NOTRE DAME, Ind. - The theme of the season for the University of Notre Dame softball team has been offense, and Saturday's Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) doubleheader was no different. The Irish scored a total of 25 runs on 28 hits in two games against the Eagles, earning a 12-4 win in six innings and a 13-8 triumph in the nightcap on a sunny day at Melissa Cook Stadium.

No. 22 Notre Dame (36-10, 15-5 ACC) pushed its current winning streak to six straight games, and the Irish have added victories in 11 of the last 13 games. Notre Dame also secured the second seed in the ACC Championship, which will be held May 8-10 at the Maryland Softball Stadium in College Park, Md.

"I am super happy with the way the offense played," Notre Dame head coach Deanna Gumpf said. "They made one bad inning for us seem not so bad."
