SOFTBALL SPLITS WITH G’BURG
BIG INNINGS DO IN BASEBALL TEAM

Big innings spelled big trouble as the Muhlenberg baseball team dropped a home doubleheader to McDaniel, 9-8 and 10-3.

The Green Terror (11-4-1, 6-1-1) scored six runs in the fifth inning of the first game and eight runs in the fourth inning of the second game, wiping out Muhlenberg leads both times.

In Game 1, the Mules (12-8, 3-4) trailed 9-3 with six outs left, but mounted a comeback. They scored twice in the sixth to cut the gap to 9-5. Senior Justin Rubenstein led off the bottom of the seventh with his second home run of the week, and freshman Ryan Jaxheimer hit a two-run single to get Muhlenberg to within one run. The game ended with the potential tying and winning runs in scoring position.

Sophomore C.J. Kessler went 3-for-6 with a double, RBI and two stolen bases in the twinbill.

game-winning run in the bottom of the seventh as the Muhlenberg softball team won the first game of a home doubleheader with Gettysburg, 5-4. The Bullets came back to earn their own one-run win in the nightcap, 3-2.

Sarno began the seventh with a single, went to second on an outfield error and was sacrificed to third by senior Kelly Berg, setting the stage for Cartolano’s game-winning hit down the third-base line.

Cartolano also doubled in the Mules’ first run, in the first inning. Muhlenberg (5-14, 4-2) took a 4-2 lead in the fifth on a three-run triple by junior Jackie Maser, but Gettysburg (11-5, 3-1) scored twice in the top of the seventh to tie the score.

Junior Danielle DeLucia pitched in and out of trouble the entire game to earn the win. The Bullets, who came in averaging 8.86 runs per game, stranded 10 runners.

In the second game, Muhlenberg took a 2-0 lead in the second when junior Amanda Ibey tripled and scored on an error. Cartolano shut out Gettysburg over the first three innings, but injured her finger fielding a ground ball and had to be relieved.
