Today, the New York Penn League season ends, and Hudson Valley could secure the #1 seed in the postseason with a win. Bowling Green will start their series against Lake County, and despite finishing better than the Captains in both halves, will not have homefield advantage. Montgomery opens their series against Mobile tomorrow. Here is yesterday's featured game by virtue of being the only game played:

Short Season-A Hudson Valley Renegades (51-24) ***Featured game of the day***

Hudson Valley couldn't contain the New York Penn League's best offense in their 9-3 loss at Tri-City. Before the Renegades could score their first runs in the 6th inning, they were already down 5-0, largely due to a pair of home runs allowed by Eduar Quinonez. #9 hitter Dan Gulbransen hit both, and Quinonez was charged with five runs allowed in four innings of work. Richie Shaffer and Luke Maile helped Hudson Valley score the next three runs to close the deficit to two, but Tri-City answered with a four run 7th inning aided by a Leonardo Reginatto error to go ahead by six. Hudson Valley and Tri-City are now tied for the best record in the league at 51-24, and the winner of today's season finale will determine who is the #1 seed.
