The University of Louisville (30-13, 13-5) bullpen combined for five innings of one-hit, shutout baseball and Chris Dominguez and Daniel Burton each drove in two runs as the Cardinals defeated USF 4-2 Sunday to capture the weekend series two games to one.
The win was number 30 for the Cardinals, making them the first team in the Big East Conference to reach that mark this season. It also ties the 1999 and 2002 teams for the second fastest to 30 wins, doing it in 43 games. The 1984 Cards opened the year 30-9.
Louisville, which is currently a game behind St. John's for the Big East Conference lead, has five regular season home games remaining. The Cardinals will return to Patterson Stadium on Wednesday to face in-state foe Eastern Kentucky at 6:00 p.m. Admission is free.
