Bobcats win in a walk-off in the MAC Tourney opener

Freshman Charlee Pond laced a run-scoring single to left in the bottom of the eighth inning to deliver a walk-off, 3-2 win for the Ohio Softball team over Ball State in the opening round of the 2019 Mid-American Conference Tournament on Wednesday.
