Mother Nature cut short day two at the Mid-American Conference Tournament. The Miami RedHawks and the Central Michigan Chippewas made it to the bottom of the sixth inning before driving rain drove them off the field. Both the Kent State-Ball State and Bowling Green-Toledo games were postponed until Friday.

Game No. 5: No. 2 Buffalo 13 – No. 3 Northern Illinois 0

The Huskies saw their season go down in shambles Thursday, falling at the hands of Buffalo without pushing across a single run. Mike Burke started and finished the game on the mound for the Bulls, going the distance for a complete game shutout. Burke surrendered just four hits, struck out six and only walked four.

Game No. 6: No. 5 Miami (OH) 6 – No. 8 Central Michigan 5

After the original game was postponed due to rain, the RedHawks and Chippewas picked up at 9 a.m. Friday morning in the bottom of the sixth with the score tied at five. The rain from Thursday night washed away the offensive production with it as both teams failed to score for the remainder of regulation. But Miami’s Nate Bowles pinch hit in the bottom of the 10th and brought in the winning run on a walk-off single.
