The Louisville baseball team beat Boston College on Saturday to go 18-0, setting a school record for most wins to start a season.

It was a record-breaking Saturday for the University of Louisville baseball team.

Freshman Devin Mann drove in two runs, junior Kade McClure pitched eight solid innings and Lincoln Henzman picked up the save as the Cardinals beat Boston College 6-4 at Jim Patterson Stadium.

The victory sends the No. 1 Cardinals to an 18-0 start, which breaks the school-record for most wins to begin a season. U of L was 17-0 during the entire 1957 season.

U of L has now won 30 straight regular-season home series.

McClure (3-0) pitched eight innings and allowed just four hits and one run. He left the game with a 6-1 lead and struck out nine.

Riley Thompson allowed two hits and walked one, allowing three runs to begin the ninth inning. Adam Wolf came in and got the first out and then Henzman picked up his fourth save with the final two outs.

Mann was 2-for-4 with two RBIs on a two-out single in the third inning.

Drew Ellis had two hits, while Ellis, Colin Lyman and Logan Taylor each drove in a run. Josh Stowers scored two runs for the Cardinals.

U of L will close out the series tomorrow at 1 p.m. against Boston College.
