Ball State 5, Northern Illinois 1: At Muncie, Indiana, it looked as if the Huskies (14-14, 5-3 MAC) were going to build off its exciting win yesterday as Caitlyn Shumaker, batting leadoff, delivered a solo home run in to kick off the first inning.

Ball State (16-13, 6-2 MAC) had other plans though as, in their turn to bat, rocketed off two home runs for five RBI on pitcher Danielle Stewart to take a 5-1 advantage.
