in a doubleheader; the previous mark was 29 vs. Gettysburg in 1982.

In the second game, Muhlenberg was the home team, meaning it scored 21 runs in only six turns at bat. It was the first time since 1981 that the Mules reached the 20-run mark while winning a doubleheader game; they lost to Hartwick, 22-21, in a seven-inning game in 2006.

Freshmen Jeff Puklin and Adam Scarzafava, who entered the day with a combined total of two hits and no RBI, enjoyed breakout games, with Puklin driving in six runs in the opener and Scarzafava duplicating that feat in the nightcap. Puklin, batting eighth in the order, ripped two-out, bases-clearing doubles in both the first and seventh innings of Game 1. Scarzafava went 3-for-3 in Game 2, recording two of his six RBI with a single in the seven-run second inning.

Another freshman, Joseph DiCecilia, also drove in six runs, three in each game.

Junior Christian Conti continued his hot hitting, going 5-for-7 in the two games with his fifth triple of the season. Through eight games, Conti is hitting .536.
