MEN’S TENNIS results at Drew will be in tomorrow’s Mule Sports Daily
===================

WOMEN’S TENNIS TOPPLES F&M; BASEBALL WINS

• Women’s Tennis: Muhlenberg 7, Franklin & Marshall 2. Muhlenberg rebounded nicely from its first loss of the season, sweeping the doubles matches en route to its first win ever against Franklin & Marshall. The win put the Mules (7-1, 5-1) into a first-place tie with Washington in the Centennial Conference, with Johns Hopkins (4-1) just a half-game back. The Diplomats (5-2, 4-2) had defeated Muhlenberg in all 10 previous meetings.

Sophomore Mackenzie Parke and senior Jennifer Chung led the Mules’ doubles sweep with an 8-5 win at No. 1, moving into a tie for second place in team history with 13 career wins as a team. Parke, sophomores Gena Ross and Sarah Niebler and freshman Emily Oster added singles wins to help avert a repeat of last year, when Muhlenberg swept the doubles against F&M but lost, 5-4.

• Baseball: Muhlenberg 13, Swarthmore 1. Freshman Gregg Burkhart, making his first career start, pitched a complete-game four-hitter with seven strikeouts to earn his first career win as Muhlenberg (15-11, 6-3) moved four games above .500 for the first time since 1982. A two-run double by junior Ben Carr in the first and a two-run triple by senior Joshua Carter in the second helped the Mules open up a 5-0 lead.

Senior Benjamin Leisawitz, who had four RBI in the game, capped the scoring with a two-run single in the fifth. The game was stopped after six innings due to rain. Click here for line score.

games by sweeping Swarthmore, 10-1 and 9-3, in a Centennial Conference doubleheader.

The eight-game streak is the longest in one season since the 1991 team won a school-record 20 in a row.

Sophomore Danielle DeLucia and senior Angela Tyson combined to hold the Garnet (0-17, 0-8) hitless for a stretch of 10 1/3 innings. DeLucia allowed a hit to the third batter she faced, then retired 13 of the final 15 to finish with her second one-hitter of the season. Tyson took a no-hitter into the sixth inning of the second game before allowing five hits and three runs.

The Mules (16-8, 8-2) jumped on top in the first game by scoring six runs in the bottom of the first. A two-run triple by Maser, followed by Kostelnick’s RBI double, highlighted the team’s biggest inning of the season.

Muhlenberg pounded out a season-high 17 hits in the nightcap but scored only three runs in the first four innings. The Mules scored twice in the fifth, then added four in the sixth on two big hits: a two-run home run by Woods and a two-run triple by sophomore Kate Dischino. Woods’ round-tripper, on a long blast to right field, was her third of the season, tying a school record set four times previously.

Freshman Lisa Gerbino also had three hits in the second game. Click here for line scores.
