Notre Dame takes a few for the team, wins again at Statesboro Regional

It hasn’t been easy for the Irish so far, but you wouldn’t know that by the results. Once again, Notre Dame scored late and held off their opponent, this time host Georgia Southern sensing the Irish’s luck.

After falling behind by a run early, the Irish hit two runs, the two solo homers of Jack Zyska and Jack Brannigan. Georgia Southern would then battle to take a 4-2 after the start of the sixth. The Irish Bats responded once again in the bottom of the inning as Zack Prajzner kicked off a two-run home game to tie the score at four.

The Irish then scored two more points at the end of the seventh in an unconventional way. Consecutive shots with the bases loaded marked the starting points for the Irish, 6-4.

Matt Bedford would then struggle but jack findlay has his back. Bedford allowed back-to-back singles to put the runners first and third. Findlay picked it up and quickly retired back-to-back batters and got ground to end the inning. It was not the end of Findlay’s brilliance, he would then stop Georgia Southern in the top of the ninth, securing the Irish victory, 6-4.

Link Jarrett has now led this team to a victory of a return to the Super Regionals, NCAA Baseball’s version of the “Sweet 16” for the second consecutive season.
