The University of South Florida baseball team will shoot for the first 4-0 Big East Conference start in program history on Friday night when the Bulls (18-8) host the Notre Dame Fighting Irish (15-8). First pitch is 7 p.m.

USF will start left-hander Andrew Barbosa (3-2), who struck out 13 batters in six innings of work last week against Georgetown, the first game of a weekend sweep vs. the Hoyas.

Pitching remains USF’s strength. The Bulls lead the Big East in team ERA (3.04). Before the season began, Bulls coach Lelo Prado said he expected a team that’s strong in pitching and defense.

USF has won four straight games, including Wednesday night’s 6-5 walk-off victory against Florida A&M, and eight of its last 10.
