Louisville Owns Notre Dame in Sports that Involve Bats and Gloves

The Louisville baseball team capped a three-game sweep of Notre Dame with a 7-3 win on Sunday, adding additional fuel to the already raging debate over whether it is more admirable to have the most storied college football program in history or to dominate baseball and softball for one weekend in mid-May.

In the fifth inning, Logan Johnson smacked his 24th double of the season, which tied the single season record set in 1988 by Doug Lorenz. Johnson was then doubled in by Daniel Burton, who would later score on a Jorge Castillo ground out to make the score 6-1.

Derrick Alfonso then doubled with one away in the sixth and scored on an RBI single by Boomer Whiting to make the score 7-1.

Cardinal starter Colby Wark (3-3) gave up a run on four hits and five walks in 5.1 innings, striking out five to earn the win. Senior Skylar Meade worked 2.2 hitless innings out of the bullpen, allowing an unearned run on a walk.

Gavin Logsdon worked the ninth, allowing a run on two hits and a pair of walks.

Louisville will finish its regular season next weekend with a three-game set at Cincinnati. The Cards currently sit at third place in the Big East standings, but trail leaders St. John's and Rutgers by a single game.
