Softball Cards take two on Day 2 of Islander -- SUNDAY CARDINAL COUPLE



15 RUNS IN TWO GAMES IN UOFL SWEEP

HAWKEYES GROUNDED BY HENSLEY



Louisville softball put together 15 runs and 21 hits Saturday in Corpus Christi to win both their games in the Islander Invitational downing Iowa 7-2 and Texas A&M Corpus Christi 8-1. 

Megan Hensley, the fireball freshman from Ashland, KY entered the circle for the rematch against the Hawkeyes and allowed just five hits in seven innings while gathering three strikeout to go 2-0 on the season. 

Louisville wasted no time jumping on the Hawkeyes...scoring three runs in the first inning on an RBI single by Maryssa Becker and a based loaded, two-RBI single from Owensboro, KY freshman Lillie Goetz.

Hensley struggled a bit in the bottom of the first, loading the bags on two infield singles and a couple of wild pitches...but got out of the jam...allowing just one Hawkeye run. 

The Cards would push the advantage to 4-1 in the second when Jordan McNary slapped for an infield single and reached home on Becker's second RBI of the day. 

The Cards loaded the bases in the fifth and made it 5-2 when Goetz was walked and collected her third RBI...scoring Hensley. Louisville added two insurance runs in the sixth...thanks to three singles and Becker's third RBI for the game.

CORPUS CHRISTI CLUBBED BY CARDS


Becker went to the mound in the second game and recorded her first win of the season...going the distance and allowed just five hits while striking out five. 

UofL went to the offense early again...Nicole Pufahl's two out, two RBI single in the first gave the Cards all the runs they would need to go to 3-1 on the season.

There were still plenty of fireworks to come, though. The Cards made it 4-0 in the fourth...Sidney Melton's single driving in two runs. 

Pufahl sent her second home run of the season over the left field fence with two on in the fifth for a 7-0 Cardinal advantage and Goetz's RBI single in the seventh completed the Cards 8-1 triumph.

Batters up! IF Sandy Pearsall was disappointed with Louisville's offensive prowess Friday, she had plenty to cheer about Saturday. Eight Cards had hits in the win over Iowa and seven improved their batting averages by reaching base against TAMCC. 

Hello, slugger! Our esteemed colleague here at Cardinal Couple Jeff "Worldwide" McAdams has been singing the praises of Pufahl's power the last two seasons. He looks like a genius today...the Moorpark, CA red-shirt sophomore had two home runs on the season so far and neither of them were in question when they left the bat. Rip 'em up, Red! 


The Cards finish their stay in Corpus Christi with an early game this morning against Sam Houston State....who they handled easily on Friday with a 7-0 shutout. 

Funny , I never knew Sam Houston was a state...
