BASEBALL RALLIES FOR WIN
Bad Weather Strikes Two Mule Teams

The scheduled women’s lacrosse game at Kean was postponed due to ice on the field. The teams will attempt to make up the contest at a future date.

In Florida, the softball team had the second of its two scheduled games rained out after three innings. The Mules were playing Wartburg, ranked 22nd in the Division III preseason poll.

Muhlenberg got its first game in but lost to Bethany, a 2004 NCAA Tournament participant, 10-2. Three Mule pitchers had trouble finding the plate, issuing 10 walks in four innings, allowing the Bison to score four runs without the benefit of a hit to start the fourth.

Junior Andrea Cohen scored Muhlenberg’s first run after hitting her third double of the season.

than 10 runs in back-to-back wins since doing so in a doubleheader against Gettysburg during the 2003 season.

Muhlenberg allowed a single run in the first inning for the third time in four games, and the Thunder (1-3) added five more runs in the fourth inning.

With two runners on in the fifth and trailing 7-2, Oris started the Mules’ comeback with a two-run double. One out later, freshman Joe Carlo singled home Oris. Carlo then stole second, reached third on a wild pitch and stole home on the back end of a double steal to get the Mules to within one run.

The next inning, Oris came to the plate with runners on first and third and cleared the bases with another double to give Muhlenberg its first lead of the game at 8-7.

Sophomore A.J. Bettini hit a pinch-hit RBI single in the seventh, and the Mules added two insurance runs in the eighth on an error and an RBI single by junior Matt Tobia.

Sophomore Eric Wolfer came on in relief and picked up his second career win. He went five innings, allowing one unearned run and striking out two. Sophomore Ryan Sassaman had two hits, including a third-inning triple that brought in two runs.
