Louisville bats awaken

[stextbox id=”custom”]
The University of Louisville baseball team may have finally found its hitting eye over the weekend, collecting 32 hits while sweeping three games from Georgetown University by scores of 3-2, 11-3 and 9-4.

Ryan Wright and Stewart Ijames both had grand slam home runs in the second game of the series on Saturday. Ijames followed up with his 10th home run of the season Sunday.

Louisville has won its last nine Big East series at home, the longest active streak in the conference and the 10th-longest active stretch in Division I baseball. U of L has not dropped a BIG EAST set at home since Notre Dame took two of three in 2009 (April 24-26).

The Cards play two at home against Eastern Michigan this week at 6 p.m. Tuesday and at noon on Wednesday before traveling to Seton Hall for a three-game weekend series.

The 24th ranked men’s tennis team defeated second-seeded host Notre Dame 4-2 in the Big East Conference Championship finals, marking the second consecutive league title for U of L (17-11).

The Cardinals earn the league’s automatic bid to the NCAA tournament. Pairings will be announced Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. on NCAA.com.[/stextbox]
