PLATTSBURGH — The Plattsburgh State men's baseball team is playing to win the next two days.
The Cardinals, however, are keeping everything in perspective.
Plattsburgh State, after playing four State University of New York Athletic Conference games this past weekend, have non-conference contests scheduled for today and Wednesday.
The Cardinals (14-4 overall) play at the University of Vermont today at 3 p.m. and then host Skidmore College on Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. at Chip Cummings Field.
"We used five pitchers this past weekend and they did a pretty good job," said Plattsburgh State head coach Kris Doorey.
"Kevin Gent pitched on Saturday and he will be able to get some work in, along with Chris VanHouten, who pitched on Sunday."
"We'll also get a little work for some of our other pitchers who haven't been getting much time on the mound in these two games. It's basically going to be an opportunity for everyone."
The Cardinals return to SUNYAC play on Saturday afternoon with a doubleheader at SUNYIT.
SUNYIT split a twinbill with New Paltz this past weekend.
"We want to be ready to play these games against Vermont and Skidmore and also use them as preparation for the weekend," Doorey said.
The Division I Catamounts, who compete in America East, have a 7-11 overall record.
Skidmore, which competes in the Liberty League, has won five games in a row to square its overall season record at 9-9.
Four of those victories came against Vassar (10-6, 6-1, 5-4 and 1-0),
Former Beekmantown Central School standout Adam Brown leads the Thoroughbreds in hitting with a .357 average in 18 games.
"The game against Vermont is more for experience and playing against a Division I program," Doorey said.
"The Skidmore game is more important for us because it is a regional contest."
