Louisville reacts following loss to Fullerton

The Cardinals fell 3-2 in 10 innings to Cal State Fullerton in the first game of the Louisville Super Regional. Here's the video from Louisville's postgame press conference.

The No.3 national seed University of Louisville baseball team lost for the first during the 2015 NCAA postseason on Saturday afternoon, falling 3-2 to 13th-ranked Cal State Fullerton.

The host Cardinals (46-17) out-hit the Titans (38-22) 12-10, but left 11 runners stranded in 10 innings of play.

Freshman Brendan McKay, who was named Louisville Slugger Freshman of the Year earlier in the week, and senior outfielder Mike White both connected for solo home runs to account for the Cardinals scoring.

The loss snapped an 11-game postseason winning streak at Jim Patterson Stadium.
