With temperatures in the 60s on Thursday, it certainly feels like baseball weather outside. And for the first time in the 2016 season, we have a full slate of games set to be played.
My plan is to cover Pleasantville at Eastchester, which could feature a high-profile pitching match if Greg Satriale toes the rubber for the Eagles and Drew Marino takes the ball for the Panthers. I would suggest following me on Twitter @vzmercogliano for live updates from that one.
But before we get into the full schedule for Thursday, let’s look back at a few games that were played earlier this week. The most noteworthy was Port Chester’s 3-1 win over Haldane, in which Angel Garcia threw the first no-hitter in Section 1 this season. He allowed just one unearned run and one walk while striking out 12.
Here’s what else has happened in the last couple days:
Tuesday, May 29
Pelham 13, Riverside 1
Albertus Magnus 7, Lourdes 1
Wednesday, May 30
Port Chester 3, Haldane 1
And here is the full schedule for Thursday, with my picks in bold:
