Take the day off, Cards. Soak in the whirlpool, absorb the lineament, be ready to go again Friday morning.
Mercy rule prevails after seventh inning, Louisville slicing Villanova 14-3 in a cacophony of 16 hits, almost half of them for extra bases. One of them an opposite-field 19th home run of the season for Chris Dominguez.
Top-seeded St. John’s is gone from the Big East Baseball Tournament, hammered again, this time by Seton Hall, 12-6. Domers out, too, courtesy of West Virginia, 13-6.
The Cards will meet the winner of Thursday’s Villanova-Seton Hall game on TGIF day at 10 a.m. and then again at 5 p.m., win or lose.
Championship is Saturday at 1 p.m.
