Louisville leads the series 8-4. Carmyn Greenwood leads the team and the ACC and stands eighth in the nation with 59 hits. Taylor Roby has a team-high 12 home runs and 36 RBI standing tied for second in the ACC in home runs and fourth in RBI. She has also produced a team-best 10 multi-RBI games.
Roby (10-9) leads the team with a 2.54 ERA in 30 appearances and 129.1 innings of work. Its evident that this team is at its best when Roby starts in the circle for the Cards.
For the Eagles, junior catcher Gianna Boccagno has one of the strongest arms behind the plate in the country. The Florida native leads the ACC with 15 runners caught stealing in 2021. In all, opponents are just 22-of-37 in stolen base attempts against Boccagno this season. BC leads the ACC with 17 runners caught stealing.

Its Senior Weekend for the Eagles. Junior pitcher Susannah Anderson is among the ACC leaders in several categories this season. The ace of the BC pitching staff, Anderson is 7-15 with a 2.40 ERA in 25 appearances in 2021, good enough for 13th in the ACC.
