ARMS, BATS EXCEL IN ROUT OF CONCORDIA
Mike Morris
Morris capped the scoring by leading off the eighth inning with his second career home run.
Senior Joshua Carter and two relievers combined on a four-hitter and every player in the starting lineup had at least one hit as the Muhlenberg baseball team shut out Concordia (Mich.), 14-0, in Homestead, Fla.

Carter struck out eight, allowed three hits and walked only one to improve to 2-1 on the season. The Cardinals got only two runners past first base against Carter and freshmen Peter Lankarge and David Maffei.

The offense, which has been no-hit once and one-hit once already this season, erupted for season highs in runs and hits (14), scoring three runs in each of four innings. The final score nearly matched last year’s 15-0 whitewash of Washington, which was the Mules’ biggest shutout win since 1986.

The top two hitters in the Muhlenberg (5-5) lineup, juniors Justin Graf and Justin Rubenstein, each went 2-for-3 with three runs scored and two stolen bases. Junior Ben Carr drove in the first two runs with a first-inning single and added another RBI single in the sixth. Senior Mike Morris blasted his first home run of the season in the eighth.
