The Arizona Rattlers and San Jose Sabercats have never quite been able to stay out of each other’s way. The Rattlers have knocked the Sabercats out of the playoffs three times in the past 11 seasons; the Sabercats have knocked the Rattlers out four times in that same time span. This season does not look like it will be any different: Arizona and San Jose are clearly the class of their conference, and a date in the playoffs seems almost certain.
You can see a preview of that likely playoff match-up on Saturday, May 31, when Arizona and San Jose will square off at US Airways Center, 201 East Jefferson Street. The Rattlers figure to have the edge (they bested the Sabercats in San Jose earlier this season), but being favored rarely matters in this rivalry. The game will kick off at 6:30. Tickets start at $5 and are available online through www.ticketmaster.com.
