The Cardinal Bird was kept busy signing autographs for members of the Yankees, a Little League team from Mt. Washington, during Louisville baseball’s 14-2 romp over Notre Dame at Jim Patterson Stadium.

Looking like there could be a trip to Clearwater after all.

With Jeff Gardner pounding two home runs and a double, Ryan Wright another homer and two other hits, the University of Louisville pounded Notre Dame 14-2 Thursday in the first game of a three-game series.

Righthander Derek Self spaced eight singles over seven innings but allowed only one run to earn his third win against two losses. This game he had plenty of support from his teammates with 14 hits.

Louisville is now tied with Cincinnati and West Virginia for fourth in the Big East, a half game ahead of seventh-place Notre Dame, one game in front of eighth-place Seton Hall and two games clear of ninth-place USF.

One more win will assure UofL of a spot in the Big East baseball tournament next week.

One thought on “Louisville Baseball pounds Notre Dame”
  1. It was a nice evening all around, even though the attendance was a bit disappointing. Nothing like being at Patterson with a good win and some great caramel corn. The Observer surely knows how to celebrate his anniversary. Go Cards!
