(KNOXVILLE, TN) - The Notre Dame baseball team put on a furious rally in the late innings to knock off No. 1 Tennessee, 7-3, and advance to the College World Series for the third time in program history. The Irish hit back-to-back home runs in the seventh inning to take their first lead of the game and never looked back. Trailing 3-1 heading into the seventh, David LaManna tied the game with a two-run home run to the opposite field and leveled the game at 3-3. The very next batter, the Irish took the lead as Jack Brannigan launched a solo blast over the wall in right center. Tennessee ends the season at 57-9. Notre Dame improves to 40-15 and will face the winner Greenville Super Regional in their first game in Omaha.
