South River travels to EB Tech in the midst of best season in six years

South River won a sectional championship in 2016 under Mike Lepore, now in his 25th season as head coach of the Rams. But even he thinks this team might be extra special, since they’ve been tearing the cover off the ball all year.

With just two losses – one to White Division foe Spotswood and one in their own Blue Division to St. Thomas Aquinas, which they split with – the Rams (12-2) can clinch a share of the GMC Blue with a win in Wednesday’s second game of the two-game series at East Brunswick Tech.

Central Jersey Sports Radio will broadcast the game, with pregame at 3:45 and first pitch at 4:00 from Ray Cipperly Field in East Brunswick. Mike Pavlichko will call all the action; click here to listen live and for free.

EB Tech (7-5) will try to spoil all that, and get off a three-game schnied by throwing one of its top pitchers, in Scott Pede, who’s 3-1 on the year. But he’ll face fabulous freshman Julius Rosado, who’s 4-0 in five starts and has struck out 50, walking only eight, in just 23 and 2/3 innings pitched.
