  • They Both Die at the End – General Review
    Summer break is the perfect opportunity to get back into reading. Adam Silvera’s (2017) novel, They Both Die at the End, can serve as a stepping stone into the realm of reading. The pace is fast, action-packed, and develops loveable characters. Also, Silvera switches point of view each chapter where narration mainly focuses on the protagonists, […]
  • My Favorite Book – Freshwater
    If there’s one book that I believe everyone should read once in their life, it’s my favorite book – Freshwater by Akwaeke Emezi. From my course, Queer Literature under Dr. Bill Albertini, I discovered Emezi’s Freshwater (2018). Once more, my course, Creative Writing Thesis Workshop under Professor Amorak Huey, was instructed to present our favorite […]

Bowling Green baseball slaughters Ohio 26-5, marking their 17th consecutive MAC win 

The win also marked BG’s best home start in program history 

Another day of baseball means more history etched into the record books by the Bowling Green baseball team (22-11, 17-0 MAC).  

The Falcons pummeled Ohio University (10-24, 6-14 MAC) on Saturday afternoon, defeating the Bobcats 26-5. 

The victory marked BG’s 10th consecutive win at Steller Field, the best home start in program history.  

The 17th consecutive conference victory extended BG’s Mid-American Conference (MAC) record for the best start in conference play. Based on available information, the winning streak is believed to be the second-longest MAC winning streak of all-time, trailing only Central Michigan’s 21 straight conference wins in 2022.   

The win was BG’s seventh in a row, marking their longest winning streak this season, and secured the Orange and Brown’s first series win at home over Ohio since the 2018 season.  

Ohio got on the board first, scoring three runs in the top of the first inning.  

However, BGSU responded by scoring three in the bottom half of the frame, tying the game.  

After a scoreless second inning, the Bobcats jumped ahead by one run in the top of the third, 4-3.   

Bowling Green retaliated with 21 unanswered runs across the third through sixth innings.  

Although OU scored again in the top of the eighth, BG added two more runs in the bottom half of the inning, securing their 21-run victory.  

Junior pitcher Nic Good started on the mound and earned the win for the Falcons, allowing four runs, seven hits and three walks while striking out three batters in five innings.  

Sophomore pitchers Calvin Mitchell, Perry Miller, Kade Arn and Luke Krouse combined to toss four innings of one-run and no-hit baseball in relief for BGSU.  

Meanwhile, graduate right-hander Tim Knapschaefer, Ohio’s starting pitcher, allowed 14 runs and 12 hits across 3.1 innings pitched, taking the loss.  

Offensively, every BG starter recorded a hit.  

Junior outfielder Nathan Archer led the way, recording his fourth multi-homer game of the season. 

Archer batted 3-6, hit two home runs, scored five times and drove in six runs. 

The Lagrange, Ohio, native moved into a tie for eighth all-time in career home runs in BGSU history with 32. He also moved into a three-way tie for 10th all-time in single-season home runs in program history with 14. 

Junior outfielder Caden Parker also tallied three hits 

Meanwhile, sophomore designated hitter DJ Newman, senior outfielder Jack Krause, freshman first baseman TJ Takats and senior infielder Landon Roque all tallied two hits.  

Newman and freshman catcher Garrett Wright were the only BG starters who did not drive in a run.   

Along with Archer, senior third baseman Leighton Banjoff, Takats, senior infielder David Silva, Parker, Roque and junior outfielder Gavin Ganun all drove in multiple runs.  

On top of outhitting the Bobcats 20-7, the Orange and Brown drew 15 walks, tying the program record.  

Describing Bowling Green’s offense this season as dominant may be an understatement.  

The Falcons have scored double-digit runs in six straight games and 17 of 33 contests this season.  

BG is averaging 10.4 runs per game this season and 14 runs scored per game in conference play.  

Next, the Falcons will aim to make more history as they battle Ohio in the series’ final game on Sunday at 1 p.m.  

With a win, the Orange and Brown would tie the BGSU athletics record for the best MAC start and most consecutive MAC wins in a season, set by the volleyball team during the 2020-2021 campaign.  

Falcon Media Sports Network’s Tyler Kavalecz and Chas McNeil will have the call of the game from Steller Field on 88.1 WBGU starting at 12:40 for pregame and 1 p.m. for the first pitch.
