The Louisville baseball team capped off a perfect 5-0 week with an 8-5 win over Pittsburgh Sunday afternoon.
The Cards swept the series with the Panthers by winning three games by a combined score of 20-13. The sweep guaranteed that U of L (37-15, 15-12) will at the very least finish with a record of .500 in the ACC.
Josh Stowers was the star if stars for the Cards on Sunday. The All-American candidate matched a career-high with four hits, going 4-for-5 with a home run, a double, three stolen bases and a career-best four runs scored.
“This was a great week for a team as we continue to execute in all phases and create momentum in this final stretch of the regular season,” Dan McDonnell said after the game. “The offense provided a big lift for our team and our starting pitching continues to give us a chance each time we take the field.”
In its five wins last week, Louisville had a team batting average of .368 and scored a whopping 52 runs.
Now the team turns its attention to the final week of the regular season. The Cards will host Indiana Tuesday night at 6 before hosting a three-game series with Notre Dame that will begin Thursday night.
