Two quick news items to report before Aaron Fitt gets starting Tweeting and blogging from the Astros College Classic in Houston:
• Louisville lost two starters to injuries that will shelve them for at least the next two weeks. Senior first baseman Andrew Clark has a stress fracture in his left rib cage, while junior outfielder Josh Richmond broke a bone in his left hand on Wednesday in a victory against Evansville.
Clark is Louisville's current home runs, on-base percentage and RBIs leader, hitting .364/.529/.682 with two homers and 12 RBIs. He was a second-team all-Big East selection a year ago, when he led Louisville with 55 walks. Richmond, the team's starting right fielder and leadoff batter, is hitting .333/.444/.367. He was injured when he crashed into the right-field wall diving for a fly ball in the first inning of the Evansville game. Louisville plays host to Le Moyne this weekend.
• East Carolina suspended indefinitely two freshmen, middle infielder Bryan Bass and lefthander Tyler Joyner, for violations of team policy, coach Billy Godwin said in a release. Joyner has pitched in one game this season, getting four outs and giving up four hits and three runs; Bass, who started the season opener but has been used as a pinch-runner and defensive replacement at second base and shortstop five times since then, is 0-for-5 with two runs scored and four strikeouts.
