Panthers Leave Seven On Base as They Fall to Notre Dame, 8-1

Published

The Pittsburgh Panthers lost to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, 8-1, on Saturday, May 14.

Junior right-hander Billy Corcoran started for the Panthers and gave up seven runs across 6.2 innings. Logan Evans was previously slated to start, but no reason was announced for the switch. 

The Panthers had several chances to score through the first five innings, but managed just one run, leaving six runners on base. 

Notre Dame took a 2-0 lead in the second inning as Corcoran allowed three consecutive hits, a single and two doubles.

Pitt manufactured a run in the third inning on a double steal: Jeffrey Wehler stole second base, and Notre Dame catcher David LaManna committed a throwing error that allowed center fielder Jordan Anderson to score from third. 

The Irish scored three runs in the fifth on a pair of RBI singles and a sacrifice fly. An RBI double and an RBI single in the sixth and seventh innings, respectively, gave the Irish a 7-1 lead.

Brady Devereux finished the game for the Panthers and allowed an unearned run on a sacrifice fly in the eighth, charged to catcher Tatem Levins on a throwing error.

Jack Anderson drew a one-out walk in the ninth, but sophomore pitcher Matt Bedford punched out three batters to seal the win for the Irish.

The loss moves the Panthers to 26-22 on the season, and 12-12 in the ACC.

Assuming Evans isn’t injured, he’ll start the series finale at 12 p.m. Sunday.

It’s a shame that this is the second year of the late explosion. Something is not right in Oakland with this seasons collapse. Baseball should be better at Pitt. Area has some talent but it never goes to Pitt.🤔
