The 2013 PGCBL playoffs are set. In the West, Newark and Elmira will play a single game on Thursday to decide who advances to the West division championship series and face the Watertown Rams.

In the East, Albany/Glens Falls and Mohawk Valley will play a single game on Thursday to decide who advances to the East division championship series and face the Amsterdam Mohawks. At time of posting, the two teams were tied at five in the bottom of the eleventh. If Glens Falls wins, Glens Falls advances to the playoffs. If Albany wins, Albany advances to the playoffs.
