The Iowa baseball team will hit the road for its annual spring-break trip beginning Saturday.

The Hawkeyes (3-6) will embark on a stretch of seven games in seven days. The schedule will likely create an opportunity for a majority of the roster to see action — especially the pitching staff.

Iowa will play Georgetown (8-2) to on Saturday afternoon, and left-hander Jarred Hippen (1-1, 3.86 ERA) is expected to start. Hippen has thrown a team-high 21 innings.

A trio of freshmen has led the Hawkeye offense through the first three weeks of the season.

Shortstop Jake Yacinich is hitting .391, designated hitter Ryan Rumpf is batting .385 with 8 RBIs, and outfielder Kris Goodman has a .350 average with two doubles.

Other notable opponents for the Hawkeyes are Illinois State (7-3), Eastern Illinois (4-6), and Jacksonville State (2-7).
