IOWA CITY, Iowa – Redshirt senior Dylan Nedved tossed 5 1/3 no-hit innings, four Hawkeye hurlers scattered three hits and the University of Iowa’s offense stayed hot in a 12-0 series-clinching shutout victory over Indiana on Friday night at Duane Banks Field.
The win gives the Hawkeyes’ their sixth straight series win and eighth in nine weeks. Iowa improves to 32-17 overall and 16-7 in Big Ten play. The 16 league wins are the most in a “non-COVID” season since winning 19 games in 2015.
Nedved (6-2) earned his sixth victory after tossing six shutout innings, allowing one hit and fanning six. The Shawnee, Kansas, native didn’t allow his first hit until Josh Pyne’s single up the middle with one out in the sixth.
Iowa’s bullpen was stingy from there as Jared Simpson, Luke Llewellyn and Will Christophersen allowed two hits over the final three frames. Christophersen struck out two of the three batters he faced in the ninth.
Iowa’s offense continued its hot streak, scoring nine runs over the first five innings on nine hits and finishing with 12 in the game. Since trailing 13-2 through three innings on Thursday, the Hawkeyes have outscored the Hoosiers, 40-3.
The Hawkeyes will go for the weekend sweep Saturday, hosting the Hoosiers at 8:02 p.m. (CT). Iowa will honor its senior class prior to the contest and you can listen to this game on KDSN 1530AM.
