Plainfield East baseball wins first playoff game in program history
Bengals hold on against Bolingbrook to advance to regional semifinal
BOLINGBROOK - Monday was truly a historical day for Plainfield East’s baseball program as the Bengals topped host Bolingbrook 5-3 in a Class 4A regional playoff game, earning their first postseason victory in program history.
East, the No. 18 seed in the sectional, will face No. 1 Downers Grove South in a regional semifinal game at 4 p.m. Thursday at Hinsdale Central. The game was origianlly scheduled for Wednesday but was postponed due to weather. The Bengals haven’t played the Mustangs this season, but coach Adam O’Reel knows a little bit about them. Last spring, the Bengals fell to the Mustangs 8-7 in a regional semifinal game.
“They’re good,” O’Reel said. “They haven’t lost a lot of games. We’ll see what happens. We gave them a run for their money last year. Let’s see if we can do it again.”
