Edison hopes third time’s a charm, as Eagles seek breakthrough win against division rival for trip to GMCT semifinals

The first meeting was an 11-1 home loss, the second was a 7-5 road defeat.

If Edison can narrow a seven-run gap again tonight, they’ll beat South Plainfield, when the two teams meet in the GMC Tournament quarterfinals.

The Eagles are the (14-6) are the sixth-seed in the tournament, and have had a good season. And despite third-seed South Plainfield’s 17-2-1 mark, the Tigers are beatable.

Their lone blemishes in conference were a loss and a tie against North Brunswick, a team Edison split with this year, picking up a 4-3 home win, but taking a 3-2 loss in the second of the home-and-home series.


What could be an issue for Edison is pitching when they meet tonight at 7 pm in the GMC Tournament Quarterfinals, in a game you can hear on Central Jersey Sports Radio, following the first quarterfinal matchup between Middlesex and South Brunswick.

Really, it’s not the pitching, but the potential lack of available pitching. Sal DellaFave struggled early in Edison’s opening round win Saturday over in-town rival JP Stevens.

Head coach Vinny Abene went with Dom LaPelosa out of the pen, and so the options get a little tighter for Abene tonight.
