Bowling Green had lost its first game on Thursday, 20-15, to Central Michigan.

In the second game, Ball State jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the top of the second on five singles.

Len Elias tied it for BG in the third with a two-run homer.

But Ball State scored two runs in the fourth, one in the fifth and three in the sixth to take a commanding lead when the game was suspended.

“We couldn't get our offense going at all,” Bowling Green coach Danny Schmitz said.

Eric Bava and Doug Boone each had a home run and three RBIs for the Cardinals.

Elias had two hits for BG. Corey Loomis had three.
