Despite an hour and a half rain delay and an LG&E transformer outage that caused a loss of power to the stadium lights and scoreboard for first four innings, the University of Louisville was able to play a full nine innings against Morehead State on Tuesday.
Fourth-ranked Louisville (7-1) claimed its thirteen consecutive victory over the in-state foe, downing Morehead State 13-4 at a soggy Jim Patterson Stadium.
After spotting the visiting Eagles three runs in the top of the first, the Cardinals responded with five first inning runs and were never threatened again.
U of L took advantage of an opposing pitching staff that walked eight and put three on via hit by pitch, while also pounding out eleven hits.
Freshman Danny Rosenbaum had his biggest day at the plate in his young career. The Lafayette Hill, Penn., native went 2-for-3 at the plate, including his first career home run. He drove in 5 runs and crossed the plate twice.
The Cardinals recorded eight stolen bases in the game, increasing the team total to 39 on the young season. Adam Engel, who leads the team with 12 thefts, and Sutton Whiting each swiped a pair.
Louisville will return to action when it welcomes Kent State for a weekend series beginning on Friday at 3:00p.m.
