Watch: Notre Dame gets outs on two crazy plays against Oklahoma

The Irish are in a battle, as the Oklahoma offense had seemingly solved lefty hurler Aiden Tyrell. Then some very weird plays happened, both in the bottom of the fourth and both revolving around third baseman Jack Brannigan.

First, it was a fly-ball towards left fielder ryan cole, who dove but came up a bit short and the ball went past Cole to the wall. He quickly got up, gather himself, found Zack Prajzner, his cutoff man, who then fired to Brannigan and go the runner at third.

That wasn’t the end of the odd defensive plays during the inning. This time it was right fielder Brooks Coetzee gunning out the baserunner at third only to see Brannigan lose the ball on the tag, hit the Sooners third-base coach and the Irish third baseman quickly grabbed the ball and tagged out the runner.

It was two crazy sequences that happened which has kept the Irish deficit at just two runs as they continue to battle against Oklahoma in the winners bracket in the College World Series.
