Watch: Notre Dame goes back-to-back to take lead over Tennessee

·1 min read

The Irish were looking like their season was coming to an end in Knoxville, Tennessee. With Volunteer freshman pitcher Chase Burns controlling the game, it didn’t seem like a 3-1 deficit entering the top of the seventh inning was something the Irish could comeback from.

Well, as this Irish team has shown all season, they just don’t give up. With Carter Putz starting off the rally, doubling to deep left-center with one out. Cather David LaManna then came up with two outs and Putz still on second and sent a line-drive down the right field line. The ball had just enough carry to go over the wall, tying the game at 3.

With the Irish right back in the game with one swing, it was Jack Brannigan next up. Behind the count at 1-2, Brannigan launched a shot to left-center, clearing the wall by plenty to give Notre Dame their first lead of the game, 4-3.

Now, just nine outs away from heading to Omaha. The Irish look to finish off the number one seed in the NCAA Tournament, Tennessee.
