The #2 Louisville Baseball team took a trip to Virginia for their second conference road series. The #16 Cavaliers gave the Cards a fight, but Louisville came out on top in the series 2-1.
Game One: Louisville 5, Virginia 2 Colby Fitch hit a pair of home runs and Brendan McKay hit a home run in the win. Fitch is the first Cardinal to record multiple home runs in a game since Danny Rosenbaum in 2016. McKay pitched six innings on the mound. Adam Wolf came in after to get the win. Lincoln Henzman closed out the game to earn the save for a game that didn't end until after midnight due to the weather.
Game Two: Virginia 11, Louisville 2 The Cavaliers were hot. Nine of their runs were scored in the fifth inning or later, including a grand slam to break a 2-2 tie. U of L had as many strikeouts (six) as they did hits on the day. A trio of fielding errors did not help the cause either. Kade McClure only pitched 4.1 innings, but it was enough to take the loss.
Game Three: Louisville 4, Virginia 3 The rubber match was the closest game of the series, but went in the way of the boys in red. Devin Hairston's solo home run in the eighth inning gave the Cards the lead and they were able to hold on for the win. Louisville took advantage of the three Virginia errors in the win. Henzman came in for his seventh save on the year.
Louisville's record sits at 24-3 and 10-2 in the ACC. They're tied with Clemson for first in the conference.
The Cards return home to host Kentucky on Tuesday night at Jim Patterson Stadium.
