April 20


By Andy Barch


BASEBALL

 

MASTERING MALONE:  Notre Dame went 3-2 in five games last week, with the Falcons taking three out of four in a key American Mideast Conference home-and-home series with Malone.  In winning the series against the Pioneers, NDC ran its AMC mark to 13-7; that record has the Falcons in second place heading into this week.  … Right fielder Pat Ross (Gahanna, Ohio) batted .471/.545/.706 (batting/on-base/slugging) in Notre Dame’s five games last week.  The speedy freshman scored six runs, stole two bases and hit his third home run of the season, a key grand slam in game two against Malone.

 

UNBALANCED SCHEDULE:  Heading into this week, NDC is two games behind Shawnee State (10-0) in the circuit standings.  The Bears, however, have 14 AMC games remaining, while the Falcons (26-14, 13-7 AMC) just have four more conference games on tap  -- those games will be played in a four-game series at SSU on May 1-2.  Third-place Malone is 10-6 in the conference after dropping three of four to the Falcons. … The Falcons best AMC finish in program history is sixth place (2008). … In their 20 AMC games to date, the Falcons and their league foes have had remarkably similar numbers.  NDC has been outscored in those 20 games, 133-131, but the Falcons are 4-0 in AMC games decided by one run. … Pat Ross is batting .455/.519/.621 in league games.
