ISELIN, NJ – It may have seemed more like a home and home, but it really wasn’t. The Tigers opened the season at home defeating Iselin Kennedy 2-1 On March 31st, but after some winter weather, and snow-outs South Plainfield traveled to Iselin and won once again this time defeating the Iselin Kennedy Mustangs 4-1. Tigers’ hurler Billy Keane repeated Rob Gonzalez’s opening day gem by allowing just one unearned run on three hits while striking out seven. It was the second complete game victory in a row for South Plainfield.

The Tigers offensive production all occurred in one inning. South Plainfield broke up a scoreless game by scoring four runs in the fourth inning. Tiger Ryan Massett had the key hit blasting a three run home run. Massett was 2-for-3 on the game while teammate TJ Massaro knocked in the other Tiger run.

The victory improves the Tigers record to 2-0.
