Pack9 gets shut out on the road in South Bend by 25th ranked ND Friday evening, drops game one of the weekend series by a final of 2-0.
Ryne Willard led the way with a 3-for-4 performance. Logan Ratledge submitted the other multi-hit effort for the Pack (20-15, 8-10 ACC), his 19th of the season, going 2-for-3 with a walk. Preston Palmeiro and Bubby Riley supplied one single each. Notre Dame (25-11, 10-9) mustered just three hits, but collected six walks to escape with the win.
Game Two tomorrow at 2pm.
Game Three Sunday at 1pm, ESPN3.04/18/2015 at 8:41 AM #85256BJD95Keymaster
I see how this crap goes now. I shall pay attention to Game 3 of each series and ignore the rest.04/18/2015 at 10:57 AM #85257
^ LOL, a trend we need to break.04/18/2015 at 11:41 AM #85258

Big win for the ladies.

BOTH games allegedly streaming FOC at WatchND.tv.04/18/2015 at 3:37 PM #85260BJD95Keymaster
I might have to allegedly stream the back end of that, then. Cards’ Carlos Martinez start is taking streaming priority over the Pack’s cursed Game 2 right now.04/18/2015 at 3:56 PM #85261
First game of the day is indeed streaming…we’ll see about the nightcap.
Scoreless pitcher’s duel in the 7th, but Pack with runners on the corners with 2 away.
Check that…2RBI double for ph Deatherage…Pack leads 2-0.04/18/2015 at 4:51 PM #85263
Wheels fall off for Pack pitching in the home half of the 9th. ND knots it at 2…extra frames required.04/18/2015 at 5:51 PM #85266
And another extra inning game for the Wolfpack. This one now going to the 14th at 2-2.04/18/2015 at 5:56 PM #85267
Is it me, or does ND’s announcer sound like Bob Uecker?04/18/2015 at 6:01 PM #85268
1st and 2nd w no one out for the ‘Pack in the top of the 14th… With Avent continually being a little whiney biotch. I think that’s about his 4th warning. And really, no valid reason for him to be arguing.. STFU Avent.04/18/2015 at 6:04 PM #85269
Wild pitch puts Wolfack at 2nd and 3rd w/ no one out. And Avent does NOT come out of the dugout to complain about something.04/18/2015 at 6:05 PM #85270
K followed by an intentional walk. Bases loaded, 1 out.04/18/2015 at 6:07 PM #85271
Foose, I agree that he tends to argue at the wrong times, but that first pitch ‘strike’ was terrible. Outside and low and it was easily both from my perspective. Knizner with the sac fly, Pack up 3-2. 2 out.04/18/2015 at 6:14 PM #85272
Sack fly, followed by 2 consecutive walks, and a pop up.
Wolfpack 4-2 going to bottom up 14th.04/18/2015 at 6:15 PM #85273
Top of the 14th ends but not until the Pack adds another on a 4-pitch walk with the bases loaded. Pack leads 4-2 heading to close it out.04/18/2015 at 6:22 PM #85274
Wolfpack wins 4-204/18/2015 at 6:22 PM #85275
Bubba Riley makes a nice catch and a barrel roll for the first out, and O’Donnell strikes out the last hitter to seal the win! I’ll be up for Game #3 in just 45 minutes.04/18/2015 at 6:42 PM #85276
Figures. After we couldn’t push Rat in from 3rd with no outs in the 12th I got fed up and went outside to play w/ my niece. Glad to come back in to unexpected good news.
Now, make it two bartender.04/18/2015 at 6:48 PM #85277Pack78Participant
The Irish brew got us thru-go Pack!04/18/2015 at 7:17 PM #85281
Wolfpack up 2-0 after top of 1st.04/18/2015 at 7:53 PM #85283
Williamson lost control in the 2nd. A walk, a 2-run homer, 2 more walks, 2-run single, another walk. Wolzack in.04/18/2015 at 7:58 PM #85284
Not sure what’s worse…that last half inning or the fact that my niece is now in dress up mode.
And apparently I’m the dressee.04/18/2015 at 8:52 PM #85287TheCOWDOGModerator
Crickets from here.
Can’t defend them all and ride one…year after year.
Most unseemly.04/18/2015 at 9:19 PM #85289
Honestly, I’ve had very little gripe with skip this year. He still goes off half-cocked now and again, sometimes at odd moments, but I’ve decided to look at it as endearing, lol. Mostly he’s done OK b/w the lines.
Softball dropped both ends of their doubleheader with the lady heels today.
