The University of Louisville baseball team hammered Notre Dame 12-2 to advance in the Big East Tournament against the winner of tonight’s St. John’s-Notre Dame game. The game is scheduled for 10 a.m. Friday. The big blow was a three-run home run by Andrew Clark in the first inning in a game that began Wednesday evening, was shortened by rain, and completed Thursday a.m.

Eight of the nine starters in the lineup had at least one hit. Jeff Arnold was three for four, including his second home run in two days, while batting in three runs. The Cards (42-14) advance to the Big East tournament semifinals for the fourth consecutive year.

Feels right.
