SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa baseball team opened the 2010 season 1-1 on Feb. 20 in Clarksville, Tenn.

The Hawkeyes defeated Illinois State, 19-11, then fell to Austin Peay, 13-8, during their weekend double-header.

Against Illinois State, Iowa’s bats exploded for 19 runs in the game’s final four innings. Sophomore Mike McQuillan led the Hawkeye comeback, knocking in seven runs and homering twice — one of which was a grand slam.

Then, Iowa outhit Austin Peay, 15-11, but couldn’t manage a victory.

McQuillan’s bat remained hot in the second game of the double header — he went 4-for-6 against the Governors.

Iowa center fielder Kurtis Muller extended the 12-game hitting streak he started at the end of the 2009 season, combining for five hits on the day.

The Hawkeyes will compete this weekend in the Big Ten/Big East Challenge in St. Petersburg, Fla.
