30-16, Iowa over Indiana. Normally, a win by two touchdowns is a good day on the gridiron for Hawkeyes football. Only this time around, that score belongs to Iowa baseball, and the score alone doesn’t even tell half the story.

On Thursday night, the Hoosiers rolled into Iowa City and punched the Hawkeyes in the mouth. After 3 innings, Indiana had already knocked in 13 earned runs and led by a score of 13-2.

Then, things started to turn for the Hawkeyes with the bat of Kyle Huckstorf. During a 10-run 4th inning, Huckstorf hit a pair of 3-run home runs to get back into the game.

He wasn’t done there. Huckstorf came back to the plate in a key moment in the bottom of the 5th inning and delivered a big fly. This time, it was a go-ahead grand slam and Huckstorf’s 3rd home run of the night.

When it was all said and done, Huckstorf finished 6-for-7 with 3 home runs, 4 runs scored and 12 RBI. His 6 hits tie the single-game record in the B1G while his 12 RBI stand alone as a new single-game record for the conference. Iowa also finished with a 30-16 win, the program’s most runs scored in a B1G game.

“This is going to be the day that I take with me until I die,” said Huckstorf after the win. “It will be stories that live on forever and I’ll have fun with it.”
