Hawkeyes Battle to Tie in Fall Exhibition Opener
Sept. 25, 2011
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The Iowa baseball team and Nebraska-Omaha battled to a 4-4 tie in a scheduled 14-inning exhibition Sunday afternoon at Duane Banks Field.
Iowa head coach Jack Dahm say a lot of positives for the team's first competition of the fall.
"I thought some of our pitchers really threw the ball well," said Dahm. "I was excited to see how our freshman handled their first outside competition; they didn't seem overwhelmed by any means. I also thought we made some tremendous defensive plays, which is going to be important for us. We need to do a better job of executing with guys in scoring position; that's an area we need to continue to improve."
Iowa returns to action Oct. 8-9 when the Hawkeyes travel to Columbia, Mo., to face Missouri is a two-game exhibition series.
