This Week's C-USA Opponent Notes: Louisville

From staff, C-USA and U of L reports

Cardinals on a roll

Louisville extended its winning ways to eight straight games by sweeping a doubleheader from Akron Tuesday, 3-1 in the first game and 6-2 in the nightcap.

The streak is a season high and the wins end the Cards' home season with a record of 27-6 in games at Cardinal Stadium.

U of L visits Conference USA foe East Carolina for a Thursday-Friday-Saturday series to close out the regular season.

Louisville swept its fourth C-USA series of the season last weekend by taking all three games from UAB.

The Cards were rewarded with a No. 28 ranking in the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper poll and moved within a half-game of Conference USA leader Houston.

Senior third baseman MIKE BUDAK hit two home runs in Sunday's 7-1 win, giving him four homers in the series. He hit .438 (7-for-16) last week with nine RBIs.

Sophomore outfielder MARK JURICH hit a grand slam in Saturday's 12-3 win, becoming the fourth different Louisville player to hit a grand slam this season. MORGAN BOJORUQEZ hit one earlier in the week at Evansville.

Junior outfielder DAVE WILLIAMS, Jr. has a 15-game hitting streak in which he is 24-for-60 with 11 RBIs, 17 runs scored, four doubles, two triples and five stolen bases.

Freshman left-handed pitcher ZACH JACKSON picked up two more wins last week to give him nine, one off the school record for single season victories, held by Scott Reburn (1984). The nine wins are the most ever by a U of L freshman. Louisville needs just three more wins to tie the school record of 38, set in 1980.
