WHAT TO WATCH
– It’s Notre Dame versus Michigan. What more can be said?
–Freshman Jack Findlay will get his first start since Game 2 of the Florida State series. Findlay went 1.2 innings as he struggled to find the strike zone. He ended up allowing two hits, one run, one walk and one strikeout on 34 pitches.
Findlay rebounded last week against Butler as he went 3.0 innings with two walks and three strikeouts on 44 pitches.
– What will Link Jarrett do with the DH spot on Tuesday? Nick Jaire and Jack Zyska have started in the past series, but Jarrett started DM Jefferson on Sunday. Michigan will throw a southpaw, so Jefferson is likely out as Jaire is a switch hitter and Zyska is a right-hander.
– The Wolverines are coming off a weekend sweep for Cal State Fullerton (10-20). Michigan has a win over No. 9 Louisville this year.
