BASEBALL WINS HOME OPENER
Senior Joshua Carter and junior Kevin Komeshok combined on a five-hitter to pitch the Muhlenberg baseball team to a 4-2 win over Misericordia in its home opener.

Joshua Carter
Carter allowed only one earned run over eight innings to earn his 10th career victory. He also recorded his 100th career strikeout.
Carter struck out eight in eight innings to improve to 3-1 on the season as the Mules won their fourth in a row. Komeshok worked a hitless ninth for his fifth save of the young season.

Carter also had a big day at the plate, going 2-for-3 and driving in two runs. He tied the school record for career doubles by smacking his 30th two-bagger to plate Muhlenberg’s final run in the fourth.

After falling behind 1-0 in the top of the second, the Mules quickly tied the score in the bottom of the inning on a double by senior Mike Morris and a two-out single by sophomore Adam Sadler.

Muhlenberg scored twice without the benefit of a hit in the third. After junior Justin Graf was hit by a pitch for the second time, a sacrifice bunt by junior Justin Rubenstein was thrown away for a two-base error. Carter lined out to center to score Graf, and Rubenstein came around on a groundout by senior Benjamin Leisawitz.

Two walks – one by Graf on an 11-pitch at-bat – and Carter’s record-tying double scored the fourth run. The Cougars (5-3) scored an unearned run in the sixth but were foiled on an attempted first-and-third steal play to end the inning.

The Mule pitching staff has a 2.81 ERA over the last nine games.
