Phils rained out Thursday afternoon, twinbill on tap Friday

It was speculation all day of whether East Side Rec could handle the on again, off again rain that fell in Saratoga County and I got the answer just after 3 p.m. when Phillies co-general manager Keith Rogers called to let me know that today's game was rained out.

The Phillies were scheduled to take on the Bennington Bombers Thursday and Friday night at East Side Rec, but now will attempt to get both games in on Friday beginning at 5 p.m. in a twi-night event.

Saratoga (6-10) will have Oklahoma State's Taylor McKinney throwing in the 5 p.m. contest with Maryland left-hander Eric Potter set to start the nightcap.

The Phillies need to sweep Friday's twin set against the Bombers (8-7) to help erase some of their early season woes and see if they can start a positive streak after Wednesday's win over Little Falls at home.

Saratoga is in its best shape of the year with the entire staff healthy and at least cleared to play and spirits appeared high after the win over the Miners.

A sweep could go a long way to erase the early season doldrums of the college ballplayers.
