For Louisville baseball, they have been playing great as of late. The Cardinals are coming off of a series sweep of number 15 Virginia including a shutout in Monday’s game. Louisville is also 14-1 in the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) this season.

The game will start at 6 pm on Wednesday afternoon at Jim Patterson Stadium in Louisville. This should be a good test for both teams as they are both playing very well as of late. Will Louisville keep the hot conference play going? Or will Kentucky’s experience with top-ranked teams payoff for them in the game?
