    Box Score

    CAROL STREAM, Ill.-- Northwestern dropped the opening game of its doubleheader against Iowa Saturday, 2-1, at Lee Pfund Stadium in Carol Stream, Ill.

    Luke Farrell settled down after allowing a first-inning run Saturday. The right-hander scattered three hits and fanned nine for the second straight start. He only issued one walk, but did not factor in the decision.

    Iowa plated the go-ahead run in the top of the eighth inning off NU reliever Etahn Bramschreiber. Keith Brand hit a single and later scored on an infield single off the bat of Kris Goodman.

    Northwestern rallied in the bottom of the ninth with runners at the corners and two out, but a well-struck fly ball to center field ended the ballgame.

    Game two will get underway at 2:20 p.m. CT.
