SOFTBALL York 3, Muhlenberg 2; Muhlenberg 6, Christopher Newport 2. Down to its final strike, Muhlenberg scored six runs with two outs in the top of the seventh to defeat Christopher Newport and stay alive in the NCAA Tournament. Sophomore Kelly Berg tied the score with a two-out, two-strike, pinch-hit single, and freshman Becki Toth followed with a two-run double off the shortstops glove. An RBI single by freshman Jaclyn Maser and a two-run single by senior Elizabeth Kostelnick capped the uprising. Freshman Danielle DeLucia tossed a five-hitter and allowed only one earned run to pick up the win.
In the first game, the Muhlenberg jumped
out to a 2-0 lead in the fourth, but York came back with two in the sixth
and one in the eighth.
The Mules scored their runs on back-to-back
doubles by freshman Amanda Ibey and sophomore Meghan Woods and a two-out
RBI pinch-single by sophomore Missy Arnott. Ibey went 3-for-4 in the game
with a pair of doubles. All four NCAA games played by Muhlenberg the last
two years have been decided in the final at-bat.
