  • 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, OH – Falcons cheering for the home run at Steller Field in Bowling Green, Ohio

BGSU baseball (29-18, 21-6 MAC) captured a series win against Eastern Michigan (14-33, 9-17 MAC) on Sunday in what could be called the biggest win of the year as the Falcon earned the title of outright regular season champions of the Mid-American Conference (MAC).

The win marks the first time since 2009 that the Orange and Brown have been crowned regular season champs and BGSU’s seventh series win in the MAC so far this year.

A win did not come easy for the Falcons who found themselves down 5-1 at the start of the second inning with reliable junior starting pitcher Nic Good being pulled 0.2 innings into the contest after allowing six hits for five runs in the first inning. 

Pitching for the Orange and Brown found its stride once it reached the bullpen with just one fourth-inning run tacked on by the Eagles for the rest of the game.

The fourth inning was also a kickstart for the Falcon offense with junior center fielder Nathan Archer mashing a two-run home run that would be the first of three for BG’s offense.

In the sixth inning freshman catcher Garrett Wright would make things a home run party, smoking a center field shot that would score two more runs. The final Falcon to join the home run club was senior infielder David Silva whose lone homer was the last score of the contest. 

BG baseball started the season with a chip on their shoulders, being picked to finish 8th in a MAC preseason poll, they now become the ninth team in school history to be crowned regular season champions. 

The Falcons will end their regular season with a rivalry series against the Toledo Rockets with the series starting on Thursday, May 16th at Steller Field in Bowling Green. BGSU won their first game against Toledo in a non-conference game on April 30th (17-9).
