Cards rained out Friday, double-header scheduled for today

Game two of the 10th-ranked Louisville baseball team's weekend series at Notre Dame scheduled for Friday night has been postponed due to rain. The Cardinals and Fighting Irish will now conclude their series with a doubleheader on Saturday at noon ET at Frank Eck Stadium. Game one of the doubleheader will be scheduled for seven innings, while the second game is set for nine innings. Connecticut beat Seton Hall 11-5 yesterday, so in order for U of L to win the Big East's regular season title they're going to have to sweep the Irish today and hope the Pirates can salvage one of three in Storrs.

[Baseball] Scouting Report: Louisville & CS Fullerton

Very detailed scouting report by Aaron Fitt. On CS Fullerton: "You've got to punish their pitching. For me, the way you beat them is you've got to pound their pitching and get into their bullpen." On Louisville: "They're not going to be more talented than Fullerton, but they're going to play very hard. ...You look at them, you don't say, 'That's an Omaha team,' but when they're confident like they are now, I could see them pulling off an upset."

Chris Dominguez repeats as Big East Player of the Year

From the Big East: Louisville third baseman Chris Dominguez became just the second player in BIG EAST history to repeat as BIG EAST Player of the Year as he took home the conference’s top individual honor Monday in advance of the 2009 BIG EAST Baseball Championship at Bright House Field. Louisville pitcher Justin Marks was chosen as BIG EAST Pitcher of the Year, while Connecticut outfielder George Springer was tabbed as the BIG EAST Rookie of the Year. USF head coach Lelo Prado was named the BIG EAST Coach of the Year. Dominguez is the first player to win the BIG EAST Player of the Year honor in consecutive seasons since Notre Dame’s Steve Stanley won in 2001 and 2002. Dominguez shared the honor with Cincinnati’s Josh Harrison in 2008. Dominguez led Louisville to its best regular season in school history as the Cardinals went 40-14 and captured the BIG EAST regular-season title for the first time. He finished the regular season as Louisville’s leader in home runs (21), RBIs (75) and stolen bases (17). He led the BIG EAST in total bases (158) and was second in the conference in home runs, RBIs and slugging percentage (.721). He capped the regular season by hitting home runs in each game of the Cardinals’ doubleheader sweep of USF, which gave Louisville the outright regular-season championship. Marks becomes the second Louisville player to be named BIG EAST Pitcher of the Year in the last three seasons, joining 2007 winner Zack Pitts. Marks finished the regular season as the BIG EAST’s only nine-game winner, going 9-2 with a 3.47 earned-run average that ranks third in the conference. He struck out a BIG EAST-leading 106 batters and walked just 27 in 85.2 innings and went 7-1 in nine starts against BIG EAST competition.
