BASEBALL OUTLASTS DICKINSON

Senior Kevin Komeshok became the all-time saves leader, freshman Brian LaRochelle belted his first career home run, and senior Justin Graf tied two records as the Muhlenberg baseball team held off Dickinson, 13-9, in an important Centennial Conference game.

The win keeps the Mules (19-9-1, 10-5-1) a game ahead of Gettysburg (8-6-1) in the loss column for fourth place in the CC. Muhlenberg is scheduled to close it CC season with a doubleheader at first-place Johns Hopkins tomorrow, while the Bullets have a home twinbill against last-place Washington and a single game at Hopkins.

After letting an early 5-0 lead slip away, the Mules went ahead for good in the fifth when LaRochelle drove a pitch over the fence in right-center for a two-run homer, making the score 7-6. Muhlenberg scored three more times that inning, the last two on a two-out double by senior Justin Rubenstein.

The Red Devils (7-16, 2-11) got to within 10-9 when starting pitcher Geoff Neese hit his second home run of the game, a three-run shot, in the seventh. Komeshok came in with two runners on base later that inning and got his first batter to hit into a 1-6-3 double play to retire the side.

The Mules extended their lead to 11-9 in the eighth on sophomore Matt Long’s third hit of the game, an RBI double, but Dickinson threatened in the bottom of the inning. With a runner on second and Neese’s position in the batting order looming, sophomore third baseman Aaron Regensburg made a diving stop of a ground ball for the second out and snared a low line drive for the third.

Komeshok ended the game with another double play to record his 12th career save, breaking a tie with two other pitchers for the school record.

Graf tied the CC record for stolen bases in a season (36) and the school record for doubles in a season (11). Rubenstein finished 3-for-5 with two doubles and three RBI, and junior Adam Sadler also drove in three runs with a pair of singles.

Junior Chris O’Connor fanned a career-high eight batters in earning his sixth win of the season.
