As it happens: Ohio-Miami baseball liveblog

Posted up at Bob Wren Stadium for the Ohio-Miami baseball game. It’s senior day, and the ‘Cats need a win, and for Buffalo to sweep Bowling Green in a doubleheader to get the last spot in the MAC tourney. Keep it here for updates.

3:00- Scoreboard watching is going to be the theme today, as the Bobcats hopes at a MAC tourney appearance lies in the hands of the Buffalo Bulls. Game one is currently tied 2-2 in the bottom of the 8th.

3:07- As first pitch is thrown, the team is definitely pumped for this one. Whole team is on the edge of the dugout being very vocal.

3:12- About as bad of a start that you could ask for. A hit batter, error by third baseman Dan Ward, a wild pitch, and then a home run by Kyle Weldon has Miami up 3-0 after three batters.

3:19- Bobcats are going to have to break out the bats, problem is Miami has saved pitcher Brooks Fiala for today. He’s 6-4 with a 2.43 ERA.

3:26- Leadoff single by Ethan Newton, but the Bobcats can’t make a rally out of it. 3-0 after one inning.

3:36- I just found out that Ohio is one of three MAC teams that has lights at their field. That’s pretty bad that 75% of a Division I conference cannot play night games.

3:46- After retiring 8 straight Bobcats, Fiala gives up a double to Ethan Newton. Other than Newton, no one seems to be able to get good contact of of him.

3:48- Two out lightning has begun. After the Newton double, Gecewich singles him home. 3-1 Miami in the bottom of the third.

3:51- Barnes single and a bobble by the right fielder Ryan Curl allows Gecewich to move up to third.

3:55- Moulton has settled down since his shaky first. Getting a lot of outs on the ground.

3:59- Miami running at will on the Bobcats. A big strikeout of Edington keeps the score 3-1.

4:05- Doubles by Jensen Painter and Dan Ward cut it down to 3-2. Buffalo and Bowling Green going to the bottom of the 12th in the first game of their twinbill still tied at 2.

4:11- Quite the turn of events. Moments after a walk-off home run by Buffalo, a dropped fly ball in center by Miami allows the tying run to score. Fiala is done after 3.2 innings.

4:26- Halfway home at the Wren. Setting up for a good finish.

4:30- Bobcats able to manufacture a run to get the lead. Single by Bryan Barnes, a sac bunt by Kory Burkhart, then a clutch single by Taylor Emody puts Ohio up 4-3.

4:47- Not good news for the Bobcats as Bowling Green is up 2-0 on Buffalo early.

4:50- Huge play by the Bobcats defense stopping a squeeze play then getting the 5-4-3 DP to get out of the jam. Moulton continues to get the big outs.

5:01- Sorry folks but the laptop is dying. Look to my Twitter for updates the rest of the way. Recap will be on tonight.
