Showdown of the day:
Freshman Zak Wasserman capped Louisville's four-run ninth inning with a walk-off RBI single to give Louisville a 10-9 win in a back-and-forth contest against rival Kentucky. The Cardinals led 5-4 with two outs in the eighth when nearly untouchable closer Neil Holland was summoned with the bases loaded. Holland got Louisville out of the jam with a strikeout, but Kentucky got to him for five runs in the top of the ninth to take a 9-6 lead. But Louisville responded in the bottom of the frame to split the season series against Kentucky. The game drew a Louisville regular-season-record crowd of 4,039.
