This weekend, Louisville Baseball did to UConn what it does best-sweeping series. In what became the ninth sweep of the season for the Cards, they defeated the Huskies 3-1 in a game that certainly meant more than just another win. Because it was not just any ordinary win, it was Coach Dan McDonnell’s 300th career win (in seven years as HC). McDonnell has proven himself successful, having had six 40-win seasons, five NCAA regional berths, and is the third Louisville Coach to win 300 games.
As usual, Freshman Dace Kime was phenomenal is today’s game, striking out nine players and earning his 5th win of the season. He wasn’t the only Louisville pitcher that had a successful weekend though. UConn scored one run in three games with 21 hits. The Cards are now on a 12-game winning streak and are looking to add on to that with a game in Columbus vs OSU on Tuesday.
Also, a great stat is that McDonnell is 300-138, meaning he has a .684 win percentage.
