Peyton's complete game shut-out powers Iowa past #19 Indiana

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

 Junior Tyler Peyton got the win and drove in both runs as Iowa dropped #19 Indiana 2-0 in their Big Ten conference opener.

Peyton was brilliant on the mound pitching a complete game shut-out. He struck out 5 and allowed just 5 hits.

At the plate, he grounded into a fielders' choice to shortstop, allowing Eric Toole to score from third giving Iowa a 1-0 edge in the first. In the 6th, Peyton hit a hard shot on the ground that would get mishandled at short, Nick Day scored from second after the ball was dropped on a bang, bang play at the plate.

The Hawkeyes and Hoosiers meet for game 2 of a 3 game series on Saturday at 2 pm.
