Syracuse’s game against Notre Dame on Sunday was canceled due to inclement weather. The final game of the series was originally scheduled to start at noon.
The Orange lost the first two games of the series, and a loss on Sunday would have been their third three-game sweep of the season. More than half of Syracuse’s home games have been canceled or postponed so far this season.
On Friday afternoon, the Orange and Fighting Irish were tied at two heading into the fifth, but Notre Dame split in the final innings to win 5-2. Then, after a long rainy delay on Saturday, the Fighting Irish’s mercy dominated Syracuse in five sets to win 9-0. Kaia Oliver allowed eight runs in the first two innings to put the game out of reach.
The Orange sit 11th out of 13 Atlantic Coast Conference teams after the weekend, with Pittsburgh and Boston College ranked below them. The Oranges are two games behind 10th-place North Carolina.
Syracuse will play the last series of its homestand when it hosts Canisius in a double-header on Wednesday, with games at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.
