Iowa Defeats Irish

Notre Dame traveled down to Florida for the first of three weekends down in the Sunshine State. Many would expect blue skies. However, the Irish not only caught a vicious rainstorm but a hot-hitting Iowa team.

Notre Dame and Iowa were caught up in a five-hour rainstorm but it didn't change the final outcome. The Hawkeyes routed the Irish 8-1 down in Deland, Florida at the Stetson Invitational. The loss sends the Irish to 2-6 on the year. Tomorrow, Notre Dame will battle Nebraska at 1 PM.

In a rain-shortened contest, Notre Dame allowed Iowa to score in five of the first six innings. It caused the Hawkeyes to control an 8-0 lead. Junior left-hander Wade Korpi took the loss, sending him to 1-2 on the year. He allowed six runs (three earned) on eight hits in 4.1 innings of work. Iowa's Steve Turnbill earned the win, taking a no-hitter into the fifth inning. The Irish were able to manage only three hits in the contest.
