The Louisville softball team exacted some revenge for a 4-0 loss to Kentucky earlier in the season by pounding the Wildcats 8-0 in Lexington Tuesday night.
The third-ranked Louisville baseball team began a week that includes five non-conference games by notching a 6-2 road victory over former league rival Cincinnati last night. The Cards are back in action tonight at Jim Patterson Stadium for a 6 p.m. game against Western Kentucky on Cancer Awareness Night.

A statistical look at what to expect in season two from a Bobby Petrino-coached team.
Louisville is officially in the final five for five-star quarterback Jawon Pass.
Louisville signee Ryan McMahon was named first team All-State in Florida's class 3-A.
Top U of L target Maverick Rowan met with Wisconsin and Bo Ryan today.
Jamon Brown had an official pre-draft visit with the Detriot Lions on Wednesday.
The Louisville baseball team remains at the top of this set of ACC power rankings.
The forgotten aspect in the flood of transfers these days in college basketball is how many of these kids are "forced out" by head coaches at their current programs. The Salt Lake Tribune details two such defections from this year's BYU team.
The Minneapolis Tribune plays "truth or hype" with DeVante Parker.
There's only three wide receivers I think that have the capability of becoming a No. 1 receiver - Cooper, West Virginia's Kevin White and Oklahoma's Dorial Green-Beckham. Cooper is the best receiver in this draft by far. White and Green-Beckham have the potential to become No. 1 receivers, but it will take time for both to develop.
I have Parker as my fourth best receiver in this draft, behind Cooper, White and Arizona State's Jaelen Strong, who will also be a solid No. 2 receiver in the NFL. While I like Parker, I gave Strong the slight edge because of his hands, toughness and physicality. He's raw but had two good seasons at Arizona State with a terrible quarterback. Strong, like Parker, will need to work on his route running.
Parker is without question worthy of a first round pick. He's a top 20 talent in this class that should get picked in the middle of the first round and will have a long career. I'm just not buying that he's a No. 1 receiver in the NFL, and I don't think the Vikings should take a receiver in the first round unless Cooper magically falls at No. 11.
Verdict: He'll be the truth as a No. 2 receiver. Will Parker develop into a No. 1 receiver? Don't believe the hype.
When your local team of note is home to Teddy Bridgewater, you should know better than this.
To no one's surprise, five-star point guard Derryck Thornton is reclassifying to 2015 and will run the show for Duke next season. Louisville had also been a finalist for Thornton.
Bobby Petrino is on the "opposes" side of the ongoing satellite camp debate.
Though they both deny interest, Kevin Ollie and Billy Donovan seem to be the top two candidates for the Oklahoma City job.
And finally, congrats to Cardinal freshman pitcher/first baseman Brendan McKay for being named to the watch list for the 2015 John Olerud Two-Way Player of the Year Award.
