- Dramatic wins keep coming; Irish riding 22-2 run since March 8
- Heilman earns third BIG EAST player-of-the-week award
The surging Notre Dame baseball team (26-8, 12-1 BIG EAST)-ranked No. 25 by Baseball America-resumes its quest for the BIG EAST regular-season title, with a three-game weekend series against Boston College (13-13, 3-7) … Rutgers (9-4) is in pursuit of the Irish while six other teams still have strong shots at advancing to the six-team BIG EAST Tournament: Pittsburgh (8-5), Seton Hall (7-5), Providence (7-6), Villanova (7-6), St. John’s (6-6) and West Virginia (5-10) … the Irish are playing 20 of 22 April games at home, plus next week’s neutral game vs. Michigan (in Grand Rapids) … Notre Dame has won five straight, 11 of its last 12 and 22 of the last 24 … the Irish are 109-20 at Eck Stadium in the five-year tenure of head coach Paul Mainieri … Notre Dame reached 20 wins in their 27th game, equaling the third-quickest Irish baseball team to 20 wins in the last 40 years (the ’89 and ’90 teams opened 20-6) … the record for quickest to 30 wins is shared by the ’90 and ’94 teams (30-9, with the ’98 team opening 30-10) … freshman 3B Andrew Bushey suffered a knee injury at West Virginia on March 20 but could return to action this week … Bushey’s replacement at the hot corner, junior Jeff Perconte, suffered a season-ending knee injury when he slid home with the tying run in the eighth inning of Notre Dame’s 6-3 win over Cleveland State on April 14 … Perconte had provided a huge boost to the Irish lineup as the No. 9 hitter, batting .323 overall with 19 RBI and two home runs (plus .400 batting with runners in scoring position) … junior SS Brant Ust is riding a 12-game hitting streak three shy of equaling his career-best, set in April of 1997).
WILD SEASON KEEPS ON ROLLING: Notre Dame’s amazing last-minute magic in 1999 has included: 12 comeback victories, six games when the Irish scored the winning run in the final inning and four other victories where the Irish game-winner was scored in the second-to-last inning the 26 Irish wins have included just two by more than four runs, with seven wins by one run, five by two runs, seven by three runs and five by four runs (the Irish average margin of victory is 3.0) … in the last 12 games alone, the Irish have posted six comeback wins (one in the last inning, another in the second-to-last inning)-plus three other victories where the winning run came in the final inning.
HEILMAN PITCHER-OF-THE-WEEK … AGAIN: Notre Dame sophomore RHP Aaron Heilman (Logansport, Ind.) earned his third BIG EAST Conference pitcher-of-the-week award, after posting wins over Detroit (6-4) and Pittsburgh (4-1) during the week of April 5-11 … his stats for the week included a 2.40 ERA in 15 innings, 17 strikeouts, 19 groundouts, seven hits, three walks and a .137 opponent batting average … in the midweek win over Detroit, Heilman logged eight innings while allowing four runs (three earned) on five hits and two walks (9 Ks, 10 groundouts) … he beat surging Pittsburgh with his fifth complete game of the season and seventh straight victory (25 batters faced, 81 pitches, 8 Ks, 9 GOs, 2 , 1 BB) … the one run allowed was set up when centerfielder Steve Stanley misjudged a fly ball that ended up being a triple … Notre Dame players have combined for six BIG EAST weekly awards, second only to Providence (7) … Heilman previously shared BIG EAST pitcher-of-the-week honors on March 15 while earning the award outright on March 22 … he is one of four BIG EAST players to earn multiple awards this season … other Notre Dame weekly award winners in ’99 include Stanley (rookie of the week, March 15), junior SS Brant Ust (player of the week, March 29) and junior 1B Jeff Felker (player of the week, April 5) … the Irish have produced at least one award winner during each of the past five weeks.

Brock, Jeff Wagner and Allen Greene) … Aaron Heilman struck out dangerous hitter Sean McGowan with the bases loaded to win the ’98 series opener … the 16-3 win by the Irish over BC in ’97 included a five-hit game by Randall Brooks (his second in 10 games) … the teams had not met for 67 years before Notre Dame joined the BIG EAST in ’95-’96 … Notre Dame won 9-0 at BC in 1908 en route to a 20-1 season … the Irish lost at BC 20 years later, 8-1 in 1928 … top Irish career hitters vs. BC include: Jeff Felker (.450, 9-for-20, 5 RBI), Wagner (.429, 12-for-28, 6 RBI, 2 HR), Porzel (.400, 4-for-10, RBI, HR) and Ust (.389, 7-for-18, 11 RBI, 3 HR) … Heilman saved both games of last year’s doubleheader, with three Ks. one walk and one hit allowed in 1.2 shutout innings … Chris McKeown, who won the second ’98 game in relief, is 2-0 in 9.2 career innings vs. BC, with two runs, 11 hits and one walk allowed, plus six Ks … Alex Shilliday also is 2-0 in two career starts vs. BC, with 14 Ks in 13.2 innings (7 R, 18 H, 5 BB) … Tim Kalita had no decision vs. BC in ’98, logging four innings while allowing two runs, two hits and five walks (with two Ks) … Scott Cavey has two career relief appearances vs. BC (3 IP, 3 R, 5 H, 3 Ks, 2 BB).
IRISH BASEBALL ON THE AIR … AND THE WEB: South Bend-based WHME radio (103.1) is scheduled to broadcast most of Notre Dame’s 55 regular-season games-including the upcoming series vs. Boston College-and any postseason action during the 1999 campaign … all games are available via the internet, with a link from the Notre Dame website (www.und.com) … WHME’s television division also may air several simulcasts during the 1999 season (schedule TBA) … WHME is scheduled to broadcast 20 of Notre Dame’s remaining 21 regular-season games, except for the April 30 game vs. Oakland.
AROUND THE HORN: The latest NCAA Division I rankings has Brant Ust checking in at 20th in the nation for HRs/gm at 0.42 (he now is at 0.41, with 14 HRs in 34 gms) … Jeff Wagner-who has just eight Ks in 53 ABs-did not meet the HR minimum coming into the week (eight HRs) but is now averaging 0.44 HRs/gm (7 HRs, 16 gms) … Boston College’s Sean McGowan (19 in 26, 0.73) entered the week second in the nation for HRs/gm (0.61), behind San Francisco’s Taggert Bozied (22 in 35, 0.65) … … junior RHP John Corbin has totaled six saves and a 5-1 record in his 14 appearances while ranking second on the team with a 3.51 ERA (plus 28 Ks in 25.2 innings) … sophomore RHP Aaron Heilman (67 Ks) and junior lefty Tim Kalita (60) are on pace to challenge the Irish single-season strikeout record of 108, set by Frank Carpin in 1958 … Heilman is allowing just .179 opponent batting, which would rank second-best by an Irish pitcher since 1991, behind David Sinnes’ impressive .163 opponent average in 1992 … Heilman’s last 10 outings include a 6-0 record, a 1.88 ERA (10 earned runs), one save and 51 strikeouts in 48 innings.
QUICK TEAM NOTES: A big key to the Irish success this season has been the clutch hitting with runners in scoring position (.320) … in addition to 12 come-from-behind victories and seven one-run wins, the Irish own six victories this season where the winning run was scored in the last inning and four in which the winning run came across in the second-to-last inning … in the last 12 games alone, the Irish have posted six comeback wins (one in the last inning, another in the second-to-last inning)-plus three other victories where the winning run came in the final inning … the April 2 doubleheader vs. UConn featured 49 combined hits (21 for extra bases), nine home runs (seven by the Irish), and 5:25 of game time (plus a 39-minute rain delay) … Notre’s Dame’s big seven-run fourth inning in the opener vs. UConn included consecutive home runs from Jeff Wagner, Jeff Felker and Matt Nussbaum, with Jeff Perconte leaving the yard two batters later … Notre Dame’s continues to lead the BIG EAST with a .962 overall season fielding pct. (equaling last season’s mark, which ranks third-best at Notre Dame since 1982), with unearned runs providing the margin of defeat in just one Irish loss … the Irish pitching staff is on pace to total 503 Ks over 60 games, which would best the team record of 456 set last season … the ’99 staff is averaging 8.91 Ks per nine innings, which would rank second in the Irish record book (behind the 1958 team’s 9.89) … the Irish pitchers also own a 2.57 K-to-walk ratio, ahead of the record of 2.40 set in 1963.
WAGNER RETURNS WITH A BANG: Senior DH and Irish career home run lead Jeff Wagner (48 HRs) missed all of March and the April 1 doubleheader vs. Providence due to a foot injury … Wagner returned from his five-week, 18-game hiatus in stunning fashion, smacking the first pitch he saw on April 2 vs. Connecticut over the fence in dead-center field … he then ignited the decisive seven-run fourth inning in that game, with a shot to left-center (sparking four Irish HRs in five at-bats) … Wagner added a third home run in the nightcap-a booming left-field shot that cleared the football practice-field fence across the street … he finished the day 4-for-5, with two walks … Wagner’s barrage vs. UConn moved him into second on the list for career HRs in BIG EAST regular-season games (now 23 in 65 games), three shy of the record held by former Seton Hall great Mo Vaughn (26 in 53, ’87-’89) … Wagner’s four RBI vs. the Huskies give him 76 in his BIG EAST regular-season career (now 78), pushing him into third in the BIG EAST record book, behind the record of 83 shared by former SHU catcher Alex Andreopoulos (83, ’92-’95) and Vaughn Wagner added his ninth career two-home-run game (and third of the season) in the 14-10 win over Bowling Green on April 7, helping rally the Irish from an early 9-1 deficit … Wagner has moved into fourth on the Irish career RBI list with 182, behind Eric Danapilis (221, 1990-93), Dan Peltier (202, 1987-89) and former teammate Mike Amrhein (202, 1994-97) … Wagner also is four runs shy of ranking 10th in Irish history (150) while his 225 career hits rank 10th all-time at Notre Dame, four behind Greg Layson (’94) … Wagner also ranks ninth at Notre Dame with 106 career walks while his 49 career doubles are fifth all-time (his .339 career batting avg. ranks 11th all-time at Notre Dame).

SHILLIDAY MOVING UP STRIKEOUT LIST: Notre Dame senior RHP Alex Shilliday owns 235 career strikeouts, ranking fifth on the Irish all-time list … Shilliday could make a run up the list, which includes a formidable group that played together for three seasons: David Sinnes (315, ’93), Tom Price (276, ’94), Chris Michalak (263, ’93) and Al Walania (236, ’93) … Shilliday also ranks eighth in Notre Dame history with 23 career victories.
BIG EAST BESTS: Notre Dame senior C Jeff Wagner and All-America junior SS Brant Ust rank among the top hitters in BIG EAST history … Ust’s career bating average in BIG EAST regular-season games (.429, 85-for-198) is on pace to challenge the existing record of .432, set by Seton Hall’s Marteese Robinson from ’85-’87 … Wagner ranks 13th on that list with a .398 avg. (92-for-231), including 23 HRs in the BIG EAST regular season-second all-time behind former Seton Hall great Mo Vaughn (26, ’87-’89) … Wagner also ranks third in BIG EAST history with 78 career RBI in conference games, five behind Vaughn (83) and former SHU catcher Alex Andreopoulos (83, 1992-95) … two former Irish players-2B/CF Randall Brooks (.418, ’96-’97) and IF J.J.
