Louisville baseball’s quest for the first national championship in program history will begin Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. ET against College World Series favorite Vanderbilt. ESPN will have the coverage.
This means game No. 2 for the Cardinals will be on Tuesday at either 2 p.m. (if they lose to Vandy) or 7 p.m. (if they beat Vandy).

I figured FSU would get the spotlight Saturday night time with Mike Martin being the dominant storyline, but I thought Cards-Commodores would be the night game on Sunday. We’ll be competing with the final round of the U.S. Open, but whatever.
Here’s to a great weekend and safe travels to those of you following the team West.
