Softball Hangs Tough with TCNJ

The Muhlenberg softball team still has never defeated six-time national champion The College of New Jersey, but was in position to do so in both ends of a home doubleheader.

The Lions (11-5), ranked 27th in Division III and fresh off a sweep of 2005 national runner-up Salisbury, won 2-0 and 3-1 to extend their all-time winning streak against Muhlenberg to 26.

The Mules (7-9) were held without a hit until the seventh inning of the first game. With one out, junior Tina Roth lined a single to left. A walk and a single by senior Missy DeFrain put the potential winning run on base, but the next two batters were retired.

Muhlenberg took a 1-0 lead in the first inning of the second game. With two outs, junior Hilary Marinchak took third on a delayed steal and scored on an infield error.

TCNJ tied the score in the top of the fourth, and it remained 1-1 through the rest of regulation play. Freshman Michelle Consiglio led off the bottom of the seventh with her second hit, a line drive off the pitcher’s forehead, and was sacrificed to second, but was stranded there.

With the sun setting, the teams went to the international tiebreaker rule for the eighth. The Lions started with a runner on second and had another reach by error, then broke the tie with a two-run single. The Mules could not push across a run in the bottom of the inning.

Junior Nicole Washburn and sophomore Katie Vecchione combined to allow only three earned runs in 15 innings.
