SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - There are just three days away from Notre Dame baseball’s first super regional appearance since 2002, when Notre Dame squares up with Mississippi State

Irish manager Link Jarrett has a bunch of fresh arms ready to go in Starkville.

During the three-game sweep of the South Bend Regional this past weekend, Jarrett used only three relief pitchers, who combined pitched a total of three innings.

Jarrett has relied heavily on the bullpen this season. While his relief pitchers did not see much game action this weekend, Jarrett says it should not impact how they pitch in the super regional.

“Really, at this point, I am not even sure that seeing the hitters is a huge thing,” Jarrett said. “It probably helps some of these guys that have been up and down in the bullpen. You get banged up throughout the long year like this.”

Notre Dame will have a fully rested bullpen for the best of three-game Super Regional against Mississippi State.

The first game of the series is on Saturday at 2 PM on ESPN.
