SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – The South Plainfield Lady Tigers’ home opener started off with a bang. Tiger senior Caity Hughes drilled the first pitch in the bottom half of the first inning over the center-field wall for a 1-0 Tiger lead. After consecutive walks, Tiger backstop Camryn Schaeffer doubled in two runs to put the Tigers up 3-0. A single by Tiger Julie Davis to knock in Schaeffer and the Tigers had a 4-0 first inning lead.

“The four run first was obviously the key to the game,” said South Plainfield Coach Don Panzarella. “Anytime we can get ahead we should be in good shape.”

All seemed to be cruising along well for the Tigers, but just as their season opener on the road against North Brunswick, South Plainfield’s bats went cold. The Tigers put up goose eggs in the second, third and fourth innings, while Woodbridge punched across two runs in the fourth inning to cut the Tiger lead to 4-2.

“I’m disappointed we didn’t put the game away,” said Panzarella. “We score four in the first and we just sit on the lead? That’s not going to work. We need to start doing the little things better and move runners over.”

The Tigers did start doing the little things in the fifth and sixth innings. A sac fly by Katherine Vill moved runners to second and third base. A rope back through the box hit by Schaeffer, was knocked down by Barron pitcher Jordan Cinelli, but South Plainfield’s Jennifer Grasso scored on the play to increase South Plainfield’s lead to 5-2.

South Plainfield’s Cameron Marks led off the sixth inning with a double over the left-fielders head. Marks advanced to third on a sac bunt and scored on another Hughes’ rocket, this time into the left center-field gap.

South Plainfield right-hander Katherine Vill picked up her second win of the season allowing just one earned run on seven hits while striking out seven batters.

After the game Schaeffer reflected on the critical first inning. “When Kat bunted the two runners over in the first I knew I needed to come through,” said Camryn Schaeffer. “I’m just glad l was able to knock both runs home.”

I just want wanted to get us going,” said Hughes when asked about her first pitch home run. “I think we are a good team, we need to make some adjustments and we will be very good this year.”

Coach Panzarella couldn’t agree more.
