SAN ANTONIO, TX – The University of Iowa baseball team was defeated by Notre Dame Fighting Irish, 16-2, Saturday at the Baseball Express Collegiate Classic in San Antonio, TX. The Hawkeyes fall to 5-3, while Notre Dame raised its record to 4-5.
Notre Dame scored early and often, putting up two or more runs in six of eight innings. In the bottom of the first, the Irish put a pair of run on the board with out a hit. Hawkeye starter Austin Seward hit three of the first four batters he faced, then issued a walk, a sacrifice fly and a wild pitch.
The Hawkeyes came back to tie things up in the top of the second, when Dusty Napoleon led off with a single up the middle, moved to third on an RBI double from Brian Burmester, then scored on an RBI groundout off the bat of Jeff Engel. Burmester later scored on an infield single from Jason White.
From then on, it was all Notre Dame. They took a 4-2 lead in the bottom of the second, then added three in the third, three in the fifth, two in the sixth and four in the seventh. Leftfielder Danny Dressman and catcher Cody Rizzo each had five RBIs for the Irish.
Seward (1-2) took the loss for Iowa, while Jeff Manship (1-0) picked up the win.
Iowa returns to action tomorrow with a game against Louisiana-Lafayette. First pitch is scheduled for 11 a.m.
