Via a 8-7 win over Xavier Sunday night, the Louisville baseball is headed to its fifth consecutive super regional, the longest such streak in the country.

The Cardinals took the lead away from the Musketeers on three separate occasions, including for good in the 7th inning on a Logan Taylor RBI. Josh Stowers, the MVP of the regional, knocked in four runs, including a three-run home run to kick off the U of L scoring.

Now Louisville turns its attention to the super regionals, where it will face either Kentucky or NC State. Two more victories will send the Cardinals to the College World Series for the fourth time since 2007.

Regardless of who the opponent is, this week’s games will be played at Jim Patterson Stadium, with the first taking place on either Friday, June 9 or Saturday, June 10. Tickets are already available for purchase here.

Patterson is going to be a madhouse either way this weekend, but if the opponent does wind up being Kentucky, it’s going to be a postseason event unlike any other the venue has seen.
