BETHLEHEM, Pa. – For the first time since 2006, the Lehigh baseball team swept a doubleheader from rival Lafayette as the Mountain Hawks took two games from the Leopards Saturday at the Baseball Field on Goodman Campus. Senior Andrew Berger threw a complete-game three-hitter as Lehigh won the opener 2-1 while the Mountain Hawk offense delivered five key two-out hits that led to seven runs in a 7-5 Lehigh victory. With the sweep Lehigh improves to 12-16 overall and 4-2 in the Patriot League.
