CMU baseball went down to South Bend, Indiana on Wednesday to take on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

Both offenses were shut down by the pitching performances, leading to a final score of 2-0. 

With the Chippewas win, their overall record improved to 14-27. The win also snaps the Irish’s five-game winning streak

The game was a pitching war as both teams combined for four total hits on the day, and seven of the nine innings went scoreless.

The Chippewas scored the only two runs of the day in the fourth and sixth innings, both off of a walk and a fielders choice.

Central Michigan’s magnificent seven pitchers combined to hold the Irish to one hit all day.

The Chippewas come home to take on the Northern Illinois Huskies in a Mid-American Conference weekend series. The first game of the series starts Friday at 3 p.m.
