Utica 5 Elmira 2
The Utica Blue Sox advanced to the PGCBL Championship Series for the first time in team history with a 5-2 win over the Elmira Pioneers at Dunn Field.
The Blue Sox won both road games in the series to take the series. They took a 1-0 lead in the fourth inning on an error but Elmira plated two in the fifth to take the lead on a sacrifice fly and a Rob Perteet RBI single. A Mitchell Calandra RBI single in the seventh tied the game at two before a sacrifice fly in the eighth gave Utica the lead for good. A Kyle Winkler RBI single and a groundout in the ninth added insurance runs for the Blue Sox.
Ryan Green tossed 2.2 scoreless innings of relief to earn the win for Utica while Parker Caracci took the loss for Elmira.
