Cards Softball powers past Pitt 9-0 -- Pick 'em numbers --- MONDAY CARDINAL COUPLE

(Due to unforeseen formatting problems, today's article got partially deleted this morning. Thanks goodness there wasn't much to report)


Louisville Softball got a nice gift from the Easter bunny Sunday in the form of four home runs, in a 9-0 win over Pittsburgh on the Pitt campus. 

After Daisy Hess and "Pickle" Winkle reached via the base on balls route in the top of the fifth, Frizell decided she didn't like that look and cleared the bases with a booming moon shot over the center field fence that home run put the Cards up to stay. but Louisville wasn't done with the scoring yet in the inning. Miller followed with her home run to center and walks were issued to Ally Alexander and Gabby Holloway, That set the stage for Richardson to crush one to left that made it 7-0.

Louisville added their final two runs in the top of the seventh. After Alexander reached on a single, Richardson sent Mr. Spalding in search of prime right field property with her second home run and it was 9-0 UofL. 

So the Cards take the series, their first in the ACC this year. Zabala goes six innings to improve her record to 15-9, most wins in the league.  Holloway pitched the seventh. The Cards now head home and then to a Tuesday matchup at NKU  vs, NKU. 
A good Easter for Louisville and  an encouraging show of batting. 


With 1/2 of the final four decided (NCST and South Carolina on Sunday) , let's take a look at our pick 'em leaders. 

Atop the leaderboard are Blue Lou and Jason wth 51-7 records. They are two for two in final Four Picks so far and Blue Lou sees Iowa and UConn joining the gang in Cleveland...Jason has the same picks. Blue Lou has Iowa winning it all, Jason picks Southi Carolina. 

Close behind them are Katy and Thomas at 48-10. 

Monday night brings two more chances to reach The long awaited rematch between Iowa and LSU takes place and  U.S.C will test UConn for a spot, 


And, in exclusive news known just here...the NCAA has decided that they'll let Louisville WBB replay the MTSU game and see if they can do better.....APRIL FOOLS !!!!!!...



  1. Give who a chance to do better, the Cards or Middle?

  2. I didn't enter the contest (missed the notification of the 10:30 deadline) but feel that UConn will be cutting down the nets in Cleveland. Bueckers is playing at a Clark-like level and has a better supporting cast. Really looking forward to tonight's games. Should be two good ones.

  3. Have a safe trip back to Wenatchee, Van Lith...
