They didn’t expect to play a Friday doubleheader, but when North Brunswick visits No. 10 Middlesex this morning for an 11 am first pitch, they’ll “play two.”
Rain and thunderstorms in the forecast forced the postponement of Thursday night’s matchup between the Blue Jays (4-1) and Raiders (3-3), now a divisional game since Middlesex moved up to the GMC White Division.
But the Jays are still in Central Jersey Group One, where they’ve won the last four sectional finals dating back to 2017, and five in the first six seasons played under head coach Justin Nastasi.
There should be some good pitching matchups, as North Brunswick plans to throw Rutgers-committed junior Zach Konstantinovsky will start Game One, and sophomore Kyle Anderson the second game. Middlesex will toss senior ace Stephen Young and junior Alfonso Esposito. Who will face off against the other will be determined once the lineups come out Friday morning.
