Bobcats fall in three-game sweep at NIU

DEKALB, Ill. — The Bobcats scored nine total runs during a weekend series at Northern Illinois, and five of them came in the ninth inning.

Add in a pair of big first innings for the Huskies, and it’s easy to see how Ohio suffered a three-game sweep at Ralph McKinzie Field.

Ohio dropped all three games — 7-6, 5-2, and 5-1 — and saw its fledgling hopes of a conference season turnaround take a hit. The Bobcats (8-21, 3-6 MAC) fell to seventh place in the MAC standings with the sweep, while NIU (10-21, 6-3 MAC) rose to fourth.
