Similar to the first game, APSU struck first, this time with two runs. After a double by Rolando Gautier, Ridge Smith followed with a two-bagger of his own to score him. P.J. Torres drove in Smith with a single, putting the Govs up 3-0.
Things would go downhill from there as the Hawkeyes scored 10 runs in the second inning, breaking the seal to lead 10-2.
In the fourth, the Govs continued to make a comeback by scoring a couple runs on a bases loaded walk and wild pitch. The next frame, APSU mounted a five-run charge, with a triple by Torres giving the Govs the lead to erase an eight point deficit.
As the innings wore on, the advantage went to Iowa’s pitching as it shut down the APSU bats. The Hawkeyes scored five runs in the next three innings to regain a comfortable lead.
Down by three, the Govs loaded the bases in the bottom of the ninth. However, they would get just one run on a wild pitch, with a fly out ending the game to hand APSU its second defeat of the day.
