    Irish Split at Pitt, Clinch Spot in Big East Tournament

    PITTSBURGH - Allen Greene, Jeff Perconte and Mike Amrhein each hit two home runs in the opener before Pittsburgh overcame a four-run deficit in the nightcap, as the Irish split a doubleheader with the Panthers, 11-8 and 6-7, in BIG EAST Conference action Sunday at Trees Field.

    Sunday's victory--coupled with Seton Hall's pair of home losses to St. John's--assures Notre Dame of at least a second-place finish in the National Division and a corresponding automatic berth in the six-team BIG EAST Tournament (May 13-16 in Norwich, Conn.). Third-place Seton Hall (13-11/.591) has concluded its conference season while Notre Dame (37-12 overall, 12-6 BIG EAST) can finish with a conference winning pct. of no lower than .571 (12-9).

    The top two teams in both the American and National Divisions--plus two "wild card" teams--will advance to the BIG EAST Tournament. The Irish maintain first place in the National Division over Rutgers (13-8), which split at home Sunday vs. Connecticut. Any combination of two Notre Dame wins/Rutgers losses in next weekend's action would give the Irish the division title (Notre Dame is scheduled to play three home games vs. Georgetown while Rutgers will play a three-game series at postseason hopeful Villanova).

    All but one of Notre Dame home runs in the opening game were solo shots--including leadoff homers by Perconte in the first, Greene in the second and Amrhein in the fifth. Greene followed Amrhein's blast moments later with a solo shot over the fence in straightaway center field. Perconte followed up a sixth-inning triple by J.J. Brock with his second home run of the game and, two batters later, Amrhein cleared the fence in left-center.

    Amrhein's pair of home runs moved him past former teammate Ryan Topham (34) into second place on the Notre Dame career home runs list (35), two behind all-time leader Frank Jacobs (1989-91). The last time three Irish players all homered twice in a game occurred in a 17-8 win at Bowling Green on April 6, 1995--when Topham, Craig DeSensi and George Restovich each sent two balls out of the park.

    Greene extended his hitting streak to 13 games while batting 6-for-9 with six RBI in the doubleheader. Peconte, a switch-hitting freshman who has been used in right field the past three games, again delivered after going 5-for-7 in Saturday's doubleheader at West Virginia. Perconte, who had just 24 at-bats prior to the weekend, batted 4-for-8 from the leadoff spot vs. Pitt and scored five runs.

    Notre Dame led 8-4 heading into the bottom of the seventh in the seven-inning opener but Pitt pushed across four runs to force extra innings. The Panthers had the winning run on second with two outs but Scott Lobaugh fouled out to rightfielder Perconte.

    The Irish pulled off the winning rally in the top of the eighth. Righthander Eric Rosing (0-6) led off the inning by hitting Perconte with a pitch and the speedy freshman stole second before moving onto third when backup catcher Kevin Knox threw the ball in to center field. Rosing struck out Randall Brooks and issued Mike Amrhein an intentional walk. An infield popup by Jeff Wagner was followed by a game-winning, linedrive single to left field by Brant Ust (who later extended his hitting streak to 15 games in the nightcap). Greene added a two-run triple down the rightfield line and Schmalz got out of a two-runners-on jam to give the Irish the opening win.

    Schmalz improved to 7-2 for the season while posting his sixth complete game. His 28 career victories rank fifth all-time at Notre Dame and his 50 career starts trail only Tom Price (56) and Brian Piotrowicz (52) in Irish history.

    Notre Dame opened the nightcap with a four-run top of the first, highlighted by an RBI single from Greene and a two-run double by Felker. Brock's single in the fourth plated Felker for a 5-1 Irish lead but Pitt scored three unearned runs in the bottom of the inning on Jason Workman's bases-loaded triple down the leftfield line.

    Pitt tied the game with a run in the fifth before the Irish surged back ahead in the seventh. Perconte again was hit by a pitch and moved up on Brooks' sacrifice bunt. Amrhein then smacked a triple over the head of stumbling rightfielder Chris Delsignore, with Amrhein putting on the brakes at third on the near inside-the-park home run. Wagner then hit a grounder to second baseman Sam Crowley, who nailed Amrhein trying to score in what would proved to be costly lost run for the Irish.

    Pitt won the nightcap in the bottom of the eighth, off freshman righthanded reliever Tom O'Hagan. Hot-hitting Steve Dickinson hit a one-out single and pinch-runner Jeff Sofran stole second before Delsignore sent a triple to the gap in right-center. Jason Oliver then hit a grounder to second (just as Wagner had moments earlier) but Todd Frye's throw was too high for the catcher Amrhein to handle, with pinchrunner Mark Mahalovich sliding home as the winning run.

    The Irish had two men on in the top of the ninth but Wagner hit into a game-ending fielder's choice.

    Starting sophomore lefthander Chris McKeown again pitched well, allowing just two earned runs (plus three unearned runs) on nine hits and walk over the first six innings (with six K's).

    NOTES: With the addition of Perconte (.359), every Notre Dame starter currently is hitting .316 or higher ... the Irish pushed their team batting average to .335, just ahead of the team record (.334, set in 1989 and '93) ... Notre Dame's home run total now stands at 55, just nine shy of tying the 1993 record total (64) ... 102 doubles and 29 triples have contributed to a .532 team slugging pct. that is well ahead of the Irish record (.519, in '93).
