Kent State's early 5-run inning was more than enough to take care of business against the fifth seed Bowling Green Falcons.
WP- Brian Clark (8.1 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 7 K)
LP- Mike Frank (3.2 IP, 6 H, 5 R/ER, 1 BB, 3 K)
SV- John Fasola (0.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R/ER, 0 BB, 1 K)
Scoreless game heading into the bottom of the fourth, designated hitter Zarley Zalewski hit a triple down the right field line to drive in a pair of runs. Mike Frank retired the next two batters before the Flashes went on a 3-run, 2-out rally to put an end to his day. Three strait hits from Jeff Revesz, Curtis Olvey and Zack Beckner put Kent State ahead 5-0 in the fourth.
