CHESTNUT HILL -- True freshman quarterback Chase Rettig made his debut on Saturday night, only to have it cut short near the end of the first half with an ankle injury. Prior to the injury, the Eagles had shown signs of life but an early Notre Dame lead and a dismal second half led to a 31-13 defeat at the hands of the Fighting Irish.
The Eagles looked stunned out of the gate after the Fighting Irish, led by quarterback Dayne Crist, jumped to a 21-0 lead in the first quarter. Notre Dame returned the kickoff to midfield on the opening kickoff and four plays later Crist ran the ball for a 7-yard touchdown. The Eagles were unable to respond in their first three drives after Rettig was unable to complete a pass on his first four attempts. Notre Dame proceeded to score on two of their next three possessions to bring the score to 21-0 with just over two minutes left in the first quarter.

Brett Gardner scored the winning run from second in the top of the 10th when Bill Hall overran Derek Jeter's infield single at second base as the Yankees prevailed, 6-5, in 10 innings at Fenway Park in the first game of a day-night doubleheader. Robinson Cano homered and doubled twice, driving in two, and Curtis Granderson tripled in a run and scored twice as the Yankees built a 5-3 lead only to see the Red Sox tie it with single runs in the seventh and eighth.
After being honored in a pregame ceremony at third base, Mike Lowell received a standing ovation after being lifted for pinch-runner Lars Anderson in the fifth inning. Lowell doubled home two runs off Andy Pettitte in the first inning, staking the Red Sox to a 2-0 lead. Lowell finished 2-for-2 with a walk and a run scored.
