Baseball wins against Ohio after loss to Ball State

DeKALB — After being sent to the loser’s bracket following a loss to Ball State Thursday, the baseball team kept their conference title hopes alive with a comeback victory over Ohio on Friday.

The Huskies were sent to the loser’s bracket with a 10-4 loss to Ball State thanks to a dominant performance by Drew Jameson, sophomore Mid-American Conference Pitcher of the Year.

NIU rebounded the following day with a comeback 6-3 victory over the Ohio Bobcats to advance to the loser’s bracket final with a chance to play in the championship game later today.

Head Coach Mike Kunigonis said their game against the Bobcats was a matter of matching wills with Ohio, who had played a six hour, twenty minute game just before.
