Jody Victor: Ohio State did not capitalize on two bases loaded situations early in the game and Northwestern put the game away with four runs in the sixth inning to defeat No. 24 Ohio State, 10-6, Sunday at Bill Davis Stadium. Despite the loss, Ohio State wins the series 2-1, and sits at first-place in the Big Ten with an 11-4 record. The Buckeyes are 31-10 overall.
Ohio State added an unearned run in the fifth to close the gap to 3-2, but the Wildcats scored four runs off two doubles and two walks to build a 7-2 lead and the home team simply wasn't able to recover. Northwestern improved to 12-26 with the win and 3-10 in the Big Ten Conference.
The Buckeyes have another big home week ahead of them. After a Wednesday game vs. Akron, Ohio State hosts Michigan for three games May 1-3. All three will be televised on the Big Ten Network.
