The Iowa Hawkeyes and Indiana Hoosiers played a comical college baseball game in Big Ten action on Thursday night in Iowa City.

Indiana led the game 13-2… and lost 30-16. Yes, an 11-run lead for the Hoosiers turned into a 14-run loss.

After trailing 13-2, the Hawkeyes outscored the Hoosiers 28-3 from the bottom of the fourth inning through the top of the ninth.

Center fielder Kyle Huckstorf led the comeback for Iowa with an unbelievable performance.

Huckstorf went 6-for-7 with three home runs and 12 runs batted in.

In Iowa’s 10-run fourth inning, Huckstorf hit two three-run homers. And with two outs in the bottom of the fifth, Huckstorf hit a grand slam to give Iowa a 16-14 lead.

These baseball teams even combined to outscore the Iowa-Indiana football game last September; Iowa won that game 34-6.

Iowa scored 30 runs while “only” having 23 hits. The Hawkeyes walked 12 times, with leadoff hitter Michael Seegers drawing five of those walks. The Indiana defense also committed four errors.
