It wasn’t perfect, but it was close. The Irish of Sacred Heart defeated Cathedral Prep in a playoff qualifier on Wednesday, 5-0. Senior PJ Connaire, fully rebounded from mid-season arm trouble, was masterful, allowing only three base runners (one hit and two walks), while striking out seven in a complete-game shutout. Connaire did not allow a single Cathedral runner to reach second base, at one point setting down 12 Cathedral batters in a row.
