NOTRE DAME, Ind. – The University of Notre Dame softball team countered an early 3-0 deficit after the first inning with 10 unanswered runs, and ultimately scored 11 of the game's final 12 tallies on its way to an 11-4 non-conference win over Michigan State on Wednesday night at Melissa Cook Stadium.
The No. 23/25 Irish (22-7) won their fourth consecutive game, and improved to 3-0 at Melissa Cook Stadium this season. Notre Dame is now 8-1 all-time against Michigan State.
“It’s no fun to get down early, and it’s tough, not an easy thing,” Notre Dame head coach Deanna Gumpf said. “I’m really proud of the way we came back and started hitting the ball well in the second inning. I knew once we scored in the second inning we would be fine because we started having good at-bats, and I liked our level of play. We had a lot of energy and stayed there, and I thought that was how we were able to keep going.”
