Notre Dame baseball: Hearne, Irish shine
Notre Dame pitcher Michael Hearne had about 20 minutes to prepare for a start against Northeastern Friday night after regular starter Sean Fitzgerald was scratched with a sore forearm. Not flustered, the sophomore went about his usual business by going 8ð innings to lead the Irish to an 8-4 victory.
