Ferrigno Ties Record in Softball Split
Four-Run Rallies Key in Both Games

Freshman RiRi Ferrigno doubled in each game to tie the school record of 13 two-baggers in a season as the Muhlenberg softball team split a non-conference doubleheader at Messiah.

The Mules (15-15) won the opener, 5-3, but had their seven-game winning streak snapped with a 5-2 loss in the nightcap.

Muhlenberg broke on top with four runs in the third inning of Game 1. With one out, junior Hilary Marinchak reached on catcher’s interference and stole her ninth base of the season. Freshman Samantha Crist singled her to third. A single by junior Tina Roth brought in Marinchak, and Ferrigno followed with a two-run double to center.

Freshman Michelle Consiglio capped the rally with an RBI single to right.

Crist reached on a bunt single and scored on Ferrigno’s single in the seventh for an important insurance run. The Falcons (18-14), who scored the first run allowed by the Mule pitching staff in 28 innings in the sixth, added two more in the seventh before junior Nicole Washburn got the final out, sewing up her fifth win in a row.

Muhlenberg took a 2-1 lead in the second game, but Messiah plated four runs in the bottom of the fifth.

The Mules (15-13, 8-5) entered the day a half-game ahead of the Red Devils (14-15-1, 7-3-1) for the fourth and final playoff spot. The two teams play again at Dickinson on Friday.

Freshman Eric Hammond, who broke up the no-hit bid with a leadoff single in the sixth, added a two-run single in the seventh.
