  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

Falcons lose first game, Berger hits home run in second game win against IPFW Mastodons

A short spurt of rain couldn’t stop the softball team as the Falcons split with Indiana-Purdue-Fort Wayne University on Tuesday.

BG dropped the first game 6-4 before regrouping and winning 7-1 in the midweek doubleheader against the Mastodons.

The Falcons started the game by scoring two runs in the first inning. Marisa Shook had two RBI off a single to center field. Paige Berger and Hannah Fulk both scored.

BG’s strong start would be nothing in comparison to the energy that IPFW would bring in the fifth inning. The Mastodons would tally six runs off of five hits. IPFW took advantage of the Falcons’ three errors in the inning, as the entire team would have two RBI and one earned run.

BG added two more runs in the sixth inning but were unable to muster a comeback.

Megan Flenniken had three hits with a run scored to lead IPFW.

Game two was highlighted by Berger, who went two-for-three, hitting a home run while earning two RBI and scoring two runs herself.

BG would start the game off in the third inning with three runs off of one hit. Chloe Giordano walked, then advanced to second on Emily McClelland’s ground out. Fulk walked, which was followed by Berger’s home run to left field.

A quick three outs for IPFW at the top of the fourth-inning-lead to more Falcon offense. Adrienne Dick singled to third base allowing Jessica Gregg to score on an unearned run.

BG added two more in the run columb in the fifth. Berger, second to bat, would get on base with a walk. Two consecutive wild pitches would allow Berger to move to second and third. Yoho would would hit Berger home. Yoho would later score on a third wild pitch in the inning.

IPFW would add one run in the sixth, but the Falcons would match it in bottom of the frame; making it four consecutive innings with runs. McClelland would get on base with a single then move to second as Fulk was walked. Berger would single to right field, scoring McClelland and effectively reaching the final score of 7-1.

Yoho and Dick would add RBI for the Falcons including the four from Berger, giving pitcher Paris Imholz her 15th win of the season. Jamie Kertes was pinned for the loss from game one.

With the split, BG remains in third place in the MAC East with six games left to play. The Falcons will welcome Toledo to Meserve Field for a weekend series Saturday and Sunday.
