Notre Dame baseball claims 4-2 victory over Perryville

Thursday, April 11, 2002

Scott Wittenborn belted a two-run home run to help Notre Dame to a 4-2 home victory over Perryville in baseball action Wednesday.

Wittenborn provided the game's first runs when he blasted a two-out pitch from Mark Scholl in the second inning after Kyle Diveley had walked.

Perryville scored twice in the fifth to tie the game, but lost the go-ahead run at the plate on a controversial call when the umpire ruled the Pirate baserunner did not slide on the play.

Notre Dame then went ahead with two runs in the sixth to make a winner out of reliever Jeff Brosey.
