The University of Louisville rallied late on Friday to reach a 5-3 win over Kennesaw State.
Sophomore Kyle Funkhouser, who opened the series for the Cardinals, managed to shut down the Owls in the 6th and 7th, holding their lead at 3-1. Senior Kyle Gibson dropped a bunt in the 8th to send junior Grant Kay in for the score. Freshman Nick Solak then secured two runs with a right-center drive. Pitchers Kyle McGrath and Nick Burdi maintained Funkhouserâ€™s scoreless streak in the 8th and 9th and keep the Owls at 3.
This is Louisvilleâ€™s second time to host an NCAA super regional.
