Softball Cards down #15 Texas 3-1
Kristen Wadwell pitched the Cards to a 3-1 win over Texas in the final day of Louisville's west coast swing. Wadwell allowed only three hits in the complete game.
Louisville ended the final game in the Judy Garman classic by defeating the Longhorns behind the pitching mound wizardry of Wadwell and some timely hitting by the rest of the team. The Cards took an early lead in the first inning when Vanessa James doubled and scored when Chelsea Bemis's grounder was mishandled.
They would make the go ahead run in the second from a double by Alicia Wolny that scored James who had reached on a single.
Texas plated a run in the bottom of the third but would score no more against the Cards. Louisville tacked on an additional score in the 6th when a Wolny single drove in Chelsea Jordan.
Louisville went 4-1 during the 4 day stay in California, beating Purdue, Cal State-Northridge, Cal State-Fullerton and Texas and losing to New Mexico 6-5 in 8 innings.
The Cards (19-10) play next on Wednesday with a trip to Bloomington to face the IU Hoosiers.
