Louisville scores in the bottom of the 9th and then in the 10th to beat in-state rival Kentucky 2-1.

Louisville baseball's bats were quiet, very quiet, for almost all of tonight's game against in-state rival Kentucky. But, they came alive just enough and at just the right time to edge out a 2-1 win over Kentucky in 10 innings before a regular season record crowd of 5,056 fans at Jim Patterson Stadium.

With the win, No. 3 Louisville improved to 35-10 on the season.

Through eight innings of play, Louisville managed just one hit, a Corey Ray double that didn't amount to much of a threat after that. But in the bottom of the 9th, trailing 1-0, Louisville Nick Solak singled to right field, driving in Logan Taylor from third to tie the game and force extra innings. In the bottom of the 10th, Blake Tiberi singled to centerfield, scoring Mike White from second base to give Louisville a 2-1 win.

The Cards have now won eight of their last 9 games. They'll meet up with Kentucky again in Lexington on May 6th.
