MSU dropped the middle game of a three-game set to Iowa on Saturday afternoon, leaving 13 runners on base in a 5-1 loss to the Hawkeyes. The loss denies Michigan State its first three-game winning streak of the season.
Michigan State got another masterful pitching performance from senior Kelly Smith and and RBI single from Stephanie Sanders in the sixth inning to post a 1-0 victory over Iowa on the road on Friday evening. Smith twirled a three-hitter with eight strikeouts and just one walk just two days after tossing her first career no-hitter on Wednesday.
Senior Kelly Smith threw the 20th no-hitter in school history, while junior Carly Nielsen came off the bench to hit a pinch-hit home run in the bottom of the sixth inning as Michigan State earned a 1-0 non-conference win over Eastern Michigan.
