FERRIGNO SLAMS; SOFTBALL SWEEPS
BASEBALL COMEBACK NOT ENOUGH; SNYDER TEES OFF AT COLUMBIA

BASEBALL
The Mules rallied late but couldn’t make up for early miscues and lost their fifth in a row, 13-10 at home to Dickinson.

Muhlenberg (4-14, 1-5) allowed 11 unearned runs in the first six innings and fell behind, 13-4. In the bottom of the seventh, the Mules scored six runs, all with two out, to close to within three. Senior Mike Hart tripled in the first run, and later in the inning freshman Dan Fisher knocked in a pair with a triple of his own – his first career hit.

Muhlenberg could get no closer than three runs, however, going down in order in the eighth and ninth.

Senior A.J. Bettini went 2-for-4, extending his hitting streak to nine and raising his team-leading batting average to .385.

The saying “it’s not over ’til it’s over” wasn’t quite true for the Muhlenberg softball doubleheader at Franklin & Marshall: This one was over before it was over.

The Mules swept the Diplomats, winning the first game, 8-2, behind a grand slam home run off the bat of sophomore RiRi Ferrigno, and taking the nightcap, which was called for darkness as F&M was mounting a comeback, 6-4.

Michelle Consiglio
Sophomore Michelle Consiglio had two hits, including a double, and scored two runs in Game 2.
18 runs scored in its last three games, continued its hot hitting at the start of the opener. Two walks, an infield single by Ferrigno and a wild pitch brought in a run in the first inning.

In the second, the Mules (6-12, 3-1) scored another run on a wild pitch and had the bases loaded with two out when Ferrigno blasted her first career home run. It was the third home run of the season for Muhlenberg, and two of them have been grand slams.

The Mules extended their lead to 8-0 with two unearned runs in the top of the third. The Diplomats (6-16, 0-4) got the two runs back in their half of the third, but senior Nicole Washburn shut them out the rest of the way.

Muhlenberg jumped on top in the second game, scoring a run on a two-out RBI single by freshman Jenna Van Waalwijk in the second. Ferrigno’s RBI double and an RBI single by junior Jennifer Rosenthal highlighted a three-run third.

Rosenthal (single) and senior Hilary Marinchak (double) had run-scoring hits in the fifth. The seventh inning began with the Mules up 6-4 and darkness approaching. Muhlenberg scored twice in the top of the seventh to go up 8-4. F&M loaded the bases with two out in the bottom of the inning and was about to bring the tying run to the plate when the umpires called the game for darkness. The score reverted to the last completed inning, giving the Mules a 6-4 win and the sweep.

Rosenthal went 3-for-3 with two RBI in the second game, and senior Tina Roth also had three hits.
