Devils Take Two From Mules in Twilight Twinbill
|(Carlisle, Pa.) - The Dickinson College softball team swept a double-header from visiting Muhlenberg on Thursday night, winning the opener, 3-1, and holding on in the nightcap for a 2-1 victory.|
The Red Devils put a run on the board in the fourth inning as Jess Haklar (Coopersburg, Pa./Southern Lehigh) reached on an error and scored on a single by Alesha Sisco (Effort, Pa./Blair Academy).
Melissa Osborn (Stevensonville, Md./Kent Island) singled in the fourth and scored from second when Haklar reached on another error.
Kyrie Budnik (Northampton, Pa./Northampton Area) doubled to right center, moving Haklar to third. Haklar came in with the Devils' third run on an RBI by Erin King (Bowie, Md./Bowie).
Osborn went 3-for-3 while King and Budnik each finished 2-for-4 in game one.
Liz Barry (Millis, Mass./Noble & Greenough) held the Mules to just five hits with six strong innings to earn the win. Allison Jordan (Medford, N.J./Shawnee) came on to strikeout the side in the top of the seventh for the save.
Muhlenberg pushed a run across in the first inning of game two after Ashley Brewer reached on an error and scored on a hit by Jess Kasza.
The Red Devils capitalized early on a couple of Muhlenberg miscues in the bottom of the first to take a 2-1 lead. Sisco lined a shot to the wall in right-center to score King and Emma Murtaugh (Holmdel, N.J./Holmdel).
That would be all the scoring in the nightcap as Jordan held the Mules to just a pair of hits, recording eight strikeouts to improve to 6-3 on the year.
Muhlenberg's Angie Sisco allowed just four hits in game two, suffering the loss despite a solid effort.
The Red Devils improve to 13-14 overall and 6-3 in the Centennial Conference. They travel to Washington College on Saturday for a 1:00 double-header.
