Louisville Splits Kentucky Series with 8-2 Win

Danny Oriente and Jake Snider delivered multi-hit games with two RBIs each, including Snider’s two-run homer in the sixth inning, to give Louisville (25-11) an 8-2 win over Kentucky (25-12), splitting their rivalry series at 1-1. The win extended Louisville’s winning streak to five games, and is the Cardinals’ ninth in their last 11 against their in-state rival.

Kentucky jumped ahead early with a solo home run in the third inning from Trey Dawson. Despite the Wildcats getting an early lead, the Cardinals rebounded with plenty of offense this time around. A pair of RBI singles from Danny Oriente and Josh Stowers in the fourth inning gave Louisville the lead, one they would never relinquish.
The Cardinals added four runs in the fifth inning and two more in the sixth, punctuated with Jake Snider’s two-run homer in the latter inning. In the fifth though, Louisville scored a run on a bases-loaded walk, then an RBI fielder’s choice by Stowers that allowed Snider to reach home safely. Devin Mann stole home while Josh Stowers was jammed between the bases, resulting in Stowers reaching second. Oriente followed it up with an RBI double that would bring Stowers home.
Kentucky scored a run in the eighth inning on an RBI groundout from Luke Becker. Gavin Sullivan would later close the inning, and Sam Bordner retired the side in the ninth to seal the win for Louisville.

We are not used to being on the bubble. this feeling sucks. I know though if we had taken care of business then we aren’t worried about that right now. It also was much easier to figure out B.Q. (Before Quadrant) but in the end all we really want is to be selected tomorrow for the tournament. I have spent all morning talking to my expert bracketologist Mr. S and we have come up with who CardNation needs root for to help improve our resume. You won’t like them all.

Louisville Basketball PostGame Pressers: St Francis

Here are the highlights, presser & interviews from after last nights 84-72 victory over St Francis University.

 

Before what looked to be a sprained ankle, Ray Spalding was on a mission! 19 points, 13 boards and 5 blocks! Who knows what would have happened if he would have played the entire game. Anas added 12 points and 9 rebounds. The Cards had 6 players in total in double figure scoring (Spalding 19, Adel 13, Anas, 12, Q 11,VJ 10, Nwora 10) but it had a different feel to this game even though Louisville led wire-to-wire. It was stretched out all the way to a 22 point lead with 12:38 left in the game but SFU came back and made it a game all the way to the end. Here is what Coach Padgett and the players had to say:
