Baseball at Louisville

by SID - Beautiful day in Louisville, Partly Sunny and 63 degrees. Patterson Stadium is one of the unique setups in college baseball. The entire field is made of field turf. The places where dirt should be is red field turf. Only the pitcher's mound has real dirt. The setup should play slow, but one thing players will need to avoid is to over slide the bases.

Admission is free to all games and beer is sold. The setting behind the outfield wall is Papa John's Stadium (football) with an active train track in between. Behind home plate and to the right is Churchill Downs.

Alright here is the lineup for tonight with a new person playing centerfield: Jordan Wormsley. The sophomore from Knoxville is a solid defender who showed some offensive flashes a year ago, batting 7-for-13 (.538) in limited action.

Brian Harris SS
Steven Liddle RF
Curt Casali 1B
Andrew Giobbi C
Aaron Westlake DH
Joe Loftus LF
Riley Reynolds 2B
Jason Esposito 3B
Jordan Wormsley CF

Taylor Hill will get the start on the mound.. He is 1-1 with a 4.50 ERA in 14 appearances, including two starts. He has 34 strikeouts and just seven walks in 30.0 innings, but teams are hitting at a .301 clip off of him.

Follow the action on
