Both Miami and Ohio earned big wins to stay in the hunt.

Miami 7, Eastern Michigan 6

Another day, another walkoff win for the RedHawks (21-5, 5-1 MAC) as Landon Stephens hit a two-out single to score the winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning after Reid Norberg tied the game up earlier in the inning with a RBI-single of his own. Miami continues to nip at the heels of Ball State as the Cardinals are the only team left with an unblemished conference record. Jeff Timko and Zachary Owings of EMU (5-22-1, 0-6 MAC) supplied the offense with five hits, four runs scored, and two RBIs but the bullpen for Miami kept the ‘Hawks in the game as Alex Stobert tossed for 3.2 innings with five strikeouts, four hits and two earned runs allowed while Andy Almquist got out of the ninth inning by striking out the only batter he faced. The Red and White hosts Northern Kentucky on Wednesday to keep their three-game winning streak alive while EMU takes on Oakland at home the same day.

Ohio 12, Bowling Green 4

The Bobcats (7-18, 3-3 MAC) picked up a big series win this weekend over the Falcons (9-14, 4-2 MAC) as they held a 10-3 lead after four innings of play. With the win, the Green and White are now two games back of the MAC-leading Cardinals. There was obviously no shortage of offense from the ‘Cats as Aaron Levy and Michael Richardson each had three hits and a RBI while Edward Kutt IV dominated on the mound with eight strikeouts, three hits, a walk and an earned run allowed in six innings of work. Mike Malewitz and Ty Suntken each had a pair of hits for the Falcons 13 strikeouts and nine stranded runners doomed the offense. Ohio hosts Morehead State on Tuesday while BG hosts Dayton on Wednesday.
