Notre Dame improved to 25-21 (9-18 ACC) after another series victory over an ACC opponent. David Glancy had himself a weekend, exploding offensively and defensively. Glancy batted .583 on the weekend with seven hits, three doubles, a home run with five RBI, including making two incredible outs in the outfield on Sunday. Glancy was not the only player with multi-hit performances, as the Irish had 5 other players this weekend to accomplish the feat.


On Friday, the Irish offense gave the defense little to no help. The Notre Dame bullpen had held Pitt scoreless the final 5 innings, while Notre Dame's only run came in the 8th when it was too late, as they would drop game one by a score of 3-1. Notre Dame was great in the field, however, as they took sole possession of first place in the ACC for double plays, and had a stellar defensive performance by earning a 1.000 fielding percentage on Friday.





Saturday was a completely different story, as the offense was firing on all cylinders. Glancy was on fire going 4-6 with a home run and three doubles, along with four runs and five RBI. Glancy became the first Notre Dame player to hit three doubles in a single game since Robert Youngdahl on March 14, 2015 at Clemson. Just one player across all of Division I baseball this season has had more doubles in a single game this season. Estevan Moreno and Nick DeMarco also hit some home runs Saturday, making it just the second home run of DeMarco’s career. Notre Dame now has hit 78 home runs this season alone, just one shy of the program-record (79) set back in 2022. Notre Dame's offensive explosion led them to a decisive 15-8 win.


The series-deciding game on Sunday produced more offensive fireworks for the Irish. David Glancy, Estevan Moreno and Connor Hincks all posted multi hit games. Moreno had two doubles and brought in two RBI. The bullpen became a key contributor as well - SP Rory Fox went five innings with three strikeouts to earn the win. The bullpen would take over after Nate Hardman would pitch the ninth inning to close the game for the Irish, dealing two strikeouts and earning his fifth save of the season. Notre Dame would go on to win 8-6 securing their ninth win in ACC play as they stay hot both in and out of conference.


Notre Dame heads into its final week of the season at home with a weekend series vs. Toledo (23-25), Friday, May 10th - Sunday, May 12th. All games will be broadcasted on the ACC Network. Notre Dame will then travel on the road again to Butler (17-30) for a single game on Tuesday, May 14th, before closing out the season vs their last ACC regular season series of the season, at Louisville (29-18, 13-11 ACC) beginning on Thursday, May 16th - Saturday, May 18th.
