24 hours before the Louisville baseball team begins their NCAA Tournament run, a few players have earned accolades as 2018 All-Americans.
Pitcher Adam Wolf was named as a third-team All-American by Baseball America, while first baseman Logan Wyatt also earned a third-team All-American spot with Collegiate Baseball Newspaper.
Wolf finished the 2018 regular season with a 7-2 record, posting 105 strikeouts and a 2.26 ERA. Wyatt was among the team’s best hitters and a certain candidate for breakout player on U of L’s 2018 team, averaging .336 at the plate with 59 RBIs and walks each, as well as a team-high 22 doubles.
Press release from the University of Louisville athletic department:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – University of Louisville sophomore first baseman Logan Wyatt was named Monday as the Atlantic Coast Conference Baseball Co-Player of the Week.
The conference honor is the first for Wyatt, who shared this week’s recognition with Clemson’s Seth Beer. Miami’s Evan McKendry was selected as Pitcher of the Week.
Wyatt was 7-for-12 at the plate with a home run, three doubles, one triple and eight RBIs as the Cardinals went 3-1 last week with a series win over No. 13 North Carolina. Wyatt added seven walks and scored five runs while registering a 1.250 slugging percentage and .737 on-base percentage in the four games. After opening the week with four hits and five RBIs in a win over Morehead State, the Louisville native was 2-for-3 with a pivotal three-run double and scored the game-winning run in the 5-4 series-opening victory against the Tar Heels. Overall, Wyatt has a .309 batting average, seven doubles and 15 RBIs in 15 games this season for the Cardinals (14-1, 2-1 ACC).
Up next, No. 4 Louisville concludes its 14-game homestand at Jim Patterson Stadium with a two-game midweek series against No. 5 Texas Tech. The Cardinals and Red Raiders are set for Tuesday at 3 p.m., ET and Wednesday at noon.
