Tale of the Tape: Team Stats – Notre Dame vs. Oklahoma

·1 min read

After a solid win over Texas in its College World Series opener, Notre Dame takes on Oklahoma next. There’s one area in which the Irish have a clear advantage, and that’s pitching. With how many runs the Sooners have given up, it’s a wonder they’ve gotten this far. Since the stakes are higher with each passing day now, teams are shortening up their rotations, and that only can mean good news for the Irish.

What the Sooners lack in pitching, they make up for it with hitting, and there’s plenty of that. Even more so, this is a team you don’t want to put on base because it’s one of the best in the country at stealing them. It goes without saying that the Irish’s pitchers will have to keep a close eye on the baserunners whenever they have to pitch out of the stretch. Hopefully, Link Jarrett is making that clear.
