CARY, North Carolina -- The Notre Dame baseball team couldn't get the bats going behind Peter Solomon and dropped an 8-0 decision to UMass Lowell on Saturday afternoon at the USA Baseball-Irish Classic.

Solomon held the River Hawks to one hit over the first six innings, but the one hurt as it was a two-run home run and the Irish trailed 3-0 when Solomon exited. He ended up being responsible for four earned while striking out eight.

Key Innings

Top First
The River Hawks struck first without recording a hit. Chris Sharpe led off the game with a walk, then stole second and advanced to third on a wild pitch. After another walk, Solomon got Steve Passatempo to pop out before Austin Young scored Sharpe on a sac fly to left giving UMass Lowell a 1-0 lead after one.

Top Third
UMass Lowell got its first hit off Solomon and made it count. Oscar Marchena walked to start the inning, then Passatempo sent one beyond the left field wall to make it 3-0.

Top Seventh
UML extended the lead in the seventh. Ben Prada started the inning with a single to left, then Sharpe singled up the middle. Cole Daily got to the ball, but the Irish shortstop didn't have a play. Marchena laid down a sacrifice bunt to move up the runners, then Passatempo drilled a one-hopper just out of reach of the third baseman, Kyle Fiala, to score a pair and make it 5-0 River Hawks.
