softball topples no. 2 wartburg
Junior Lara Kestenbaum pitched a six-hitter against the Knights, who were second in Division III with a team slugging percentage of .585 last year. She allowed one extra-base hit, a triple, and retired the final two batters with the potential tying run on second.
Freshman Jess Kasza struck the big blow in her first career game, hitting a two-run double to cap a three-run fifth. Trailing 2-1 entering the frame, Muhlenberg loaded the bases with one out before junior RiRi Ferrigno brought in the tying run with a single and Kasza followed with her two-bagger.
Kasza also singled in the Mules’ first run in the Augustana game and scored the second after doubling.
Junior Samantha Crist reached base in six of eight plate appearances in the two games, going 3-for-5 with three walks.
