Rachel Nasland (5-1) picked up the win for the Irish, allowing one run in three innings of relief with five strikeouts. Sophomore pitcher Aimee Chapdelaine (Pembroke Pines, Fla.) threw a complete game in the loss.

In the first game, Notre Dame's Laura Winter (17-4) threw a perfect game with nine strikeouts, as the Irish defeated the Cavaliers, 8-0, in five innings.

The Irish scored five in the first, including a three-run home run by Winter. Cassidy Whidden added a two-run home run for Notre Dame in the fifth.
