CBD Visit: DeFilippis Provides Irish Walk-Off Winner in First At Bat

Notre Dame celebrates while Oklahoma walks off the field.

LOS ANGELES — No. 22 Notre Dame rallied for the tying run in the ninth inning and the game-winning run in the 11th inning to defeat No. 17 Oklahoma in walk-off fashion Sunday afternoon in the Dodgertown Classic at Jackie Robinson Stadium.

The Fighting Irish (10-3) fell behind 4-2 after Garrettt Carey hit a two-run homer in the sixth inning, but as they did all day, the Irish fought back. Eric Jagielo responded to Carey’s blast with his own two-run no-doubter to even the score.

Oklahoma (12-4) got on top once again after Hector Lorenzana hit a sacrifice fly in the eighth inning, but reliever junior college transfer Billy Waltrip couldn’t nail down his first career save in the final frame. He allowed a pinch hit double, couldn’t catch a popped up bunt with a diving attempt and then walked a batter to load the bases with no outs for Notre Dame’s 3-4-5 hitters.

Waltrip got Jagielo to pop out, but Trey Mancini hit a sacrifice fly to tie the game and send it to extra innings after Waltrip got a groundout to end the inning. Continue reading

Oklahoma-Notre Dame - 16

CBD Photo Gallery: #22 Notre Dame With Walk-Off Win Over #17 Oklahoma

Lane Richards is out at the plate.LOS ANGELES — On the first pitch he’s seen this season, Notre Dame sophomore Kevin DeFilippis one-hopped the left field wall for an 11th inning, 6-5 walk-off victory against No. 17 Oklahoma in the Dodgertown Classic Sunday afternoon at Jackie Robinson Stadium.

Ryan Bull led off the inning with a walk, advanced to third on a passed ball and a deep fly ball before scoring on DeFilippis’ game-winning hit. No. 22 Notre Dame tied the game in the ninth inning before taking the win in extra innings as Oklahoma’s pitching couldn’t hold an early 4-2 lead.

To lead off the ninth, pinch hitter Phil Mosey hit the painted foul line in left field for a leadoff double. After Billy Waltrip couldn’t make a diving catch on a popped up bunt, he walked the bases loaded for the heart of the Fighting Irish lineup. He was able to get stud slugger Eric Jagielo to pop out, but Trey Mancini hit a sacrifice fly to tie the game.

Hector Lorenzana had put the Sooners ahead 5-4 in the eighth inning with a sacrifice fly after Kolbey Carpenter executed a perfect hit and run to put runners on the corners.

Garrett Carey had a two-run homer that put Oklahoma ahead in the fifth inning, but Jagielo tied it up in the bottom half of the inning with his own two-run blast.

CBD Visit: Pepperdine Offense Struggles Against Seton Hall

Josh Provost gets the win..MALIBU, Calif. — Josh Provost struck out seven in 6 1/3 innings to lead Seton Hall to a 3-1 win Saturday afternoon at Pepperdine’s Eddy D. Field Stadium.

With their small ball approach, the Pirates scratched across three runs and that was more than enough. The Pepperdine lineup, missing starters Nate Johnson, Sam Meyer and Hutton Moyer and still without the services of Aaron Brown (though he is supposed to return to the mound on Sunday), struggled to score runs.

Pepperdine starter Corey Miller was not his sharpest, but he kept the Waves in the game, allowing only two runs in six innings. But for the second consecutive game, Seton Hall’s pitching shut the Waves down. Provost picked up his first win of the season while Brian Gilbert collected his first save. Gilbert pitched the final two frames without giving up a hit.

CBD Photo Gallery: Seton Hall Takes Series at Pepperdine

Austin Davidson chases a baserunner.MALIBU, Calif. — For the second day in a row, Seton Hall’s starting pitching shut down Pepperdine. The Pirates claimed their second win of the season behind 6 1/3 strong innings from Josh Provost Saturday afternoon at Eddy D. Field Stadium.

Provost allowed only four hits through six innings and left with a 2-0 lead after Bryan Langlois singled in the seventh inning on Prevost’s 86th pitch. Langlois advanced to third on a groundout and a wild pitch. Ranny Lowe got the Waves on the board with a dribbler down the line for an infield single.

However, Pepperdine stranded a runner in scoring position in each of the final two frames as Brian Gilbert locked down the save for the Pirates.

Seton Hall took the early lead in the second inning. A wild pitch brought home a run after a pair of singles put runners on the corners. The Pirates added a second run off Waves starter Corey Miller in the sixth inning when Zack Weigel hit a sac fly with the bases loaded.

Miller was able to get out of the jam thanks to a nice running catch in centerfield by Lowe, but Scott Kalamar made the Waves pay for an error in the seventh inning. After Alex Falconi reached on a throwing error, Kalamar doubled just inside first base to give the Pirates an extra insurance run that coach Rob Sheppard said was crucial.
