softball sweeps first home games
Sophomores Ashley Brewer and Alyssa Bruckner combined to hold the Hawks (1-9) to nine hits in the 3-0, 4-0 sweep, which brought the Mules back to the .500 mark with a 5-5 record. It was the first time the Mules did not allow a run in a
Muhlenberg’s four-game winning streak is its longest since a seven-game run in 2006.
Brewer allowed four hits and struck out six in the opener in pitching her second straight shutout. Although Hunter put a runner on base in every inning but the seventh, none made it past second base.
Brewer drove in the only run she would need with a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the first. The Mules added insurance runs in the fifth on a wild pitch and in the sixth on a double by freshman Brittany Blohm.
Bruckner’s five-hitter was her second career shutout. She did not allow a runner past second until the last inning and started two double plays, one on a ground ball and one on a line drive.
After scoring an unearned run on a groundout in the second, Muhlenberg added three in an ugly third inning that featured four Hunter errors.
