The Louisville baseball team tasted defeat for the first time in 15 games Wednesday night, suffering a 4-3 loss to former assistant Chris Lemonis and Indiana.

The Hoosiers did all their damage in the home half of the second inning, pushing across four runs on a pair of hits and a costly Cardinal error. Louisville rallied to push a run across in the third inning and two more in the fifth, but could never get the bats going enough to even the score. Both teams finished the game with just five hits.

The loss for U of L was the team’s first since a series-opening loss to Duke on April 21. The defeat also prevented the Cardinals from setting a new program record for victories in a single season. They’ll have three more opportunities to get that done this weekend in the regular season finale series against Florida State at Jim Patterson Stadium.

Game one between the Seminoles and Cardinals will be Thursday at 6 p.m.
