BASEBALL FALLS IN NINTH

The Wilkes baseball team scored three runs in the bottom of the ninth to hand Muhlenberg its second straight one-run loss, 5-4.

The Mules (8-8) took a 4-2 lead into the last inning on the strength of six-hit pitching by senior Joshua Carter, but the Colonels (10-5-1) hit a two-run homer to tie the game and back-to-back doubles to win it. The first double came on a disputed play, as the Muhlenberg centerfielder appeared to have caught the ball.

In addition to striking out seven in his eight innings, Carter went 2-for-5 with an RBI double. His bunt single keyed a seventh-inning rally in which Muhlenberg scored three runs on a balk, sacrifice fly and throwing error.
