A lot on the line for Phils versus Watertown tonight

Thanks to NYCBL PR guru John McGraw for reminding me that the Wizards are in town versus the Miners as I originally wrote late Saturday night.

Saratoga Phillies skipper Kevin Graber didn’t want to call it a “must win” contest heading into Sunday’s home tilt against visiting Watertown in their final New York Collegiate Baseball League contest before the All-Star break, but it is as close as the Spa City squad has been to one this season.

Saratoga enters the contest with a 10-13 record and Watertown travels to East Side Rec with a 6-15 mark. A win by the Phillies will put more distance against the last place squad and put pressure on Little Falls (11-12) who is on the road for a twinbill at Glens Falls.

Saratoga holds a 2-1 advantage over Watertown to date this season.

With a built-in two day break for the NYCBL All-Star Game in Watertown (available on Time Warner 3 locally) and a East Division Scout Day following, Graber is free to throw the kitchen sink at the Miners.

NC State hurler Jason Zinser is the scheduled starter and if he falls into any type of trouble, look for Sean Lucas (Virginia), Billy Vernon (Stanford), Matt Tomshaw (Jacksonville) and Dave Batchelder (Saint Peters) to be ready for a trip to the mound on full rest. Even ubercloser Josh Simmons (Wheaton, MA) is available for the ninth, pitching to only two batters Saturday night in a 9-6 win over Bennington and getting out of a bases loaded jam.
