Yeah, one of those. A muggy day all around Saturday at Jim Patterson Stadium. Dan McDonnell reclaims the ball from pitcher Jeff Thompson in the top of the fifth after giving up a base on balls and a three-run fourth inning. Louisville loses 6-2, falling behind first-place St. John’s by two games again. Thompson’s second loss in 11 decisions. They will play again Sunday, starting at noon.
