The Muhlenberg baseball team was shut out for the first time in two years in dropping the first game of a doubleheader at Franklin & Marshall, 1-0. The Centennial Conference-leading Diplomats completed a sweep by taking the second game, 7-1.

The Mules (15-12, 7-9) had last been blanked almost two years ago to the day, in a 4-0 loss at Ursinus on April 23, 2003. Their streak of 64 straight games scoring at least one run fell short of the school record of 81, set from 1923 to 1930.

Muhlenberg came in averaging 13.4 runs in its last five games, but was held to a single run and 10 hits by three F&M (20-13, 13-3) pitchers.

Sophomore Jason Bonder suffered a tough loss in the opener. He allowed only four hits and struck out six in six innings. Two of the hits and one of his three walks came with one out in the bottom of the fifth, and a sacrifice fly brought in the game’s lone run.

The Mules had runners on base in every inning and put four in scoring position, but none crossed home.

Muhlenberg already trailed 7-0 when it ended its scoring drought in the eighth inning of Game 2.

Senior Matthew Long had three assists in the nightcap to set the school record for career assists with 283.

Mount, Lombardi Break Own Records

Junior Karen Mount and freshman Jenna Lombardi of the Muhlenberg women’s track and field team broke their own school records at Lafayette’s Leopard Invitational.

Mount broke the record in the 1,500 meters for the second week in a row, again knocking about five seconds off her time. She has improved from 4:57.73 to 4:52.19 to 4:47.59 in the Mules’ three outdoor meets.

Lombardi, who became the first Muhlenberg runner to break 13 seconds in the 100 meters two weeks ago, did it again, cutting her time from 12.97 to 12.86.

Mount and Lombardi’s records were among 10 ECAC-qualifying performances at Lafayette.

The men’s team got ECAC performances by senior John Brodowski in both the high jump and long jump.

Sophomore Sarah Mitchell was the lone Mule to win an event, capturing the javelin and hitting the NCAA provisional mark for the third week in a row.

The Leopard Invitational was designated as the Matte Award contest, and Muhlenberg defeated Moravian twice. The men won, 97-73, and the women eked out a 92-90 victory. The final Matte standings for the 2004-05 year had Muhlenberg winning, 12-6.
