Hudson Valley Baseball Rankings (5/15)
The Indians split with Arlington last week but clinched a league title in the process. Interesting week ahead with Clarkstown South, and then Kennedy in the first round of the Ricky Lombardo Tournament at home Saturday.
Barring a big upset, the Patriots should close out the regular season with four wins (Clarkstown North, Carmel, Poughkeepsie and Hen Hud) and earn a Top 4 seed in the Class AA playoffs.
The Red Raiders close the regular season this week with a pair of matchups with Suffern, games that will determine a league champion. A matchup of aces — Joe Anselmi for North Rockland and Dominick Kulbaba for Suffern — could be special.
The dream of a perfect season ended for the Iron Dukes with last week’s 6-0 loss to New Paltz. It was a minor setback for Marlboro, which closes the regular season with games against Monticello and Wallkill.
The Tigers are reeling a bit after back to back losses to Kennedy and Columbia. They should get back on track this week with season-ending matchups with Mount Vernon.
Things are falling into place at the right time for Suffern, and they can really build some playoff momentum this week with two meetings with North Rockland. A league title is on the line.
Any loss for the Bears is surprising, and Friday’s defeat to Keio was a stunner. Maybe they need games like that to refocus for another title run?
The Admirals followed up last Tuesday’s loss to Ketcham with a convincing win over their rivals the following day. Arlington will be in the middle of the Class AA bracket. Yet they’ll be the team nobody wants to play.
The Huskies return to the rankings after splitting with Fox Lane last week and knocking off Tappan Zee on Monday. Pitching is deep. Max Bruckner and Luke Sassone are both 5-0 and Michael Forgione has a 3.22 ERA.
With a week to go in the regular season, the Gaels are sitting in prime position to capture a Section 1 championship in Class A. They’re hitting exceptionally well and have faced one of the toughest schedules in the section. Beating Mamaroneck Friday showed they were for real.
