Monday's Scheduled Games
Utica Blue Sox at Adirondack Trail Blazers
Robert Smith Sports Complex - 7:05 PM
Utica and Adirondack will play for the sixth time this season, as the Blue Sox will look to even the season series at three games a piece. Utica won the most recent meeting between the clubs, an 8-7 decision on Saturday night that saw Adirondack score seven runs in the top of the ninth, only for Utica to walk it off in the bottom half. Tom Ambrosino (Adelphi) will get the ball for the Trail Blazers on the road, as the Panther righthander will go for his third win of the season.
Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs at Saugerties Stallions
Cantine Field - 7:05 PM
The second place teams in the East and Central Divisions meet up at Cantine Field for their first battle of the 2018 season. Saugerties enters one game behind Amsterdam for first place in the East, while the DiamondDawgs are 1.5 games behind Watertown in the Central Division. The return trip to Veterans Memorial Park in Little Falls, which will be the final game of the season in the series, is scheduled for Thursday night.
Jamestown Jammers at Oneonta Outlaws
Damaschke Field - 7:05 PM
Jamestown has opened up a commanding 9.5 game lead over the Geneva Red Wings and the rest of the PGCBL West entering the second month of the season. The Jammers, who have the league's best record, will meet up with the .500 Oneonta Outlaws, who sit in third place in the PGCBL East. The game, which is the first in Jamestown's three-game eastern trip, is a rematch from Opening Night, when the Jammers claimed a 7-1 victory behind three RBIs from Rane Pfeifer (Cal State Northridge)
Geneva Red Wings at Newark Pilots
Colburn Park - 7:05 PM
The second place Red Wings and the fourth place Pilots are seperated by just two games in the West Division standings for the guaranteed playoff spot. Monday's game is the beginning of a three-game series between the clubs, with a doubleheader scheduled for Tuesday in Geneva. The home team has won all four games in the season series thus far. Ronald Loomis (Oswego State) is set to make his fourth start of the season for the Pilots, including his second against the Red Wings.
