UofL BASEBALL | Louisville trounces Indiana, Kade McClure remains unbeaten

05/17/2016 11:00 PM

The no. 5 University of Louisville Baseball team grabbed it’s 33rd home win of the season on Tuesday, beating regional rival Indiana University 9-2. The Cards improved to 43-10 overall, 33-1 at Jim Patterson Stadium, and are a perfect 13-0 in their midweek games.

“That’s not something you ever talk about. I don’t think you ever expect it. Midweek baseball is challenging,” said Louisville coach Dan McDonnell. “Usually it’s younger arms. Sometimes guys are coming out of class. Sometimes you are on a bus for two or three hours, and you’re pulling up to a stadium and hustling to play. There’s so much parity in college baseball, and I tip my cap to this group. It obviously started with Kade McClure and how consistent he was on the mound.”

McClure is now 11-0 after Tuesday’s outing where he pitched six innings, allowing five hits, and two unearned runs. The bottom of the sixth is where U of L did most of their offensive damage, scoring eight runs after finding themselves down 2-0. Louisville batted 12 players and recorded seven hits in that inning alone. Corey Ray paced the batting efforts of the Cards, going 3-for-4 with a run scored, an RBI, and one stolen base. .

Louisville is now faced with a weekend series with Wake Forest where they can lock the ACC Atlantic title for the second straight year. The series will take place on Thursday, Friday and Saturday instead of the typical Friday-Sunday format.
