The Gate City Grays begin their hunt for a fourth Northern Utah League championship Thursday, when they take on the Smithfield Blue Sox at 7:30 p.m. in Smithfield, Utah.
The best-of-three series comes back to Pocatello on Friday for a 7:30 p.m. game at Halliwell Park. The if-necessary game three will be played Saturday in Smithfield. The series winner advances to the NUL championship series, which begins Monday.
The third-seeded Grays (16-14) went 2-4 in six matchups this season with the second-seeded Blue Sox (16-11). Five of the games were decided by three runs or fewer.
