UofL season ends with 3-2 extra inning loss to Vandy

College Baseball

The Kentucky collegiate season came it an end Monday when No. 9 University of Louisville failed to complete two different late comebacks and lost 3-2 on a suicide squeeze from Vanderbilt in the bottom of the tenth inning. The loss ended UofL’s NCAA tournament run just shy of the super regional. The Cards were held scoreless for the first six innings before tieing the game for the first time with a single run in the top of the seventh.

Vanderbilt immediately took the lead back with a run in the bottom of the seventh inning, but UofL sent the game to extra innings when it scored with two outs in the ninth inning. Junior right-handed closer Neil Holland took his first loss of the season in the team’s final game. Junior right-handed pitcher Thomas Royse surrendered eight hits in five and one-third innings but held Vandy to just one run.

Sophomore second baseman Ryan Wright was 2-5 with a run scored, and junior third baseman Phil Wunderlich added two hits of his own. The loss dropped UofL to 1-3 on the season against Vanderbilt and 2-4 against the Southeastern Conference. (Box Score)
