The Big Ten Tournament says goodbye to Iowa

Thursday, Penn State defeated the Iowa Hawkeyes 5-3 kicking them out of the tournament.

Iowa had a 3-0 in the 4th inning. As I walked by Ray, an Iowa fan Brian DeCaussin introduced me to, I said something like, “Iowa’s doin’ all right.”. Without a beat, he said, “Just wait, I’ve seen too many Iowa games to get comfortable with this kind of lead.”

The Penn State rally scores three to tie in the 4th inning

Just two minutes later, Penn State had scored two runs on a Cory Wine triple. Two more minutes later, they scored another. Penn State scored two more in the 7th to take the lead for good.

Sorry, Ray.

Dusty Napoleon

By the way, Iowa’s firstbaseman is junior Dusty Napoleon. Central Illinois folks might recognize Napoleon because he played for the Danville Dans. An added bonus… he also plays catcher.
