Hello Brooklyn

basketballlogo1

It has been forever since I last posted to this site. Work has kept me pretty busy, and there was a computer change, and more work, and …no one cares.  Anyway, this will be a short and sweet post just to get the juices flowing again as time begins to slow back down.

This is by no means an ACC Tournament preview.  There are still games to be played and seeding to be established.  It is simply a cautionary tale. A small piece of my opinion. A quick check in on what to look forward to and how to manage expectations.

Louisville Baseball Jumps To 6th In Latest Polls

img_5238

In the latest round of NCAA Baseball polls, the Louisville Cardinals have jumped up to as high as the 6th ranked team in the country, trailing only Florida State in 5 out of 6 polls, and North Carolina in 1 poll as the best team in the ACC. NINE ranked teams from the ACC!

Final Pitch: Louisville Sweeps Omaha and EKU Easily

20170225_141351

Following a successful three-game stretch in Florida, the Cardinals returned home to start their 2017 home slate, beginning their eight game home stretch at Jim Patterson Stadium.

Louisville Destroys EKU 19-3

The week began with thunderous authority, as U of L downed Eastern Kentucky 19-3 in its home opener. The day was led by All-American candidates Devin Hairston (4-4, three RBI) and Brendan McKay (2-4, four RBI, HR).

Jake Snider also had a noteworthy play in the fifth. The freshman singled up to center field, but an error by the center fielder resulted in Snider making it back to home for an unearned score. Had the error not occurred, it would have been Louisville’s first inside-the-park home run in 12 years.

After McKay opened with a grand-slam in the first inning, EKU rallied to cut the deficit to 4-3 with an RBI single from Jacob Abbott in the second, and then two more runs in the third with an RBI bunt and a wild pitch. Louisville then went on a 15-0 run from the fifth to the eighth inning, led by a two-run home run from Drew Ellis. Logan Taylor had another stellar night, batting 3-of-4 with two RBI.

Bryan Hoeing earned his first career start for Louisville, striking out seven but allowing three earned runs on four hits. Rabon Martin would earn the win with three no-hit shutout innings and striking out three.
