Muhlenberg battled Moravian, the second-ranked team in the East Region, but came out on the short end in both games of the doubleheader, 5-1 and 3-2.

In the first game, the Mules (17-14) faced an early 2-0 deficit. They scored one run in the third and got the tying run into scoring position in each of the next two innings, but could not push it across. The Greyhounds (29-9) put the game away with three in the fifth.

Muhlenberg did climb out of a 2-0 hole in the nightcap, plating runs on two-out hits by senior Samantha Crist and sophomore Jess Kasza in the fourth and fifth. Moravian won on a walkoff single with one out in the seventh.

Crist doubled in each game.
