SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa softball team will take the diamond against Iowa State for the second time this season on Wednesday afternoon in Ames.

The Hawkeyes broke several team records the last time the two squads faced each other, but this time, the game won't be played on neutral ground.

The two teams first met in Tempe, Ariz., on Feb. 18 in the Littlewood Classic. Iowa won the contest handily, plating 26 runs and giving up 5 in just five innings of play. The Hawkeyes broke school records in runs, hits (29), and total bases (41) in the blowout.

Head coach Marla Looper sent 19 batters to the plate in the top of the third alone, and the Black and Gold scored 13 runs on 13 hits in the inning.

The Cyclones have had a tough time rebounding during its Big 12 season; the Cardinal and Gold have lost 13 of their last 16 games and are 1-11 in the conference.
