The Iowa baseball team closes out the regular season at home this weekend against league-leader Michigan. At 16-10 the Hawks are in fourth and wrapped up a spot in the conference tournament this past weekend. With a four game sweep and some help Iowa could win the regular season title.
Iowa coach Jack Dahm says it’s a long shot, as they would have to win all four games to have a chance. Dahm says they aren’t going to worry about it, and just go out and play. Dahm says they had the same situation two years ago at Illinois, and ended up winning three out of four and ended up a half game out of first.
After starting the Big Ten race 16-1, Michigan has stumbled the past couple of weeks and the Wolverines have dropped five of their last seven. Dahm says the Wolverines are struggling, but will get themselves ready to go and make it a tough challenge. The series begins with a single game on Friday night.
