The Iowa softball team found its offensive swagger again when it took five innings to beat Drake, 18-0, in Des Moines Wednesday afternoon.

Kayla Massey tallied the win for the Hawkeyes with a 4-hit, 3-strikeout performance in five innings pitched.

The Hawkeyes (21-13) jumped out to an early lead with a 6-run second inning. They added 2 more in the third and another 6 in the fourth for a 14-0 lead. The final inning of the afternoon saw third-baser Malloree Grove hit a grand slam for Iowa’s final 4 runs. It was her only at-bat.

The Bulldogs (19-13) had three singles in their 4 hits. The other hit was a triple by Amy Pierce in the third inning.

Iowa will return home this weekend for a three-game series with Nebraska. The series will begin Friday with the first pitch scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
