Senior shortstop Brittany Gomez retreated back to first base after a short pop up in the infield. Gomez didn’t have any stolen bases in the 7-0 win against IUPUI on Feb. 12.

Iowa State woke up to less-than-desirable results this morning.

The Cyclones couldn’t seem to find their stride in their Saturday morning bout against Boston College (10-8, 0-0 Atlantic Coast) as they ended up losing in five innings, 10-1. in Macon, Ga. 

Nothing seemed to be going right for the Cyclones, as they could only achieve two hits from Brittany Gomez and Kelsey McFarland. Iowa State would only generate offense in the first inning, as McFarland hit in Cathlin Bingham, who had been walked earlier in the inning.

Iowa State had three errors Saturday, as Boston College managed to score six unearned runs.

Iowa State continues to search a solution on the mound, as the pitching staff gave up nine hits and three home runs in the game. During the five innings, the Cyclones cycled through four pitchers.

This didn’t stop the Boston College onslaught that got off to a quick 4-1 lead in the first inning, and then put the Cyclones away in the bottom of the fourth with a big five-hit, six-run inning.

The Cyclones now must wait for the rest of the 2016 Black and Orange Challenge to play out today to find out who their next opponent is.

Iowa State will play one game Sunday. The start time has yet to be announced.
