  • The Irish still lead the overall series with the Huskies, 23-12-1, which includes a 13-7 mark at Frank Eck Stadium.
  • The Huskies broke the 0-0 tie in the seventh inning when George Springer scored on a sacrifice fly by Ryan Fuller.
  • The Irish responded in the bottom frame when Greg Sherry hit an RBI single, driving Matt Grosso home. The RBI was Sherry's seventh and fourth in the last three games.

  • Senior pitcher Brian Dupra went 7.1 innings for Notre Dame and gave up two earned runs on six hits. He recorded four strikeouts in the game while walking three Huskies.
  • Freshman Sean Fitzgerald pitched 1.2 innings of relief, giving up one run while striking out two.
  • Dupra (2-3) gave up his first earned run in BIG EAST play in the seventh inning. He had gone 20.1 innings without giving up a run. It is also the first earned run Dupra has allowed in the seventh inning.
  • Connecticut's starter Matt Barnes (6-2) did not give up a hit through 3.2 innings. Trey Mancini recorded the first hit for the Irish on the day in the fourth inning with a single to center. Barnes finished the day with 105 pitches in 7.1 innings. He gave up just the one earned run while striking out five.
  • Notre Dame sophomore catcher Joe Hudson threw out two Husky base runners on the night.
  • Freshman Eric Jagielo extended his hitting streak to eight games with his eighth inning infield single.
  • First baseman Trey Mancini now has a four game hitting streak, which is his longest of the season.
