It's a five game slate in the PGCBL on Sunday evening, as ten teams are in action on the final weekend date before the All-Star Game.
Sunday's Scheduled Games
Oneonta Outlaws at Elmira Pioneers
Oneonta will look for a sweep of their home-and-home series with the Elmira Pioneers on Sunday. The Outlaws rolled to a 7-0 victory at home on Saturday night, getting six shutout innings from Chris Polleta (Fairfield) to move into fourth place in the PGCBL East. The winner of Sunday's game will win the season series, which is currently tied at two games apiece. Entering their final home game before hosting the PGCBL All-Star Game, the Pioneers hold a percentage point lead over the Newark Pilots for third place in the PGCBL West.
Glens Falls Dragons at Albany Dutchmen
The East Division rivals are set to meet for the seventh time this season, with the season series to date even at three games apiece. The Dutchmen, who sit one game behind the Saugerties Stallions for second place in the PGCBL East, will host the Dragons three times in the next two weeks before the season series ends in Glens Falls on July 30. After three straight losses, the Dragons have slipped into fifth place in the East, but can move back into fourth with a win and an Oneonta loss.
Jamestown Jammers at Utica Blue Sox
Jamestown will more than likely be the first team to clinch their spot in the PGCBL Playoffs, as the Jammers hold a 10.5 game lead over the Geneva Red Wings in the West Division. The Utica Blue Sox, on the other hand, are locked in a tight battle for playoff positioning in the Central, sitting 2.5 games behind Mohawk Valley for first and a half game behind Watertown for second. The game is the last of two games this season between the clubs, with the Jammers holding a 1-0 lead after a 13-4 victory back on June 7.
Amsterdam Mohawks at Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs
A pair of first place teams are set to renew their rivalry in Little Falls on Sunday evening. Mohawk Valley and Amsterdam have combined to win each of the last six PGCBL championships, and could very well meet in the playoffs again this season. Sunday's game marks the second and final meeting of the season between the Dawgs and the Mohawks. Mohawk Valley won the opener over a month ago, claiming a 5-3 victory on June 12 at Shuttleworth Park despite being outhit 10-7.
Watertown Rapids at Adirondack Trail Blazers
In the PGCBL Central, all four teams are seperated by just 5.5 games entering the final two and a half weeks of the season. Watertown currently occupies the second spot in the division, two games behind first place Mohawk Valley. Adirondack sits in fourth place, 3.5 games behind the Rapids for a playoff spot. Adirondack has won three consecutive games against the Rapids this season, which has evened the season series at four games with four more games left to play this season.
