Kade McClure picks up his second win of the season as Louisville gets 13 hits and beats Pittsburgh 8-2 to go 14-0 on the season.

Adam Wolf pitched 2.1 innings and Shane Hummel came in for the final two outs. The Cardinals gave up two runs in the ninth to the Panthers (7-6) to win the series and go 2-0 in the ACC.

Devin Mann's single in the bottom of the first gave the Cardinals a 1-0 lead, while Logan Taylor's two-run double in the second made it 3-0. Devin Hairston added a two-run double in the third inning.

The Cardinals tacked on a run in the sixth and Colby Fitch hit a two-run home run in the eighth for the Cardinals.

Taylor, Fitch, Brendan McKay, Tyler Fitzgerald and Colin Lyman all had two hits for the Cardinals.

The final game of the series is slated for 1 p.m. on Sunday.
