Iowa Scores 12 unanswered for win number 30

Sports

May 15th, 2022 by Chris Parks

EAST LANSING, Mich. – The University of Iowa baseball team spotted Michigan State a 2-0 lead before scoring 12 unanswered to post a 12-2 series-clinching victory on Saturday afternoon at McLane Baseball Stadium at Kobs Field.

The victory is the Hawkeyes’ 30th of the season, giving the program 30 or more wins in each of the seven “non-COVID” seasons under head coach Rick Heller.  It is Iowa’s fifth straight series victory (and seventh in eight weeks), moving the record to 30-16 overall, 14-6 in Big Ten play.

“It was great to get win No. 30, especially with all this team has gone through,” said Heller. “The injuries, fighting, scrapping, clawing with our early season schedule.  Getting to that number is great and even bigger yet, we’re still in the race.”

The Hawkeye bullpen was superb in the game, tossing 8 1/3 shutout innings.  Davitt, Ben Beutel and Cam Baumann scattered five hits, struck out five and issued two walks.  Beutel (3-0) earned the victory, while Baumann earned the three-inning save.

Iowa collected 12 hits in the game with Williams, Keaton Anthony and Hojnar tallying multi-hit games.  Williams was 2-for-3 with two RBIs and four runs scored, Anthony was 3-for-4 with his 20th double and Hojnar finished 2-for-4 with two runs scored.

Atlantic Head Coach Kathy Hobson: “This was our first time playing in this tournament and on this course. Very flat, big greens and a lot of places to get into trouble. Pleased with our team score on this course.
This tournament was also an opportunity to see two of the teams that we will complete against at regionals. We know we need to show improvement if we are going to reach our ultimate goal of advancing to state. We have a challenge ahead of us but if we all play like we are capable of playing we have a good opportunity.”
