Softball Sweeps Double Header at Virginia Tech
In the first game, Louisville jumped out ahead to a 3-0 lead in the first inning before Virginia Tech had a big inning of their own in the second and took a 4-3 lead themselves. The game of big innings continued as the Cards put up a six spot in the fourth to regain the lead at 9-4. The Hokies never really threatened Louisville's lead for the rest of the game, scoring just two more runs over the next two innings while Louisville scored four more through the rest of the game. VT's last gasp came in the bottom of the seventh when two singles and a walk loaded the bases with one out. VT needed all three of those runs plus four more to extend the game, but back to back infield popups got Louisville out of the jam and gave them a game one win.
The second game was all Louisville as the Cards put up a three spot in the first inning, added runs in the third and sixth for good measure, and Maryssa Becker spun a 7 inning shutout. Becker allowed only 6 hits and 2 walks compared to 4 strikeouts. Both of those walks came in the first inning, and Virginia Tech had only one multi hit inning. It was a great game for the Cards who racked up ten hits of their own and played clean baseball with zero errors.
The weekend double header was supposed to be played today, but the forecast caused scheduling to shift. The Battle of the Birds will wrap up today at 10:30AM and the Cards will look for a big series sweep before hosting Western Kentucky for a midweek game on Wednesday.
Baseball Wins Game Two at Georgia Tech
Lacrosse Hits the Road
After a frustrating loss to North Carolina last week, the Lax Cards have had a week to lick their wounds before heading out to take on another top twenty team. Louisville takes on the 15th ranked Virginia Cavaliers in Charlottesville in their last road game of the regular season. The Cards haven't been able to beat Virginia yet in their history, trailing in the series 2-0, but came close last year. Louisville lost the last matchup in Louisville 10-9 and will hope to finish the job with a big late season victory. Louisville has one more game on Thunder against Syracuse before the ACC Championship gets underway in Richmond, Virginia. Today's game gets underway at 1PM and is not listed as being available on ACCNE. Follow along with the women's lacrosse twitter page for updates.
