Notre Dame’s run at the College World Series ended with a 5-1 loss to Texas A&M on Tuesday at Charles Schwab Field in Omaha, Nebraska.
Notre Dame (41-17) didn’t have an answer for Nathan Dettmer, who pitched three-hit ball over seven shutout innings for the Aggies, the No. 5 national seed. Texas A&M will play Oklahoma in the Bracket 1 final. The Aggies will need to beat the Sooners on Wednesday and Thursday to reach the CWS finals this weekend.
Texas A&M scored three runs in the third on two walks, a balk, two singles, and a throwing error.
The Irish didn’t get their first hit until David LaManna singled with one out in the fourth inning.
Trevor Werner hit a lead-off home run in the fifth off Jack Findlay, and Dylan Rock had an RBI single to extend Texas A&M’s lead to 5-0.
Brooks Coetzee hit a solo homer off Brad Rudis in the eighth for the Irish’s lone run.
Notre Dame ended its season with their most wins since 2006 and first College World Series appearance since 2002. The Irish made the Super Regional round in consecutive seasons for the first time in program history, and upset No. 1 overall seed Tennessee to make it to Omaha this year. Notre Dame went 1-2 in Omaha, with a 7-3 win against No. 9 Texas and a 6-2 loss to Oklahoma before falling to Texas A&M.
