Louisville exploded for six runs in the seventh inning and added another three in the eighth to top arch-rival Kentucky 11-2 last night at Cliff Hagan Stadium in Lexington. The margin of victory was the largest for the Cards over the Cats since a 15-4 win in 1992.
Chris Dominguez again led the way for U of L at the plate, going 2-for-4 with three RBI and drilling his team-best 13th home run of the season. Drew Haynes, Andrew Clark, Phil Wunderlich and John Dao each added two hits.
Louisville, which currently sits at 12-6 and tied for second in the Big East, opens a three-game set at Villanova Friday afternoon at 3:45.
Additional congrats to the Louisville softball team which also defeated Kentucky on Tuesday, topping the Cats 2-0 at Ulmer Stadium.
