The Yellow Jackets have hit a mini-skid of sorts in Indiana, dropping the first two games of a three-game series to Notre Dame.
After also losing Friday by the same score, the Yellow Jackets again couldn’t get over the hump against the Fighting Irish on Saturday afternoon.
The Irish got all they would need to win in the bottom of the second inning, getting four runs on two hits off starter Jay Shadday. The freshman from Rome, Georgia went six innings, giving up four runs on six hits. Shadday struck out three and walked five batters.
Tech scored a run apiece in the fourth, the eighth and the ninth innings, but fell short in the end, even with a pair of errors from Notre Dame.

Junior right hander Jared Datoc pitched three scoreless innings of relief for the Yellow Jackets, giving up only one hit, giving up no walks, and getting a pair of strikeouts. The Tech offense couldn’t take full advantage of the shutout performance, however.
The Jackets and Irish will square off for game three in the series on Sunday afternoon at 12 p.m.
