Louisville Shortstop Devin Hairston singled in the winning run with one out in the ninth, as Louisville rallied to beat Kentucky 7-6. The victory was the second in a week for the Cardinals over their arch rivals. UofL won in Lexington last Wednesday 9-7. It’s also the fifth straight victory for the Cards against the Cats.
Kentucky led 5-1 in the 7th, but could not put away the third ranked Cards as Louisville scored three in the seventh, two in the eighth, and the walk off in the bottom of the ninth.
Kentucky’s Luke Becker went 2-for-3, while Evan White and Storm Wilson both went 2-for-4 with an RBI.
Anthony Kidston pitched the ninth inning to pick up his first win. Logan Salow was tagged with the loss to even his record at 1-1. The Cats fall to 23-13 and will host SEC foe Arkansas in a three game series starting Thursday.
Louisville wins its sixth straight overall, improving to 30-7. The Cards hit the road for three games at ACC opponent Boston College Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
