Monday's Scheduled Games
Albany Dutchmen at Newark Pilots
Colburn Park - DH - 5:00 PM
Entering this week, the top three teams in the PGCBL East are seperated by only a half game, with Albany trailing both Amsterdam and Saugerties by that half game. With the Stallions and Mohawks playing each other, the Dutchmen would move into first place with two wins, second place with one win, and would stay in third with two losses. Newark enters the doubleheader 1.5 games behind Geneva for second place in the West Division despite a league-low 12-20 record.
Glens Falls Dragons at Watertown Rapids
Alex T. Duffy Fairgrounds - 7:05 PM
Monday's game marks the last of the season between the Watertown Rapids and the Glens Falls Dragons. The Rapids topped the Dragons at East Field, 5-1, behind a four-RBI performance from Bailey Lewis (Catholic U.). The Rapids enter Monday's contest with a half game lead over the idle Utica Blue Sox for second place in the PGCBL Central, and trail Mohawk Valley by two games for the top spot. Glens Falls is currently on a four game losing streak, which has dropped the Dragons into fifth in the East.
Elmira Pioneers at Geneva Red Wings
McDonough Park - 7:05 PM
The Elmira Pioneers will try to move into second place entering the All-Star break on the road against the Geneva Red Wings. Geneva leads the Pioneers by one game, as each of the bottom three teams in the PGCBL West have gone 5-5 in their last ten games. The Red Wings hold a slim lead in the season series, taking four of the seven contests. The teams split a home-and-home series last Tuesday and Wednesday, with the road team winning both games- Elmira won 6-2 in Geneva, and Geneva won 9-5 at Dunn Field.
Amsterdam Mohawks at Saugerties Stallions
Cantine Field - 7:05 PM
A fierce PGCBL East rivalry will be renewed at Cantine Field, as the winner of Monday night's contest will sit in first place in the division. The season series is even at three games apiece, with Amsterdam taking two of three in a two-day series this past Tuesday and Wednesday. The home team had won each of the first games in the series, but the last two games have gone to the visitors - Saugerties' 5-4 victory at Shuttleworth on Tuesday and Amsterdam's 5-2 win in Saugerties the next day.
