Following a big weekend in Texas, the fourth-ranked University of Louisville baseball team returned home with an 11-1 victory over Morehead State on Tuesday at Jim Patterson Stadium.
Louisville (11-1) has now won six straight games after reaching double figures in runs for the fifth time in the last six games. The Cards also tallied double-digit hits for the seventh consecutive game.
Ryan McCoy opened the scoring for Louisville with a run-scoring single in the first, as the Cards scored in fifth of the first six innings. Brandon Anderson added a run with a groundout in the second to start a three-RBI day.
Isaac Humphrey and JT Benson recorded back-to-back RBI doubles in the third before Anderson made it three straight run-scoring knocks with a single. Christian Knapczyk capped the four-run frame with a double off the right field wall.
In the fourth, Humphrey put two runs on the board with one swing. The junior launched his second home run of the year into the trees in right field to make it an 8-0 game.
Morehead State (9-4) grabbed its lone run of the day in the sixth, but Louisville answered right back.
Haven Mangrum tripled home two runs in the bottom half of the frame and Anderson added his third RBI to finish off the scoring.
Seven different pitchers took the mound for the Cards, as the Louisville pitching staff held the opponent to one run or fewer for the sixth time in 12 games.
Kade Grundy (2-0) won his second straight midweek start with three shutout innings. Kaleb Corbett, Patrick Forbes, Will Koger, Riley Phillips and Tucker Biven each turned in scoreless innings. The Cards matched their season high with 15 strikeouts in the win.
Louisville welcomes Dayton to Jim Patterson Stadium for a three-game series this weekend. First pitch on Friday is scheduled for 3 p.m. ET.
