  • 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.

The Bowling Green Falcons finished their season dropping the final two games 9-3 and 2-0 against the Ohio Bobcats. 

GAME ONE 

The Orange and Brown dropped the first game of the Sunday doubleheader 9-3 against the Bobcats. 

In the top of the first inning, Aaralyn Nogay reached base after a single to lead things off for the Falcons. During the next at-bat, Nogay would then steal second and then would be bunted over to third to put a Falcon 60 feet away from scoring with one out. With one out a wild pitch allowed Nogay to advance home and give the Falcons a 1-0 lead. 

In the home half of the first inning, a hit-by-pitch allowed Lauren Yuhas to reach first base with no outs. Yuhas was then bunted over to second to be put in scoring position with one out. A ground ball pit allowed Yuhas to advance to third with two outs. With the runner on third a wild pitch allowed Yuhas to take home and tie the game at 1-1. 

The score stood at 1-1 until the bottom of the third inning. Yuhas led off the inning with a double put the Falcons were able to get back-to-back out without allowing her to advance. With two outs, Izzie Wilson hit a double of her own to score Yuhas and take the lead. Wilson then scored after Sydney Grein hit an RBI single to left to make it a 3-1 ball game. 

The Bobcats kept the pressure on the Falcons in the bottom of the fourth inning. A lead-off single from Tori O’Brien got the inning started. Later in the inning, O’Brien would come around to score after a throwing error allowed her to score from first and make it 4-1. A sacrifice bunt moved the runner from first to second with now two outs in the inning. Emma Hoffner then singled to left field allowing the runner from second to score and make it 5-1 Bobcats. 

Ohio kept putting two runs on the board, scoring two more runs in the bottom of the fifth inning. A leadoff walk to Grein and then a ground ball out put a runner in scoring position with one out for the Bobcats. A wild pitch allowed Grien to swipe third, putting herself 60 feet away from scoring with one out.  O’Brien then worked a walk to put runners on the corners for the Bobcats. O’Brien would then be caught out in a run-down in-between first and second which allowed Grien to score from third to make it 6-1. With nobody on and two outs, Annalia Polie hit a solo home run to left field to go up 7-1 over Bowling Green.  

The Falcons showed some fight in the top of the sixth inning scoring two runs of their own. An error allowed Peyton Dolejs to reach first and a single from Reagan Williamson put runners on first and second with no outs. Scarlet Anderson then singled to center allowing Dolejs to score and put Peyton Steffes who pinch-ran for Williamson to advance to third. Steffes would score after Marti Henkel grounded out to the shortstop making it 7-3 Bobcats. 

The Bobcats responded with two more runs of their own in the bottom of the sixth inning. With one out, the Bobcats put runners on first and second. A wild pitch allowed for both the runners to advance putting two runners in scoring position with one out. Wilson then singled to second but a throwing error allowed both runs to score making it 9-3 Bobcats. 

The Falcons did not score in the top of the seventh allowing the Bobcats to take the first game 9-3. 

GAME TWO 

The Falcons lost game two and the final game of the season 2-0 in a pitcher’s duel. 

The only two runs of the game came in the bottom of the second inning. Grein hit a single with one out to become the first base runner of the inning for the Bobcats. Brenna Farmer then singled to put runners on first and second for Ohio. Paoli then singled to left field which scored Grien and a throwing error by the left fielder allowed Farmer to reach third. Emily Caron then hit a sacrifice fly to right field which allowed Farmer to score from third and give the Bobcats a 2-0 lead. 

Mackenzie Krafcik pitched 5.2 innings for the Falcons only allowing one earned run and four hits in a great outing in the circle for Bowling Green. Ellie Price pitched and got the one out via a strikeout in her outing.  

Ellie Greene pitched a complete game shutout against the Falcons, only allowing five hits and earning one strikeout, but kept the Falcons completely off the board earning her second win of the season. 

With the two losses, Bowling Green finished the season with a 6-38 record, and 3-23 in Mid-American Conference play.
