Notre Dame baseball loses to Pittsburgh at ACC

After falling 9-5 to lowly Pittsburgh in Wednesday’s pool-play opener of the ACC Tournament, Notre Dame baseball coach Shawn Stiffler was asked if he viewed Friday night’s date with top-ranked Wake Forest as a must-win game for the unranked Irish.

“We’re going to treat it that way for sure,” Stiffler told reporters in Durham, N.C. “If we come 1-1 out of here, I think our ACC record proves we’re one of the better (teams).”

Following last year’s run to the College World Series, eighth-seeded Notre Dame (30-23 overall, 15-16 ACC) finds itself on the proverbial bubble ahead of the NCAA Tournament selection announcement on May 29.
