NOTRE DAME, Ind. -­ Notre Dame was only one out away from a berth into the 2010 BIG EAST Tournament in each of its first two games of the series with No. 10 Louisville, but the Cardinals rallied each time. Louisville clearly rode that momentum and knocked off the Irish, 13-3, in the season finale from Frank Eck Stadium Saturday afternoon. Notre Dame entered today's doubleheader in need of one victory or a West Virginia loss to Villanova to reach postseason, but mere minutes following the Irish loss in today's opener, the Mountaineers got a walk-off, three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning to upend Villanova, 3-2.

Justin Amlung handcuffed Notre Dame over 6.0 shutout innings. The right-handed hurler limited the Irish to just four hits, all singles, and improved to 5-1 on the campaign. Amlung struck out six and did not walk a batter.

Irish senior Eric Maust was charged with the defeat and dropped to 1-6 on the year. He yielded three runs, two earned, on six hits in 3.1 innings of work. Maust walked one and struck out one.

With Notre Dame still within range, trailing 4-0, Louisville put the game away with three runs in the six and six more in the seventh inning to push its lead to 13-0.

The Irish did plate a run in the seventh inning and two more in the ninth to close the scoring. Senior centerfielder David Mills went 2-for-4 with a run scored. Senior right fielder Billy Boockford went 2-for-4 with two RBI. Senior Ryne Intlekofer entered the game in the seventh hit and went 2-for-2 with a double.

Adam Duval paced the Cardinals attack with three hits, including a double and two home runs, and three RBI. Cade Stallings and Drew Haynes each also added three hits.

Louisville grabbed a first inning 1-0 lead on Maust. Duval, who delivered a two-out, game-winning two-run triple in the Cardinals¹ last at bat of game one, doubled with one out and coasted home on Andrew Clark¹s ensuing double.

Louisville pushed its lead to 2-0 with an unearned run that scored on Notre Dame shortstop Mick Doyle¹s errant throw to first base.

After the Cardinals made it 3-0 on Stallings RBI single, Duval struck again in the fifth. The Louisville second baseman stroked his 11th home run of the year off the scoreboard in left field.

After Amlung retired senior Ryan Connolly to open the game, freshman second baseman Frank Desico and junior designated hitter David Casey followed with back-to-back singles, but Amlung got out of the jam when senior first baseman Casey Martin grounded into a 4-3 double play.

Notre Dame threatened again in its half of the fifth inning. Trailing 4-0, Mills and Boockford recorded back-to-back singles to open the frame, but Amlung got freshman catcher Joe Hudson to foul out. Junior third baseman Greg Sherry then struck out looking on a 3-2 pitch and Jeff Arnold gunned down Boockford trying to steal to complete the inning-ending strike Oeem out, throw Oeem out double play.

The defeat brings an end to the career of 12 Notre Dame seniors, including Mills, Matt Grosso, Connolly, Brayden Ashdown, Herman Petzold, Maust, Boockford, Steven Mazur, Intlekofer, Will Harford, Martin and Bill Warrender.
