One of the earmarks of this college baseball season is that it has coincided with one of the wettest springs in recent memory, raining almost every weekend, home and away, over the last month or so.
However, Dan McDonnell’s has not had a game canceled because of bad weather. He has doubled up, rescheduled, worked around the elements, played during constant rain. More stormy weather expected the next couple of days, including Tuesday when U of L closes the home season out against Eastern Kentucky.
Bring an umbrella. The game will go on.
Drizzling again most of Sunday in the University of Louisville 8-4 decision over St. John’s, keeping U of L in the chase for the Big East Conference title. With three conference games to go, Dan McDonnell’s team is a half game out of first place.
Stewart Ijames, the missing element with his injured shoulder last season, unfazed by the wet bat handles or soaked baseballs, knocking two of them out of park, collecting six runs batted in. Can’t say it enough: good to see him back.
Louisville closes out the regular season this weekend with three games at Notre Dame while UConn hosts Seton Hall.
