The 8th ranked Louisville Cardinals played EKU in their home opener for the 2019 season. The temperature was in the low 30’s but it felt much colder. Despite the weather, the Cards managed to defeat the Colonels, 5-1. Starter, Luke Smith, pitched 6 innings in his first start in a Cardinal uniform, giving up 1 unearned run on 2 hits. He struck out 6 and gave up 2 walks. Smith is a junior who played 2 seasons at Parkland College before transferring to Louisville. Here are a few pics from that victory.
