Cards Fall To Hoosiers, Focus On AAC Championship

USA TODAY Sports

The Louisville baseball team squandered a key opportunity to make their case for NCAA Tournament regional host, dropping a 7-2 showdown with No. 8 Indiana at Jim Patterson Stadium on Tuesday.

After U of L cut Indiana's lead to 3-2 in the 8th inning, the Hoosiers busted things wide open with four runs in the 9th, an inning highlighted by a three-run home run off the bat of Kyle Schwarber. The loss was the second lopsided defeat Louisville has suffered at the hands of IU this season, and marked the sixth time the Hoosiers have defeated the Cards in the past two years.

There's zero time for the Cards to sulk, however, as they are three wins away from clinching at least a share of the AAC's regular season conference championship.

Louisville enters this weekend's three-game set with Cincinnati deadlocked atop the league standings with Central Florida. The Golden Knights are headed to Storrs this weekend to play three games against UConn.
