The U of L baseball team will live to fight another day after knocking off seventh-seeded Cincinnati 5-3 in a Big East Tournament elimination game Thursday morning.
Third baseman Cade Stallings was the offensive star, hitting a solo home run to open the scoring and finishing the day 2-for-3 with three runs scored. Adam Engel, Ryan Wright, Zack Wasserman, and Drew Haynes each added an RBI.
Justin Amlung worked 6 1/3 innings to pick up his 10th win of the season, while closer Tony Zych successfully closed the door on an opponent for the 13th time.
The Cards will be in another do-or-die situation tomorrow afternoon at 3 p.m. when they face the loser of today's game between No. 2 St. John's and No. 3 Pittsburgh. The Panthers bested Louisville 7-2 yesterday.
