Schultz has been a dumpster fire lately. He was looking really good earlier in the season.

Connor Schultz lasts just 2/3 of an inning. Good grief.

Davitt comes in to pitch

Connor throws 30 pitches and gives up 2 earned runs off of 4 hits. He had 1 strike out.

Davitt records the final out.


2-0 Michigan State, heading to the 2nd inning

How much of an advantage is it for MSU to not name a starter until game time? I would imagine the Iowa staff is then scrambling a bit to give the Hawks a scouting report on the MSU pitcher.

MSU's LHP Nick Powers ends up starting the game; he is 3-6 on the season with a 6.18 ERA

Trickery? The runner simply thought he no one was paying attention to third base and he could make it easily.

Nice to see the offense come alive! It was off one of their better relief pitchers.
