Louisville baseball No. 3 seed but humble and hungry

A force with which to be dealt.cardinal logo

The University of Louisville enters the 2015 NCAA baseball tournament as the No. 3 seed, hosting a regional for a third straight season. Almost expected these days, but only because Louisville remains humble and hungry.

UofL also hosted the regional round of the NCAA Championship in 2009, 2010, 2013 and 2014 while also hosting super regionals in 2007 and 2014. This marks the Cardinals’ eighth NCAA postseason berth in the last nine seasons and the program’s ninth NCAA appearance overall.

Louisville will host No. 4 Morehead State on Friday at 6 p.m., following the game between No. 2 Bradley against No. 3 Michigan at 2 p.m.

The winner of Friday’s first round games will play on Saturday at 4 p.m., while the two losing teams will play an elimination game on Saturday at noon. The winner of Saturday’s elimination game will play the losing team from Saturday night’s winner’s bracket game in an elimination game on Sunday at noon, with the winner advancing to play the winner of Saturday night’s winner’s bracket game on Sunday at 4 p.m.

If needed, the two teams from Sunday’s second game will return for the final game of the Louisville Regional on Monday at 7 p.m.
