Pre-gane
The Phillies (5-9) are looking to right the ship and we’ll see what two days off can do for the local collegiate baseball squad. Monday night’s contest at Watertown was postponed due to field conditions and will be made up on Saratoga’s next scheduled day off, next Monday, June 30.

The Phillies will put out right-hander Mike Fiers (2-1) on the mound. The University of Cumberlands hurler sports a 3.26 ERA over 19.1 innings pitched. He has given up 8 runs, 7 earned on 13 hits. He has walked six batters and struck out 25. Of note, Fiers threw a no-hitter last year against the Mohawks here, at Shuttleworth Park.

Amsterdam (9-4) goes with lefty Logan Darnell (Kentucky). He comes in with a paltry 0.66 ERA in his four appearances with two starts. In his 13.2 innings he has allowed four runs, but only one was earned. He has walked five and struck out 20.
