Baseball falls to Creighton in slugfest

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa baseball team waited too long to mount a comeback Wednesday night, and the Hawkeyes (17-22) fell to Creighton (19-17), 15-10, in Omaha.

A six-run Bluejay first inning proved too steep a hill for the Hawkeyes to climb.

Senior pitcher Michael Jacobs started on the mound for Iowa and surrendered seven runs on six hits in one inning of work.

Creighton’s Carson Vitale victimized the Hawkeye pitching staff, going 5-for-5 with two home runs and eight RBIs.

Iowa scored all 10 of its runs in the final three innings, beginning with a six-run seventh and concluding with a three-run ninth.

Zach McCool, Tyson Blaser, and Ryan Durant all recorded two hits to lead the team offensively. McCool also drove in three runs.

Iowa head coach Jack Dahm was disappointed his team didn’t produce until Hawkeye fans came alive following Iowa’s first run in the seventh.

“When we scored that first run [in the seventh], did you hear our fans?” Dahm said in a postgame radio interview. “That re-energized our guys. We can’t wait for our fans to get in the game. You need to have that focus the entire time.”

The Hawkeyes will return home this weekend for a three-game series with Minnesota (17-24, 6-6). The first contest is set for a 6:05 p.m. start on Friday at Banks Field.
