WHAT TO WATCH

– Notre Dame was sloppy Thursday afternoon and lost 15-5 in the series opener.

– Irish pitchers struggled to throw strikes in Game 1 as they walked seven and had three wild pitches while striking out just six.

– Duke receiver Andrew Yu went 4 for 5 with 2 RBIs and Alex Mooney was 3 for 4 with 3 RBIs and two doubles and two walks. Not bad for true freshmen.

– The good news for Notre Dame is that ace John Michael Bertrand will take the mound on Friday as the Irish look to even the series. Bertrand comes in today leading the ACC in ERA (1.53), so there’s a good chance Duke won’t have 16 hits on Friday.
