Cardinal Nine rolled in Super Regional opener

Cal-Stat Fullerton hurler Daniel Renken surrendered just three hits, but he could have allowed far more and still com away victorious as the second-seeded Titans pounded Cardinal pitching for 12 runs en route to a 12-0 victory in game one for the Super Regional.

Renken, who had never thrown a complete game shutout before Friday night, struck out ten Louisville batters and threw just 98 total pitches.

Now facing elimination, Dan McDonnell will send ace lefty Justin Marks (11-2) to the bump to face Zoe Ramirez (8-1) today at 5 p.m. (ESPN).

Maybe we'll shelve the open thread this time.
