The Bowling Green softball team lost both games in a Wednesday doubleheader against the Miami RedHawks.

The Falcons were shutout both games, losing 13-0 in game one and 8-0 in game two.

Game one of the doubleheader started on a beautiful sunny day at Meserve Field.

The first inning was all RedHawks as they jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the top half of the first inning.

In the bottom half, Falcon freshman Delaney Davis started the inning working the count and earning a walk.

She then advanced to second on a ground out by sophomore Wynnie Reid.

Junior Sophie Weber then came up and reached on an error, advancing Davis to third.

However, a few outs later left them both stranded on the bases.

A huge third inning for the RedHawks propelled them to nine runs in the inning.

In the bottom half of the third, Davis got the lone hit for the Falcons singling to left field.

However, Miami started to dominate as they added one more run to the day with a homer in the fourth inning.

A few 1-2-3 innings later and the game was over due to mercy rule in favor of Miami 13-0.

The day wasn’t over as game two of the doubleheader against the Redhawks began shortly after.

Miami struck first blood again as they scored in the top of the first.

In the bottom of the first, Reid singled to the left side and a fielder’s choice got her to third base.

However, she leaned too far off the bag as she was picked off at third to end the inning.

The RedHawks and Falcons exchanged a few 1-2-3 innings until the bottom of the third as freshman Katie Hutter singled up the middle.

The next at-bat had Davis reach on a fielders choice, as the RedHawks’ defense got the out at second throwing Hutter out.

Reid then added to her hit column for the day as she singled up the middle advancing Davis to second.

A groundout to the shortstop ended the inning.

Senior Hannah Davies was still on the bump through the fifth inning, but her day ended after giving up four runs.

In the bottom half of the fifth, Hutter also added to her hit column singling to left field.

Miami then added on two more runs in the sixth inning, giving them a total of eight runs.

In the bottom of the sixth, the Falcons tried to muster up some offense, but the game ended due to mercy rule in six innings.

The RedHawks came out victorious by a score of 8-0.

The Falcons fall to 8-27 overall and 1-14 in the MAC. The Falcons return to play this Saturday at Akron for a 3-game series.

First pitch is set for 1:00pm.
