— Albany travels to Glens Falls Monday for the sixth meeting between the Northway rivals. The Dutchmen have a 3-2 record against the Golden Eagles going into the game.

"The way our schedule goes, we have to play against (Amsterdam and Glens Falls) the most," said Davey. "So if we're going to make the playoffs, we have to play well against them."

Furber kept Cooperstown (9-18) off balance all night in Friday's 6-1 victory. The New Jersey native scattered six hits over seven innings to help Albany end a skid in which the Dutchmen won only three times over 10 games.

Young had three hits to lead Albany's offense against Cooperstown, and third baseman Jon Mestas contributed two hits and four RBI.
