2017 ACC Tournament Game 11

Louisville Cardinals vs. Florida State Seminoles (NCAA)

Louisville Slugger Field-Louisville, KY:  I didn’t like this game.  Not at all.  In some way of dark magic, Florida State’s season came alive the weekend before when they rode into town and spanked the Cardinals two games in a row on their home field.  One would think that this game would be different, that Louisville would be pumped up and out for revenge.  Unfortunately for the packed house clothed in red and white here in the stands at Slugger field, the opposite happened.  The Cards seemed to play some uninspired baseball, en route to eliminating themselves from the tournament.

From here forward, I’ve decided not to mention any Seminole player by named during the re-caps.  Sorry, it’s nothing personal.  Well, yeah, actually I guess it is…  Kade McClure was on the mound for the Cards, and he gave up two runs in the first inning.  He only lasted 3.24 innings, giving up four runs on six hits.  Adam Wolf and Lincoln Henzman each gave up a run, also.   The Cards had little offense, but Brendan McKay did go 2/4 with a home run.  FINAL: Cardinals 2, Seminoles 6.

One Year Down

Louisville Cardinals vs. Northern Kentucky Norse (NCAA)

Louisville Slugger Field-Louisville, KY:  The 26th marked our one year anniversary of living down here in Kentucky, so we decided to celebrate with a baseball game featuring two Kentucky teams.  The Cards were hosting the Northern Kentucky Norse at Louisville Slugger Field (where the Bats play) for a special game.  This was our first chance to check out NKU, also.  I was fortunate enough to get these tickets for free, after buying tickets for the ACC Baseball championship here next month.  Free tickets are the best kind, and Trevor and I had great seats to watch a great game.The Norse actually came out swinging, and took a 4-0 lead!  NKU opened the scoring in the first inning on a solo homer run by T.J. Alas.  In the second, Chad Roberts scored on a passed ball to put the Norse up 2-0.  The Norse poured it on in the third, but Roberts hitting an RBI doubled, and then scoring himself on an RBI single by Mike Moffatt.  Louisville’s starting pitcher Bryan Hoeing didn’t last past the second inning, but his offense came around to bail him out.  Adam Wolf picked up the win for the Cards, throwing 2.1 scoring innings while striking out three.  Relief pitcher Sam Bordner also pitched two scoreless innings, while Lincoln Henzman earned the save by pitching a perfect ninth.

Offensively, Louisville was lead by Drew Ellis and Zeke Pinkham.  Ellis started the comeback with a solo home run of his own in the fourth inning. He then followed that up with a two-run moon shot in the fifth to put the Cards up 5-4.  Both players were 2-4 on the day with three RBI, with Pinkham getting his first career home run.  Charlie Jerger ended up taking the loss for Northern Kentucky.  It was a funny game with some controversial calls, with both head coaches making appearances out on the field.  Norse head coach Todd Asalon was even ejected with the classic chest bump and dirt kicking.  Final: Cardinals 6, Norse 4.

A fun game for Trevor and I.  Some of the photos don’t show it, but there was a decent crowd and they were entertaining and good natured themselves.  We actually don’t have any ballgames planned out between now and the end of May, but that doesn’t mean we won’t find one to take in.  Most likely it will be the Cards or Bats, but the Brian playing on the weekends sometimes it’s hard to find one that fits our schedule.

Cardinals set school record

Louisville Cardinals vs. Boston College Eagles (NCAA/ACC)

Jim Patterson Stadium-Louisville, KY:  We were finally able to make it to another Louisville game, and what a historic game it was!  Brian was nice enough to let me watch some of the game from the stands, before heading to the outfield so he could play on the park.  I can’t complain too much, though as the best food is grilled in the outfield bleachers.  The #1 ranked cards were riding a 17 game winning streak after beating Boston College in the first game of the series 6-0 Friday night.  On Saturday, Louisville would put up another six, but the Eagles didn’t go away as quietly.

On the mound, Kade McClure pitched well with nine strikeouts and only giving up one earned run.  Louisville native Riley Thompson came in for relief, and got rocked a bit, giving up 3 earned runs and making things interesting the later innings.  Adam Wolf and Lincoln Henzman would shut things down for the Cards, though.  McClure still picked up the win, also.

Offensively, the Cardinals were lead by second baseman Devin Mann, who went 2-4 with 2 RBI’s.  Also contributing was Drew Ellis, 2-5 with one RBI, and Logan Taylor 1-2 with one RBI.  Their 18th win in a row is a new school record for wins in a row to start the season.  Final:  Cardinals 6, Eagles 4.

This was a fun game to be at, and the weather wasn’t all that bad, either. Louisville would also earn a 5-3 on Sunday, getting the sweep and extending the winning streak to 19 games.  The Cardinals will be hitting the road for the next couple of weekends, but we’ll be back here the first week in April.
