Thursday's Scheduled Games

Adirondack Trail Blazers at Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs
Veterans Memorial Park - 6:45 PM

Mohawk Valley has seen its lead in the PGCBL Central shrink to one game, but the DiamondDawgs still control their own destiny for the Central Division title. Mohawk Valley leads Utica by one game with five to go, and the magic number for Mohawk Valley to clinch a playoff spot is three. Adirondack is still mathematically alive for a playoff spot, but will try to play spoiler to the Dawgs on the road on Thursday night. The scheduled Thursday starter for Mohawk Valley was Marc Bisogno (Fordham), but the Wednesday rainouts could juggle the Dawgs' rotation.

Jamestown Jammers at Geneva Red Wings
McDonough Park - 7:05 PM

Despite the PGCBL West being settled, both the Jamestown Jammers and the Geneva Red Wings have plenty to play for. The Jamestown lead for the top record in the PGCBL, which would grant the West Division a third playoff spot, sits at two games over Amsterdam. Geneva also has a two game lead, with the Red Wings leading the Elmira Pioneers by two games for second place in the West, which would either qualify Geneva for the playoffs or even give the Red Wings a home playoff game in the first round.

Utica Blue Sox at Watertown Rapids
Alex T. Duffy Fairgrounds - 7:05 PM

In the ultra competitive PGCBL Central, the Utica Blue Sox and Watertown Rapids both need a victory to keep pace with Mohawk Valley and try to ensure a top two position. Utica currently holds a 1.5 game lead over the Rapids, with five games to go for the Blue Sox and six games remaining for Watertown. Thursday marks the final meeting of the season between the Central Division rivals. Utica has already clinched the season series, winning six of the first ten games this season. The Blue Sox are 3-2 this season at the Alex T. Duffy Fairgrounds.

Amsterdam Mohawks at Oneonta Outlaws
Damaschke Field - 7:05 PM

Amsterdam has peaked at the right time during the 2018 season, winning six straight games to take a 2.5 game lead in the PGCBL East and move within two games of the best record in the league. The Mohawks, who have already clinched a spot in the PGCBL Playoffs, will look to trim their magic number to clinch the division down from four. Oneonta is still alive for third place in the East Division, which could yield a playoff spot should the Mohawks overtake Jamestown for the best overall record and top seed.

Albany Dutchmen at Saugerties Stallions
Cantine Field - 7:05 PM

The magic number for the Albany Dutchmen to clinch their sixth consecutive trip to the playoffs is down to three, and would be cut to one if the Dutchmen can defeat the Saugerties Stallions on the road on Thursday night. Albany leads the Stallions by three games for second place in the Central, and remain 2.5 games behind Amsterdam for first. PGCBL ERA leader Deaven Phillips (Tampa) will climb the mound for the Dutchmen, who defeated the Stallions 7-0 on Tuesday in the most recent meeting between the teams.

Newark Pilots at Elmira Pioneers
Dunn Field - 7:05 PM

With the third place spot in the PGCBL West currently sending its holder to the playoffs, Thursday night's matchup between Newark and Elmira takes on huge significance. The Pioneers currently hold a two game lead over the Pilots for third place. Newark still has eight games remaining on the schedule, including two doubleheaders, which is the most in the PGCBL. On the season, Elmira holds a 6-3 series lead over the Pilots, who can still tie the season series with wins in each of the final three games in the last week of the season.
