Bowling Green's baseball team has played well during the second half of the season.
The Falcons are striving to carry that momentum into the Mid-American Conference tournament.
They start the tournament Wednesday at 1 p.m. when they face Kent State at All Pro Freight Stadium in Avon.
The Falcons, 25-25 overall, are the No. 5 seed for the tournament. They were third in the MAC East with a 15-12 mark.
Kent (32-21, 16-11) was second in the East and is the No. 4 seed.
"We feel good about the way we're playing," BG senior T.J. Losby said. "We have a lot of confidence. Guys are getting the job done."
The Falcons are 19-9 in their last 28 games, and won six of their final seven MAC series.
"We're playing good baseball," BG coach Danny Schmitz said. "I don't know if we're playing great. Earlier in the year, we were playing some pretty good baseball.

Bowling Green’s baseball team moved another step forward off the field Saturday afternoon.
And the Falcons will eventually benefit on the field, too.
Former Falcon star Gary Haas — a member of the BGSU Athletics Hall of Fame —donated $1 million to the BG baseball program.
The Perrysburg resident’s donation was announced prior to the Falcons’ game against Ohio at Steller Field.
The gift is the largest ever for the baseball program and is the biggest ever given to the athletics department by a former athlete.
“I worked hard for what I’ve got and now it’s time for me to give back,” said Haas, a four-year standout shortstop for the Falcons from 1971-74.
He was a member of BG’s Mid-American Conference championship team and NCAA regional team in 1972. The team fell one win shy of advancing to the College World Series.

Home-and-home series against Miami and Ohio State, and an outdoor game against Robert Morris at Fifth Third Field in Toledo highlight Bowling Green's nonleague hockey schedule next season.
The Falcons open the season against Miami in a Friday-Sunday series that starts Oct. 10 in the Ice Arena and finishes Oct. 12 in Oxford.
BG plays OSU Nov. 14-15.
The Falcons, Miami and OSU all were members of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association, which broke up after the 2012-13 season when college hockey's massive realignment took affect.
BG's outdoor game is Jan. 3 at noon and the home-and-home series concludes the next night at Robert Morris.
The Falcons' eight-game nonleague schedule also includes a two-game series at Clarkson Oct. 24-25.
The Falcons' 36-game regular-season schedule consists of 16 home games, 19 road games and the neutral-site game at Toledo, which is BG's home game.

The tradition and legacy of Bowling Green Falcon women's basketball has been passed on for years from the graduating seniors to the upcoming senior class.
Bowling Green has had numerous talented players come through the program, but it's learning how to win and how to be champions that make the difference.
This past season when the Falcons were 30-5, seniors Alexis Rogers, Jillian Halfhill and Jill Stein led the way.
''They understand what you need to do to be successful, on and off the court. They understand what you need to do to be successful in the locker room as well. That's a component that is sometimes lost in the shuffle of scoring, rebounding, assists,'' BG head coach Jennifer Roos said. ''They know what it's like to be a champion on the court, in the classroom, and in the locker room. For us to be successful we needed all three of those pieces.''
The mantle of responsibility has now been passed to Jasmine Matthews and Deborah Hoekstra, BG's two 2014-15 seniors.

To meet the standards of Dino Babers and to become ‘‘Falcon Fast’’ it’s going to take a lot of hard work for the Bowling Green Falcon football team.
With less than four months before the season-opener at Western Kentucky on Aug. 29, Babers is looking for improvement in all areas.
Babers was hired in December to replace Dave Clawson, who took a similar position at Wake Forest. The Falcons were 10-4 last season, capturing the Mid-American Conference championship with a victory over previously undefeated Northern Illinois.
‘‘We need to stay healthy throughout the year ... Our starting 22 is really good, but there are only a couple of positions where we can go past that and survive,’’ Babers said. ‘‘If we get the wrong injuries in the wrong places, we’ll be like any other football team.’’
