Tori Collins pitches 2nd no-hitter in a row Sunday


-Collins no-hits Longwood in 1-0 win.

-Lady Cards tidbits

Tori Collins wasn't satisfied with just one no-hitter this weekend...she turned around and tossed a second one Sunday against the Longwood Lancers. This one was a full seven-inning performance and Louisville (38-2, 9-2) swept the weekend non-conference series with a 1-0 win.

She is the first Louisville player to ever throw back-to-back no hitters. 

This one started out as a pitchers' duel and both Collins and Longwood pitcher Libby Morris had no-hit games working until the bottom of the fourth inning. After Jennifer Esteban drew a walk with one out, Kristin Austin got the first hit of the game, a single. Alicja Wolny reached on a base-on-balls to load the bags for Taner Fowler. She hit into a double play, though, that ended the inning and kept the game scoreless. 

The bottom of the fifth was when the Cards produced the only run they would need for the victory. Jordan Trimble opened the inning with a lead-off double and scored from third on freshman Whitney Arion's two-out single. 

Collins struck out six and allowed four walks over seven innings to go 17-1 on the season. Longwood's Morris allowed five hits in a tough loss over six innings. 

Louisville returns to play Wednesday when they face #16/18 South Florida in Ulmer Stadium. The double-header starts at 4 p.m. and will be televised on ESPNU. 'da Bulls' are 40-6 overall and a conference leading 13-1. Time to run with the Bulls...and head them right back to Louisville Inernational Airport with a 13-3 conference mark.

WE'RE not rumor starters here at CARDINAL COUPLE. In fact, we go by the "Sgt. Schultz - I know nothing" philosophy but we're getting reports that a certain 6'3" center from Sweden may have Louisville as one of her three favorites when she comes across the Atlantic to attend college and play ball this fall.

No official report from UofL on this. The Cards do have a scholarship available, though...we're pretty sure. 

If it has any credence to it, this gal's a force to be reckoned with.

More as we find it out. Thanks to CARDINAL COUPLE writer Jenny for the detective work!
