The Tigers (31-21, 13-13 ACC) jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the top of the first inning, highlighted by Steve Wilkerson's two-run single, but the Fighting Irish (19-31, 6-21 ACC) responded with three runs in bottom of the first inning and another run in the second inning to take the lead. Notre Dame added two runs in the third inning and hit three homers, including one by Youngdahl, to score four runs in the fifth inning.
Starter Scott Kerrigan (3-1) earned the win by yielding just three hits, three runs (two earned) and two walks with two strikeouts in 8.0 innings pitched.
