BGSU Baseball (3-10) dropped both games of Saturday’s doubleheader against the Ohio Bobcats (4-10), falling 11-3 in game one and 6-4 in game two.

Bowling Green held leads at points in both games but was not able to hold on to either.

Senior Tyler Hays (L, 0-2, 12.75 ERA) started the first game for the Falcons but got hit hard by the Bobcats’ lineup.

Hays was given the loss, only lasting 1.1 innings and allowing seven runs on five hits.

Bowling Green’s offense was quickly given a two-run deficit to come back from, as Hays allowed three quick hits in the first inning, two of them bringing home baserunners.

At the top of the second frame, the Falcons were able to put up three runs thanks to Jack Krause, Tyler Ross, and Ryan Johnston.

The bottom of the second is where it came undone for Bowling Green.

Ohio scored eight times, putting them up by a score of 10-3.

Ohio scored one more time in the bottom of the fourth inning and then continued to blank the Falcons’ offense on the other end.

Junior Peyton Wilson started the rubber match between BG and Ohio.

He went five innings, allowing eight hits but only letting two runs cross home plate.

BG went up early after INF Nate Rose singled in the top of the 1st to bring home sophomore Nathan Archer.

The score remained 1-0 until the bottom of the fourth inning.

However, Bobcats’ INF Alec Patino and OF Will Sturek quickly scored to put them up 2-1.

Falcon freshman Sam Seidel took matters into his own hands the very next half inning, scoring two runs to put the orange and brown back on top.

Archer tacked on another later in the inning, scoring off of a Rose groundout.

Freshman Luke Krouse came in in relief for Wilson, quickly filling up the bases and allowing back-to-back singles to tie up the ballgame.

Then, the Bobcats took a 6-4 lead to conclude the day.

Archer batted 4-7 between both games, scoring twice.

Seidel went 2-7 and brought home two runs, hitting the first collegiate home run of his career.

The team will next face off against the Oakland Golden Bears in a home-and-home series on March 14-15.
