Today at approx. 4pm on ESPNU, the baseball Cards will take the field against either Kansas or Uk. The Cards defeated Kansas 6-3 in the regional game yesterday and by doing so earn a berth to the finals. Kentucky however has had the Cards number this season winning 8-3 in Lexington and beating the Cards at home 4-2. I believe Kansas will get it going late and win. The Cards will not be facing either teams ace as they were both used yesterday. If the winner of KU/uk defeats the Cards tonight, there will be a final game tomorrow night at 7 at Jim Patterson Stadium. Tickets are cheap so go fill up this magnificent ballpark.
For the Cards to defeat Kansas tonight they will need to execute on defense better. The Cards seemed to struggle yesterday a little with errors, mistakes which loaded the bases at least three times for Kansas yesterday. Even though most think we would have won by more if Kidston was taken out, he improved to 8-0 with the win and showed great resolve despite his mistakes. No offense to the Kansas team, I have friends who follow them for media purposes, but if they were a decent hitting team we would have lost yesterday. For the Cards to beat uk tonight they will have to rely on keeping the ball in the park. Whereas UL is a great small-ball team, uk is a great long-ball team. The Cards gave up 0 HR’s yesterday so that will be key to repeat again tonight. Win or lose the Cards should be ok as Funkhouser would take the mound tomorrow night if the cards are beaten. The Cards will host Super Regional action if they win this regional. Stay tuned to CSZ for times and dates as they become available.

The University of Louisville Women’s Golf team have captured the Cardinal Cup this year. Nine of the ten players on the team finished in the top 20 of the tournament and 4 finished in the top 10 and the top 2 finishers in the tournament. Sophomore Laura Restrepo shot a final round 75 to win the tournament by one. The team was so in sync that Louisville’s B team finished third. The Cards have won both tournaments they have played in this year with Laura Restrepo winning both individually. Great job ladies!
