Louisville baseball caps sweep of Clemson with walk-off win

The Louisville baseball team finished off a three-game sweep of No. 18 Clemson with a Corey Ray walk-off double Sunday afternoon at Jim Patterson Stadium.

With Colin Lyman at second base and two outs in the inning, Ray belted a 2-1 pitch from lefty Pat Krall into the alley in left center where it bounced once before clearing the top of the wall and landing outside the field of play. The game-winning hit for Ray, who was 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in the game, clinched the second walk-off win of the season for the Cardinals (29-7, 13-5 ACC), who completed a weekend sweep of the Tigers (24-12, 8-10 ACC) while also moving into first place in the ACC Atlantic Division.

The Cards return to action Tuesday night at 6 when they host arch-rival Kentucky in the Battle of the Bluegrass. U of L has defeated UK four straight times, including a 9-6 win in Lexington last week. Tickets for Tuesday night's game are available here.
