Joey Mullen of Ursinus experienced an undesirable debut when he took t

The Lions faced the Delaware Valley Aggies at George Ackerman Park on Wednesday. The game set to take place against Penn State Abington the day before was canceled due to the weather.

The Lions were off to a rocky start as starting pitcher Jordan Gray allowed the bases loaded with only one out. Gray ultimately gave up two runs, granting the Aggies an instant advantage while the pregame ener
