baseball win at ex-“spence” of garnet
The freshman right-hander allowed one run in seven innings in his first career start as the Muhlenberg baseball team evened its record with a 9-2 win at Swarthmore.
Pitching against a Garnet team that is third in the Centennial Conference with a .330 batting average, Joseph (right) gave up only three singles in earning his first career win. He did not allow more than one baserunner in any inning and faced just four batters over the minimum.
As for Conti, he merely drove in four runs with a two-run single in the third and a two-run double in the eighth. With the double, he broke the school records for extra-base hits (21) and total bases (84) in a season.
The Mules (13-13, 4-5) scored four runs in the third, aided by a Swarthmore error on a sacrifice bunt. Two more runs crossed the plate the next inning, the second on a triple by sophomore Eric Pomroy. It was the 20th triple of the season for a Muhlenberg team that started the week fourth in Division III in three-baggers.
Pomroy finished the game 3-for-4, and senior Danny Asip crossed the plate in each of the Mules’ run-scoring innings.
