Baseball: Ohio looks to get back on track against Bowling Green

Ohio is coming off of a dreadful weekend where it dropped three-straight games against Southern Illinois and then a mid-week matchup with Kentucky. Ohio (2-9) will attempt to get back on track with its first Mid-American Conference weekend series of the year. 

Starting Friday, Ohio will play three against Bowling Green (2-8) as both teams will work to improve upon their two victories to start the season. Bowling Green was also on the wrong side of a four-game sweep last weekend versus Evansville.
