The Games

Baseball begins on Tuesday at noon in Gilbert, Arizona, where the Roughriders will take on the Chandler-Gilbert Community College Coyotes in an ACCAC doubleheader. After a couple of off days, Yavapai then hosts Scottsdale Post Grad on Friday in Prescott, Arizona, at Roughrider Park for a doubleheader that also begins at noon. Both doubleheaders will have live streaming and live stats available on GoRoughriders.com/Live

The Coyotes

Chandler-Gilbert comes into its matchup with Yavapai at 18-23 overall and 9-15 in the ACCAC. Last time out, the Coyotes swept South Mountain. 

Scottsdale Post Grad

Scottsdale Post Grad is a gap year baseball program for high school graduates who are unsigned and wish to get another year of competitive playing experience without using a year of eligibility.

The Roughriders

Winner of five-straight and 16-of-18, Yavapai comes into its week of baseball with a 26-11-1 overall record and 16-8 conference record. Last week, the Roughriders swept Glendale on the road and swept GateWay at home. 

Player To Watch

With a pair of home runs against the Geckos last weekend, redshirt-sophomore outfielder Sean Rimmer became the first Roughrider this season to reach double-digit homers. 

One Last Thing

Last season, Yavapai swept Chandler-Gilbert with scores of 11-5 and 15-7.
