Notre Dame Baseball Eliminated in Big East Tournament

Notre Dame lost to the number one seed Connecticut Huskies in the quarterfinals of the conference tournament. Our Irish were down 3-0 but came back to tie 3-3 in the 5th inning, but the Huskies were just too much. They scored 6 unanswered points to end the Irish’s sub-500 season. Left fielder Eric Jagielo was Notre Dame’s obvious player of the game going 2-3 with 2 RBIs. Yet, The Irish’s pitching killed them in the game. Starting pitcher Todd Miller went only 2 innings with 4 hits and 3 earned runs, not your ideal day as a starter.

That game was most likely the last of the season for ND. Ranked 152 in the latest RPI standings, Notre Dame’s only way of clinching a berth to the NCAA College World Series was to run the table at the Big East tournament. On a good note, the Irish are only graduating 12 seniors out of their 36 man roster. Which means they are a young team that will use the great experienced gained from the season and the tournament to build a successful program. Only time can tell how good the young boys will turn out to be.
