After having a successful run in their own park during the NCAA Baseball regional and super-regional rounds, the Louisville Cardinals are headed back to Omaha for their second consecutive visit to the College World Series.
On a hot streak, Louisville has not lost a game yet in the tournament, besting Kent State, Kansas and Kentucky in the double-elimination regionals and then sweeping Kennesaw State in the best-of-three super regionals. Cards fans are now hoping that their streak isn’t just for schools that start with a “K” as Louisville (50-15) prepares to face off against Vanderbilt (46-19). Vandy is close to a similar hot streak, winning all of their tournament games except for a 5-4 loss to Stanford in game two of their super regionals. The cards are hoping for a repeat of last year’s action when they beat the Commodores in super regional play.
Louisville faces Vanderbilt at 8 P.M this Saturday, June 14 in the second game of the tournament’s double-elimination bracket play, immediately following the 3 P.M. opener between UC Irvine and Texas. Winners of today’s games will fill in the other half of the bracket as teams battle to reach the championship finals starting on June 23. You can watch the game live on ESPN2.
