Senior first baseman Ryan Aljancic brought Louisville to life with a 2-run home run to center field to cut the Wadsworth deficit in half at 4-2. Senior second baseman Broc Pickens singled to start the inning and scored via Aljancic’s team-leading second fence-clearing blast of the season.

Junior right fielder Zack Seaman, senior shortstop JT Popick, and Pickens all singled to load the bases. Aljancic grounded out to short in the next at-bat which brought home Seaman from third to trim the disadvantage to 4-3.

Senior catcher Kaedin Gotshall followed and lined a 1-1 pitch to centerfield for a 2-out, 2-run double scoring the tying run in Popick and the go-ahead run in Pickens to put Louisville in front 5-4.


Warner Goes the Distance for 3rd Win
