NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Behind seven shutout innings from junior righty Pat Connaughton and some timely hitting from the Irish bats, the University of Notre Dame baseball team continued its winning ways Thursday night at Frank Eck Stadium with a 3-0 victory over Atlantic Coast Conference foe Pittsburgh.
Connaughton (3-5), who pitched his sixth-consecutive game where he went at least 6.2 innings, turned in another dandy Thursday night as he gave up only four hits in shutting out the Panther bats for seven frames. He also struck out four and walked four in 116 pitches.
"This was a game where I was able to throw my off speed for some strikes and I think that's a big thing for me moving forward," said Connaughton.
