The Louisville baseball team will be looking to tie the second-longest winning streak in program history tonight when they take on Ohio State in Columbus, and they'll have the chance to accomplish that feat on national television.
First pitch between the Cardinals and Buckeyes is scheduled for 6:30 p.m., and the game will be televised by the Big Ten Network.
U of L is riding a 12-game winning streak heading into the final week of the regular season. A victory tonight will match the 13-game streak achieved by the 2010 Cardinals. The longest streak in the history of the program is 20, set back in the 1950s.
Sitting at 42-10 and with a top 15 national ranking, Dan McDonnell's team is eyeing a number of goals as it prepares for June and postseason baseball. The Cards trail first-place Pittsburgh by a single game in the Big East standings, and host the Panthers for a three-game set this weekend. A sweep would give U of L an outright regular season conference title. With a strong finish to the season, Louisville also would put itself in prime position to host an NCAA Tournament regional for the first time since 2010.
