Invasion of Kentucky! (Part 1)

Bowling Green started out their season this year taking on two well-established baseball teams from the state of Kentucky, and started off playing Louisville (birthplace of yours truly) in a three game series, with a single game played on Friday and a double-header Saturday.

The results were as followed,

Game 1
Louisville: 13
Bowling Green: 1

Game 1
Louisville: 5
Bowling Green: 2

Game 2 (F/10)
Louisville: 8
Bowling Green: 7

As I'm writing this Louisville is currently 11-0 this season, and ranked 8th in the nation. They have outscored opponents by a combined score of 85 - 35, so aside from our opening 13-1 loss, these can be considered good losses (if there is such a thing). As a matter of fact, the seven runs scored by BG in game one of Saturday's double header is the most runs given up so far by the Cardinals.

All in all, playing competition like this can only help prepare the team for when the MAC season rolls around, because in all honesty there's no way Bowling Green is going to make it to the NCAA's unless they win the MAC tournament in May.
