The University of Louisville baseball team is coming off a tough loss to Indiana.
But the fifth-ranked Cardinals still have plenty to play for this weekend, hosting Cincinnati for a three-game series that begins at 6 o'clock on Thursday night.
The Cardinals are tied with Central Florida atop the America Athletic Conference standings. Both teams have three games to play.
"It's a big weekend, no doubt," U of L baseball coach Dan McDonnell said. "We just have to focus and play good baseball, that's all I'm asking. I want to see us play good baseball."
U of L is 40-13 and 16-5 in league play, while Cincinnati is 22-27 and 6-15 but the Bearcats have won four of the past five games.
Kyle Funkhouser will get the start on Thursday night and will try to go 11-2 on the season.
Central Floria (33-20, 16-5) will play at Connecticut (23-27, 7-13) this weekend after upsetting No. 4 Florida State on Tuesday.
