IOWA CITY, Iowa – Less than 12 hours after having arguably the greatest offensive performance in the history of the Iowa baseball program, Kyle Huckstorf looked back at a night that he will remember forever.
The sophomore centerfielder was the guest on Friday’s episode of the Hawk Fanatic radio show and podcast, and he spent about 25 minutes talking about his performance, which included belting three home runs, including a grand slam, and driving in a Big Ten record 12 runs during Iowa’s 30-16 come-from-behind victory over Indiana on Thursday at Duane Banks Field.
Iowa trailed 13-2 after three innings, but then outscored Indiana 28-3 thanks largely to Huckstorf’s productivity at the plate.
The Wisconsin native also made a spectacular diving catch in the right-centerfield gap to end the fourth inning.
Iowa improved to 31-17 oveall and 15-7 in the Big Ten with the win and is currently in third place in the conference standings behind Maryland an Rutgers with two games against Indiana left to play.
Huckstorf also talked about growing up in Wisconsin as a Badger fan and now playing for a rival Big Ten school. He said his mother has both a Wisconsin and an Iowa sticker on her car.
His interview starts approximately 45 minutes into the podcast.
