the Centennial Conference opener for both teams.

Junior Jason Bonder earned his second straight win with seven strong innings. After two two-out walks led to two runs in the first, he shut down the Garnet (5-7) for the next five innings and did not walk a batter for the rest of his outing. Bonder struck out four, including back-to-back Ks with runners on second and third in the second.

The Mules (8-8), who won for the fifth time in six games, scored runs in each of the first four innings. In the first, senior Matt Tobia brought home junior Ryan Sassaman with one of his three singles. Junior Matthew Block tripled in a run in the second, and Tobia scored on a wild pitch in the third.

Muhlenberg broke the game open with four in the fourth, combining three hits with three Swarthmore errors. Sophomore Daniel Asip led off with a single and went to second on a walk. Hammond then reached on the first of his three consecutive bunt singles, and when the throw could not be handled, Asip scored. Sassaman’s groundout brought in another run, and Hammond scored on an infield error.

Junior Pete Oris capped the rally with a double to deep left that barely missed being a home run.
