Louisville Baseball Tops Cincy, Clinches Share Of AAC Title

USA TODAY Sports

For the the third straight season and the fifth time in six years, the Louisville baseball team has won its regular season conference championship.

The Cards clinched at least a share of the AAC title Thursday night with a 5-1 victory over Cincinnati, a win which moved them 1.5 games ahead of second place Central Florida. U of L can clinch an outright title with a win over the Bearcats on Friday or Saturday.

Louisville ace Kyle Funkhouser surrendered his first run in 29 innings, but still managed to pick up the victory by scattering just four hits over six innings. The win moved Funkhouser, who struck out seven UC hitters, to 11-2 on the season.

On the offensive side of things, Zach Lucas drove in a pair of runs for the Cards, while Alex Chittenden continued his torrid May by going 2-for-3 and scoring a pair of runs.

The championship marks the 13th AAC title for U of L teams during the 2013-14 season. The Cards and Bearcats will be back at it Friday night at 6 inside Jim Patterson Stadium. Admission is free.
