Louisville Baseball Regional Matchups Announced

Today at noon, we learned that Louisville will not be a national seed, due in part to the fact that they had a few disappointing losses in the Big East Tourney, paired with their weaker S.O.S. than other national seeds.  Instead, the Cards will host a region, but will also have the possibility of facing a national seed in the super regional.  And of course, that national seed for Louisville is #2 Vanderbilt, a team that beat Louisville 10-2 this season.  Louisville’s regional is as follows:

Media preview

Sickening to think that Louisville was a few wins away from earning a national seed and avoiding a Vanderbilt matchup.  Louisville just now has to look forward and they’ll face Bowling Green (24-29, 202nd in RPI) at 6 pm on Friday.  Miami (36-23, 19th in RPI) will play Oklahoma State (39-17, 52nd in RPI) will play at 2 pm on Friday.  This is going to be a tough region, and some analysts are saying it’ll be the best region pitching-wise and should be full of low-scoring games.  Anyways, it’s gonna be a fun few weeks.  GO CARDS!
