The defending MAC Tournament Champions Bowling Green lost their elimination game to Western Michigan.
WP- Keegan Akin (4.2 IP, 2 H, 0 R/ER, 3 BB, 1 K)
LP- Ethan McKenney (0.1 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 0 BB, 0 K)
SV- Gabe Berman (1 IP, 0 H, 0 R/ER, 0 BB, 0 K)
Down by three, the Falcons took the lead in the 4th inning scoring four runs of their own, putting an early end to Chad Mayle's day, even though only one of the four runs scored against him was earned.
Stalling until the end, Western Michigan went off when the Falcons brought in Ethan McKenney to close out the 9th. Getting only the leadoff hitter Kurt Hoekstra to groundout, five straight batters reached base before McKenney was taken out of the game.
Western Michigan will play tomorrow (5/23) at 4:30 p.m. against the loser of tonight's Ball State vs. Kent State matchup. Bowling Green's baseball season is over.
