Louisville baseball sweeps Boston College

The University of Louisville baseball team moved into first place in the ACC Coastal Division - a tie with Florida State - after sweeping Boston College this weekend. The Cardinals took out Boston College 5-2 on Sunday to complete the three-game sweep.

Sophomore Josh Rogers pitched six strong innings and the offense pounded out 12 hits as the University of Louisville baseball team pulled off a sweep of Boston College with a 5-2 win on Sunday before 1,905 fans at Jim Patterson Stadium.

The Cardinals (14-6, 5-1) are now tied with Florida State with the best ACC record in the league and at the top of the Coastal Division standings.

"It's a good start, this was a good weekend," U of L coach Dan McDonnell said. "We had good starts and we played clean baseball."

Rogers (2-1) picked up the win and had his third straight strong outing, going 6.1 innings and allowing seven hits and two runs. Rogers had one stretch where he retired 11 straight batters and 16 of 17.

Leadoff hitter Sutton Whiting has reached base in 19 of 20 games and went 3-for-4 with an RBI, while left fielder Mike White was 2-for-3 with two runs and an RBI. Zach Lucas also had two hits, while Danny Rosenbaum and Devin Hairston each had RBIs.

Louisville will host Purdue on Tuesday at noon and then hits the road next weekend for a three-game series against Notre Dame.
