G13 Pre-game Little Falls at Saratoga Springs
The Saratoga Phillies return to East Side Rec tonight to face the Little Falls Miners in a home-and-home series with Saratoga coming on with their first two consecutive wins of the year and are on a positive roll.

Tonight is a homecoming of sorts for Little Falls starting pitcher, Morgan Smith (Binghamton) pitched for Shenendehowa High School in Clifton Park, just a few miles south of Saratoga Springs. The right-hander comes in sporting a 1-0 record and a stingy 0.90 ERA in two contests with one start. He's allowed only 8 hits in 10 innings of work, giving up three runs, only one of them earned. He's walked three, struck out three and committed a balk.

The Phillies answer with Kellen St. Luce (Vanderbilt) who has struggled so far this summer. The lefty comes win with a 9.95 ERA in two appearances with 6.1 innings pitched. He has given up eight hits, leading to 10 runs, 7 of them earned. He has walked seven, struck out six, thrown two wild pitches and committed a balk.
