    Grand slam for Ball State, I think. 4-2 Cards now.

    Three run shot.  One run scored earlier on a throw through to second.

    Miami loses game one 4-2. Both teams had four hits. If we lose this next game, could be quite the issue trying to win the MAC with no tournament.

    Things arent going well in game 2
  • skinsskins Wealthy Alum
    Looks like Ball State is deserving as well though...they have not lost in MAC???

    Yeah...they 'rallied'....think this group will be fine....no shame in dropping a close one to BSU, with this win.

    I assume this was a walk-off HR?

    Watched both of these on Miami TV today with Bake calling the plays. Looked like a bad time for a two game lethargic performance until the bottom of the 7th. They teed off on a tired reliever and then Lilly Wilmot drove a one out 1-1 pitch over the left field wall for a walk off grand slam - saving the day for Miami. The HR came off the first game’s starting pitcher who had stuffed the bats down Miami’s throats for 7 innings. Sweet revenge!

    Next 12 are on the road including 2 at Ball State a week from today.  Miami is now 17-1 in conference play and Ball State is 16-1.  Ball State had a home game against Kent State rained out and not sure if the game will be made up.
  • Bash_RiprockBash_Riprock Wealthy Alum
    Unfortunately Courtney Vierstra took the loss in Game 1. She held Ball State hitless for the first four innings, but gave up all four hits and all four runs in the 5th.
  • Bash_RiprockBash_Riprock Wealthy Alum
    Interesting comparison....

    Miami is 10-6 in non-conference games and 4-4 against Power 5 conference teams (Mississippi State, Tennessee, Georgia Tech, Georgia, and Louisville).

    Ball State is 5-10 in non-conference games and 0-1 against Power 5 conference teams (Mississippi State).

    Doubleheader sweep! 9-0 and 8-0. Both games were decided by mercy rule. Vierstra threw a 6 inning no-hitter in game 1. Pratt and Turner combined for a 5 inning one-hitter in game 2.

    Looks like the MAC title should come down to next week's double header against Ball State again.

    Any idea what the tie-breaker after head-to-head is?
