I know what you are thinking. Jeremy, we don’t want to read your recap of all sports at Louisville. We only care about the top ones. I had someone tell me that last week. For every sour patch kid there are a 100 people who support all sports at Louisville. I do this for you guys. I do it for CardNation. So for those of you who don’t feel like going to each team page and finding out the results, I bring you the weekend update. (Not like the SNL version)
#2 @UofLBaseball team suffered its first series loss on the road in more than a year falling 4-2 at No. 21 Ole Miss in Sunday afternoon’s decisive third game at Swayze Field.
Having won seven straight true road series entering the weekend, the Cardinals (5-2) dropped two of the three to the Rebels (6-1) ending a streak dating back to April 17-18, 2014 when they lost two of three at UCF.
