Everything changed in the sixth inning of Sunday's 10-1 loss to Miami.

Before first pitch of Ohio baseball’s 5-3 win over the Akron Zips on Sunday, Bobcat first baseman Jake Madsen was a hit a away from becoming the Bobcats all-time hits leader, and he was as nervous as he could be before he became Ohio’s hits king with 270.

With the game deadlocked at 0-0 in the bottom of the ninth inning, Tyler Wells stepped to the plate. His teammate Jake Madsen stood on second base representing the winning run with only one out in the inning.
