Seton Hall will visit the Princeton softball team for a 3:30 p.m. doubleheader Tuesday in what will be the first of two non-conference home dates for the Tigers.

Princeton completed its first weekend of Ivy League play this past Friday and Saturday, sweeping Dartmouth before being swept by Harvard. The Seton Hall twinbill is Princeton's last home date until April 12, when it will host La Salle.

The Tigers will enter the week at 5-18 overall, while Seton Hall took two games from Siena Saturday to stand at 17-17 on the season.

Senior Kristen Kaelin leads Seton Hall with a .356 average at the plate including four home runs, while freshman Danielle DeStaso has a team-best five round-trippers. In the circle, Seton Hall rotates four arms, with DeStaso tossing a team-high 68 2/3 innings for a 4-6 record and 3.06 ERA. Freshman Casey Moses (5-5, 2.02), sophomore Jen Metzger (5-2, 2.30) and junior Brooke Tull (2-4, 7.39) join DeStaso in the rotation.

Princeton is 23-10 all-time against the Pirates, though Seton Hall has picked up steam in the series since the Tigers' 15-game win streak to start the series, which began in 1983, ended in 1993. Princeton last faced the Pirates when Seton Hall swept a doubleheader at '95 Field in 2006. The last Tiger win against Seton Hall came in 2005, splitting two in South Orange.

Rookie Alyssa Schmidt is the top Tiger at the plate at .328, while junior Alex Peyton has a team-best five home runs and 18 RBIs. Peyton (2-8, 3.95) and fellow junior Liza Kuhn (2-7, 4.18) each started two games over the weekend, while Meredith Brown (1-3, 4.83) picked up two innings of relief work Saturday against Harvard.
