Josh Stowers blasted a pair of home runs, including a game-winning three-run shot in the 8th inning, to lift Louisville to a 10-7 win over Notre Dame Sunday afternoon at Jim Patterson Stadium. The six RBI on the day were a career high for Stowers, who is playing the best baseball of his career at the perfect time.
Stowers has reached base safely in 39 straight games and has hit safely in his last nine. Over Louisville’s last 28 games, Stowers is hitting .417 with five home runs, 31 RBI and 20 stolen bases.
U of L’s weekend sweep of the Irish puts the Cards’ final ACC record at 18-12, good enough to earn them the No. 5 seed at next week’s conference tournament. Sunday’s win also guaranteed Dan McDonnell of yet another 40-win season.
