The Cardinals, who totaled 15 hits and plated at least one run in all but fifth inning, had seven players enjoy multi-hit days. Senior center fielder Logan Johnson, who is one of seven players in the Big East Conference that were selected to the preseason Brooks Wallace National Player of the Year watch list, led Louisville with two home runs, driving in five.
12 runs on Tuesday
Six Cardinal pitchers combined for a five hitter, recording 10 strikeouts and walking just three in the win. Sophomore Andrew Salgueiro, who struck out three during his two innings of work, earned his first win of the young season.
The win evens U of L's season record at 2-2. The Cardinals will head to Florida this weekend for a three game set at Stetson (6-2), which has claimed a pair of early wins over previously-ranked LSU and previously undefeated South Florida. U of L will return to Jim Patterson Stadium on Wednesday, February 28 to face in-state foe Morehead State. Admission is free.
