PITCHING CARRIES BASEBALL, SOFTBALL TEAMS TO SWEEPS IN FLORIDA
GIBBS ACHIEVES MILESTONE WIN

Senior Angela Tyson and sophomore Danielle DeLucia allowed eight hits and no earned runs to lead the Muhlenberg softball team to a season-opening sweep of Kean (3-0) and John Carroll (8-3) in Osceola, Fla.

The shutout of Kean gave Mule head coach Ruth Gibbs her 100th career win.

Gibbs, pictured here with Jaclyn Maser, is the third coach in Muhlenberg softball history to reach the 100-win mark.
Just starting her sixth season, Gibbs has a career record of 101-90 and needs six more wins to surpass Brian Bodine (1985-90) as the program’s all-time winningest coach.

Tyson tossed a six-hitter for her 10th career shutout and helped her own cause by doubling in junior Meghan Woods with Muhlenberg’s first run in the second. Woods led off three innings by getting on base and wound up scoring each time, taking care of things herself in the sixth inning by belting her first career home run.

In the second game, DeLucia struck out eight and took a one-hit shutout into the bottom of the seventh before three straight errors led to three unearned runs.

The Mules jumped on John Carroll for three runs in the first and added four in the fourth. Sophomore Becki Toth had two doubles and scored three runs, and sophomore Kate Dischino rapped a two-run double in the fourth.

BASEBALL EVENS RECORD

eight innings to earn his first career win. Sophomore Kevin Komeshok worked the ninth for his second save.

The Mules took a 2-1 lead on the defending Commonwealth Conference regular-season champions in the top of the fourth on a two-out, two-run error. A sacrifice fly by junior Steve Rohn plated junior Justin Rubenstein with the eventual game-winning run in the sixth.

A hit-and-run single by senior Mike Morris keyed a two-run ninth inning that also featured two walks, a run-scoring passed ball and an RBI single by sophomore Adam Sadler.

O’Connor was true blue against Madonna, hurling a three-hitter for his first career complete game. He struck out two, walked none and allowed only one runner past second base.

Muhlenberg got on the scoreboard faster than a ray of light, scoring twice in the top of the first. Junior Justin Graf and Rubenstein led off with singles. A double by senior Joshua Carter brought in one run, and a sacrifice fly by senior Benjamin Leisawitz scored the second.

Rubenstein led off the sixth with a double and eventually scored an insurance run.
