TCNJ will be right back on the field on Thursday heading to Moravian College for another non-conference doubleheader.

TCNJ 2, Muhlenberg 1 (8 innings)
Sophomore pitcher Ashley Minervini (Cliffside Park, NJ/Cliffside) picked up her sixth win of the season tossing a complete game allowing only an unearned run on four hits with five strikeouts.

The Lions plated a pair of unearned runs in the game with sophomore Ellen Seavers (Ridgewood, NJ/Ridgewood) crossing the plate in the top of the first and freshman Kathy Sikora (Marlton, NJ/Cherokee) in the top of the eighth with the winning run.

TCNJ 12, Muhlenberg 1 (5 innings)
The Lions once again allowed only one run, but this time received plenty of offensive support thanks mostly to a nine-run third inning.

Senior Christina Lizzi (Wyckoff, NJ/Ramapo) had the big hit in the inning bringing home three runs with a base-clearing double. Sikora also provided a spark plating a pair of runs with a base hit.

Lizzi finished the game going 3-for-4 with four runs batted in, while Sikora was 2-for-3 with three RBI.

Freshman Alex Sietsma (Glen Rock, NJ/Glen Rock) earned the win on the mound for the Lions yielding an unearned run on four hits. She also struck out six for her second win of the season.
