The Bowling Green State University Falcons dropped both games of a double header yesterday in Bloomington, Indiana, losing the first game 8-0 against Indiana and the second game 5-3 against the Valparaiso University. 

GAME ONE 

BG opened game one of the Saturday doubleheader with an 8-0 loss to the Indiana Hoosiers. However, the game was much closer than the score entailed. 

Scarlet Anderson started the game in the circle for the Falcons. The scoring didn’t start for the Hoosiers until the second inning when Brooke Benson doubled with two runners on to score Aly VanBrandt and give the Hoosiers a 1-0 lead.

Later in the inning, the bases were loaded and a walk drawn by Cora Bassett allowed Kinsey Mitchell to score. Then, a wild pitch allowed Benson to score to give the Hoosiers a 3-0 lead in the third. 

After the second inning, the game was quiet until the bottom of the sixth inning. Brianna Copeland was great on the mound for the Hoosiers, and the Falcons were only able to get two hits on the board against the ace. 

Anderson did a solid job of keeping the Falcons in the ball game. After allowing three in the second inning, Anderson pitched four consecutive scoreless innings to keep the game at 3-0. 

In the bottom of the sixth inning, the Hoosiers bats came to life. Avery Parker hit a one out solo home run with one out to get things going for Indiana.

Later in the inning, with a runner on, Benson hit a two-run homer to put the Hoosiers up 6-0.  With two runners, a double steal was called by the Hoosiers, but a throwing error on the throw led to both of the runners to score forcing a run rule and the Hoosiers taking a 8-0 win. 

GAME TWO 

The Falcons then lost the nightcap of the doubleheader 5-3 against Valpo. 

In the first inning, the Falcons got on the board first. After Peyton Steffes reached first on error, Reagan Williamson blasted her and the team’s first homerun of the season giving the Falcons a 2-0 lead.  

But in the bottom of the first, Valpo answered right back. With the bases loaded, Regi Hecker singled to left field, scoring two runners and tying the game at 2-2. 

In the top of the second inning, Kaylee Cole tripled into the left-center field gap after the left fielder from Valpo bobbled the ball, allowing Cole to score and give the Falcons the lead.  

Once again, Valpo answered back in the bottom of the second inning. With the bases loaded, Kayla Skapyak drew a bases loaded walk to tie the game at three.  The next batter, Alexis Johnson, grounded into a double play which allowed another run to score and the Falcons trailed 4-3. 

The score would stay the same until the bottom of the sixth inning, where Valpo would score a run with a sacrifice fly and take a 5-3 lead.  

Unfortunately for the Falcons, Valpo was able to keep the Falcon offense at bay the rest of way as they secured a 5-3 win over Bowling Green.
