BOCA RATON, Fla. -- On the opening day of the 2014 season, the University of Notre Dame baseball team split a Saturday doubleheader at No. 24 Florida Atlantic, putting together a complete performance in game one to win, 9-2, before the wheels fell off in a 16-6 loss in the night cap.
Game one brought the excitement of a new season as the Irish played well in all facets of the game against the reigning NCAA Regional qualifiers and ace pitcher Austin Gomber. Notre Dame put up nine runs on 13 hits as five players tallied multi-hit games. Juniors Robert Youngdahl and Ryan Bull each cracked homers, while senior co-captain Forrest Johnson turned in the first three-hit game of his career.
"I felt very comfortable at the plate today," said the Hudson, Ohio native. "I saw the ball well and I was able to get into some fastball counts where I could really get my pitch."
