The Tiger’s Keeli Zingaro came to bat as the Tiger’s leading home run hitter and had the green light to go deep. When the senior first baseman connected as the yellow ball flew over the left field fence, the Tiger fans rose up from their seats as Trenton took the lead for the last time at 4-2. The Tiger team cleared the dugout as they waited at home to High 5 the Stetson University signee.
