Wake Up Call: St. John’s 6, Louisville 5

Good thing no Courier-Journal coverage on this one, not with the game ending at 12:45 a.m.

Too much, one presumes Dan McDonnell assumes, for super saver Neil Holland to get the call two games in a row to preserve a 4-3 lead going into the eighth inning.

Darn.

Righthanded reliever Tony Zych giving up three runs in the eighth inning to give St. John’s the boost it needed to get past Louisville 6-5.

Phil Wunderlich backsliding into his late season slump again.

Three Louisville errors not much help either.

Losers bracket. It’s been a while.
