Rain Halts Hawkeyes Win Streak

The Iowa Hawkeyes baseball team is soaring, winning their last 12 consecutive games. Rain, however, grounded the team this Sunday and prevented the team from further extending its winning streak. The series finale with rival Indiana was canceled on Sunday when storms hit Banks Field with the Hawkeyes leading 1-0. The game will not be made up. This from the Daily Iowan:

Instead of runs around the bases, the Hawkeyes raced makeshift boats in puddles in front of their dugout. Rather than stolen base slides, director of baseball operations Matt Haddy dove across the slick tarp covering the infield after an almost two-hour rain delay.
