Seniors out on a winning note

Justin Amlung is congratulated by Dan McDonnell during Senior Day ceremonies before the University of Louisville-Morehead baseball game Tuesday at Jim Patterson Stadium.

Amlung, who attended St. X, is actually a junior but is expected to go early in the Major League Baseball draft. He went from being a walk-on during his freshman year to becoming the Cardinal ace the past two seasons, posting an 8-3 won-lost record this year.

Other players saying goodbye on Senior Day were Stewart Ijames, Travis Tingle and Derek Self.

Louisville used eight pitchers during the game, with Self on the mound in the ninth inning, sealing an 8-3 victory. Ijames belted a three-run double in the eighth inning to end the suspense.
