The Gila Monsters

Eastern Arizona College comes into its matchup with YC at 42-8 overall and 34-6 in the conference. Last time out, the Gila Monsters swept Glendale to push their win streak to 16 games. 

The Roughriders

After splitting with No. 8-ranked Central Arizona College to clinch the conference championship and hosting rights of the NJCAA Division I Region I Tournament, Yavapai comes into its regular-season finale at 48-3 overall and 40-2 in the conference. 

In their previous matchup with the Gila Monsters at home on March 19, the Roughriders earned the sweep with scores of 9-1 and 11-3. 

Player To Watch

Sophomore outfielder Kayla Rodgers leads the country in runs scored with 95 and has already broken the YC single-season runs scored record. If she crosses home plate five more times this season, she will be the first Roughrider to score 100 runs in a season. 

One Last Thing

A sweep on Tuesday would give Head Coach Doug Eastman his third 50-win campaign at YC and his first since 2018.
