It was Notre Dame vs Bethel Saturday in San Diego as the Cubs took on the Padres.
Irish alum Jeff Samardzija threw eight innings of two run baseball to get the win over Bethel alum and Argos High School graduate Eric Stultz.
The game was scoreless until the 5th when Darwin Barney hit a solo home run. Barney's double in the 7th to put Chicago up 2-1 chased Stultz out of the game. Stultz gave up three runs in 6 1/3 innings, striking out four. He's now 8-11 on the season.
Samardzija improves to 8-11 on the year, giving up two runs while striking out seven in eight innings of work.
