Baseball Loses in Finale

The Muhlenberg baseball team fell short against DeSales in its final game of the season, 8-3.

The Bulldogs (28-8) scored the first eight runs of the game before Muhlenberg (17-15) scored three in the ninth. Junior Steven Lapicki had a run-scoring double, junior Chad Hegstrom singled in a run, and freshman Joe Carlo brought in a run on a fielder’s choice. The Mules had two runners on base when the game ended on a groundout.

Muhlenberg could have used some of that timely hitting over the first eight frames. Junior Matt Tobia had three hits in his first three plate appearances and advanced into scoring position each time but never crossed the plate.

Senior Aaron Regensburg, one of six seniors playing in his final career game, pitched three innings of relief and allowed no earned runs.

Softball Splits; Misses Out on CC Playoffs

Senior Ally Ogden closed out her Muhlenberg softball career in style, pitching a six-hitter and going 3-for-3 in the Mules’ 5-2 win against Haverford in the second game of a doubleheader.

Muhlenberg lost the first game, however, 1-0 in nine innings, and was eliminated from Centennial Conference playoff contention. The Mules (14-19, 6-10) needed a sweep to earn the fourth spot in the playoffs; instead, it went to Washington.

Sophomore Nicole Washburn pitched a gem in the opener, allowing only five hits and striking out a career-high nine batters. One of the hits was a triple with one out in the ninth, and that runner scored the lone run on a fielder’s choice.

Washburn also had one of only two Muhlenberg hits in the game, a leadoff single in the sixth that broke up a no-hitter. Of the Mules’ 10 CC losses, six came by shutout, including three by a 1-0 score, and three came in extra innings.

Muhlenberg overcame its disappointment to capture the second game, thanks to the pitching and hitting of Ogden. She entered the seventh with a three-hit shutout, which was preserved temporarily when junior Kristina Cartolano threw out a runner at home from right field. The Fords (11-24, 6-10) did score two unearned runs later in the inning to spoil the shutout bid.

Ogden singled to ignite a three-run third inning. Sophomore Katie Olson doubled in the first run, and sophomore Hilary Marinchak, who had two singles in the game, scored the second on an infield single by Cartolano. The final run came in on a wild pitch.

Senior all-time hits leader Becki Toth singled home Ogden in the sixth in the final at-bat of her career.
