The end of July is upon us, and the end of the PGCBL regular season is near. As we enter the home stretch, three teams are vying for the final two playoff spots in the league’s East Division.

A quick brief on the PGCBL’s playoff format: Three teams from each division (the East and the West) make the playoffs. The second and third seeds play one game against each other (Divisional Playoffs), and the winners advance to take on the top seed in a best-of-three series (Division Finals). The winners of those series play a best-of-three seriems for the PGCBL Championship.

In the East Division, the Amsterdam Mohawks have clinched the top seed by a pretty large margin. The Mohawks are riding a nine-game winning streak, and are a remarkable 13-1 over their past 14 games. Behind Amsterdam, Mohawk Valley, Albany, and Glens Falls are in a tight race for the final two playoff spots.

The Mohawk Valley Diamond Dawgs (24-18) have a slight advantage over Albany (24-20) and Glens Falls (24-21). The Diamond Dawgs have a double-header against Elmira on Tuesday before closing the regular season against Newark on Wednesday. Mohawk Valley appears to be a strong bet to make the playoffs, especially considering that Glens Falls and Albany play each other in a double-header on the final day of the season.

The Golden Eagles host Cooperstown on Tuesday, and Albany heads to Watertown for a double-header. Then on Wednesday, the Golden Eagles host the Dutchmen in a season-defining double-header.

Both teams have faced their fair share of adversity this season, with a bevy of injuries forcing each club to recruit more and more players as the season has progressed.
