The Muhlenberg softball team had one bad inning in each game, but that was enough for Moravian to earn a doubleheader sweep, 4-0 and 3-2.

In the first game, the Greyhounds (17-3) strung together five singles and an error to score all four of their runs in the top of the third. The Mules (7-11) managed only two baserunners, both on singles, off Moravian’s All-America pitcher.

Muhlenberg took a 2-1 lead in the nightcap thanks to two-out RBI singles by freshman RiRi Ferrigno in the third and Samantha Crist in the fourth. The Greyhounds scored the go-ahead runs in the top of the sixth when an error with two outs and the bases loaded allowed two runs to cross home plate.

The Mules got the potential tying run to third with two outs in the seventh, but the game ended on a strikeout.

Freshman Lara Kestenbaum pitched a complete game in the nightcap, allowing seven hits and only one earned run. Crist went 3-for-3.

Muhlenberg ended its stretch of six games against Cortland State, New Jersey and Moravian – some of the top programs in Division III – with a record of 1-5, but was competitive in all but one. The Mules begin Centennial Conference play Saturday at Gettysburg and have eight of their remaining 10 doubleheaders against league foes.
