CLARKSBURG, W.Va. – The luck of the Irish came through at Frank Loria Memorial Field on Monday night as the Notre Dame baseball team claimed a sectional title over Tygarts Valley, 7-6 walk- off style.
The Bulldogs had the early advantage. Tygarts Valley led 6-2 in the sixth inning.
But they didn’t put the game away there. Notre Dame put up a run in the bottom of the inning as Isaac Wolfe raced home on a wild pitch.
Then Preaton Heslep drilled in two runs off of a single to tie the game up 6-6 at the end of regulation.
In the bottom of the tenth inning, Tyler Marra ripped off a shot to left center that brought home Dominick Bombardiere to win the game 7-6.
Bombardiere earned the win, striking out seven batters and only allowing one run in 7.2 innings pitched.
