Creighton held Air Force Academy All-American Matt Alexander to two hits in Tuesday's doubleheader. Unfortunately for the Jays, those two hits were game-changers.
Alexander's two-run double in the sixth inning of game one was the difference, while his RBI single in game two tied the game in the sixth. That single preceded Nathan Carter's three-run, game-winning homer as the Falcons swept a doubleheader from Creighton, 4-3 and 6-2, at the CU Sports Complex.
Scott Thornburg and Carson Vitale each had two hits in the first game for CU (18-17), while Bluejay teammates Elliot Soto and Jimmy Swift each had two hits in game two. Soto saw his eight-game hitting streak ended in the opening game.
Alexander and Carter finished the afternoon with three RBIs apiece to pace the 11-30 Falcons.
The Bluejays, who were swept in a Sunday doubleheader at Missouri State, had not been swept in back-to-back doubleheaders in the same season since 2003.
Former Creighton coach Jack Dahm will lead Iowa into Rosenblatt Stadium when the Bluejays host the Hawkeyes on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.
