The Miami Hurricanes secured a key victory on Thursday night, defeating Notre Dame 6-4 to begin the final weekend of the regular season. The victory eliminated Notre Dame from contention to win the ACC regular season title. Additionally, it meant Miami kept pace with Virginia Tech in the conference championship race after the Hokies defeated Duke 15-11 earlier on Thursday. Miami needs to match the amount of victories Virginia Tech has this weekend to finish first in the conference.
Thursday’s game was set to be one of the best pitching matchups in the entire country in the final week of the season.
