Bohnenkamp: Missed Opportunities Cost Iowa Baseball

IOWA CITY, Iowa – Izaya Fullard stood on third base, driven there by the double from Brendan Sher.

Two runners on, no one out, sixth inning, Iowa down by two runs after once being down by six.

These innings are what May is about and, for the Hawkeyes, it meant so much.

Then, just like that, the inning was over.

Ben Wilmes, a strikeout swinging.

Brett McCleary, a strikeout looking.

Kyle Huckstorf, a strikeout looking.

Three innings remained, but really, it was game over.

Iowa’s 10-6 loss to Purdue on Saturday at Duane Banks Field was one of those games a team has to win in May if it wants to have a shot at the NCAA tournament.
