NOTRE DAME, Ind. - The University of Notre Dame softball team used its offense early and often to power the way to a crucial 11-4 midweek victory on Tuesday over Ball State on a sunny afternoon at Melissa Cook Stadium.
The No. 23/25 Irish (21-7) finished one hit from tying a season-high with 18 hits on Tuesday, as well as one run shy of equaling a season-best in the win against the Cardinals. The 18 Notre Dame hits also set a new team record at Melissa Cook Stadium, surpassing the 16 base knocks the Irish recorded on April 9, 2009 against Valparaiso.
Notre Dame pushed its current win streak against Ball State to eight straight games dating back to the 1994 season, improving the Irish to 9-4 head-to-head all-time against the Cardinals.
