The Iowa softball team lost a pair of games to Purdue over the weekend, dropping its record in Big Ten play to 2-2.

The Boilermakers routed Iowa (19-14) on April 2, hitting three home runs in a 12-1 victory. The Hawkeyes scored first on Stephanie Ochoa’s RBI double, but Purdue dominated the rest of the game, ending it early with the 10-run rule. Iowa’s Chelsea Lyon took the loss, allowing eight earned runs on 10 hits in four innings.

The Hawkeyes put up more of a fight in Sunday’s game, but lost, 3-0. All three of the game’s runs came on a first-inning home run by Purdue’s Shelby Krammer. Iowa managed just three hits in the game and struck out seven times.

“We didn’t do what we needed to do offensively,” head coach Marla Looper said in a release. “We should have made some better adjustments, but didn’t, so the outcome didn’t end up in our direction.”

Hawkeye freshman Kayla Massey took the loss, giving up five hits and striking out four batters.
