the middle of the PGCBL East will be at stake when the Glens Falls Dragons travel to Damaschke Field. The Dragons and Outlaws were scheduled to play at East Field on Wednesday, but will instead meet for the first time in Oneonta. Glens Falls and Oneonta are part of a log jam in the middle of the East Division, which also includes Amsterdam. All three teams have four losses, with Glens Falls sitting a half game ahead of the other two at 5-4.
Newark Pilots at Adirondack Trail Blazers
7:05 PM - Robert Smith Sports Complex
The fourth place teams in the Central and West Divisions will battle at the Robert Smith Sports Complex in Boonville. The teams are playing against each other twice this season, with Adirondack's lone trip to Colburn Park coming on June 23. Mike Sansone (Fairfield) will get the ball for the Trail Blazers, who are in search of their third consecutive victory. The Pilots come in on a three game losing streak, tied for the longest current mark in the PGCBL.
Elmira Pioneers at Geneva Red Wings
7:05 PM - McDonough Park
The Elmira Pioneers will look to snap a three game losing streak, which is tied with Newark for the longest current skid in the league. The Pios will need to do it on the road in Geneva, who has lost back-to-back games to drop to .500 on the season. Geneva has controlled the season series thus far in 2018, claiming wins of 2-0 and 4-0 over the Pioneers in Geneva. The teams are scheduled to reconvene in Elmira on Saturday.
