Friday's Game Suspended By Rain

April 22, 2005

IOWA CITY – The University of Iowa baseball team’s game with Penn State Friday night was suspended due to rain in the top of the seventh inning. Iowa was leading 5-4 in the game, which will be picked up tomorrow at noon.

Hawkeye starter Luke O’Loughlin had a shaky first inning, giving up four runs before settling into a groove. The junior got the leadoff hitter to ground out to short, then gave up six consecutive hits before a pop foul and groundout to first ended the onslaught.

Iowa came right back in the bottom half of the opening frame, with Nate Price and Skyler Moss opening up with singles, then coming home on a double off the bat of Nate Yoho to cut the lead to 4-2.

Yoho led off the bottom of the third with another double, moved to third on a flyout to right, then scored on an RBI groundout from Dusty Napoleon.

The Hawkeyes tied the game in the bottom of the sixth when Andy Cox ripped a double off the wall and scored on a base hit from Jason White. Iowa took a 5-4 lead when Skyler Moss reached on an error, scoring White from second.
