The Louisville baseball team continued to roll Thursday night, taking game one of a three-game set with visiting Miami by a final of 7-5. The Cards have now won seven straight.
The U of L offense produced yet another double-digit hit effort, pounding Miami pitching for 11 of them. This proved to be especially important on a night where national midseason Pitcher of the Year Reid Detmers wasn’t at his absolute sharpest. The Cardinal ace was still effective, surrendering three runs on five hits while striking out seven over 5 and 2/3 innings.
Each of the first four batters in the Cardinal lineup produced two hits. Leading the way was All-American candidate Logan Wyatt, who finished 2-for-4 with four runs driven in, two on a blast over the center field wall in the third inning.
The win lifts the seventh-ranked Cards to 30-8 overall and 14-5 in the ACC, the best record in the conference.
Due to weather, first pitch for game two between Louisville and Miami has been moved to 4 p.m. on Friday.
