UL's Wright comments on Vandy rematch

by Barca Blog

Louisville second baseman Ryan Wright was 2-for-5 with a homer, two RBI and two runs in the Cards' 11-2 win over Saint Louis Friday night. Following the game, Wright talked about UL's matchup with Vanderbilt (Saturday at 3 p.m. CT).

On anything extra facing Vanderbilt...

"No, nothing extra. The media likes to make a big deal about how we beat them last year and the 17 inning game down there this year, but they're just a really talented ballclub top to bottom, have a lot of really good arms and so we are expected to have a really tight game just battling it out."

On going against Sonny Gray...
"I was kind of expecting it. It's exciting because he is one of the top arms in the country and one of the top arms in his conference. We're going to have to be ready, he throws really hard and that's what the postseason baseball is all about, being able to hit the fastball."

On having an advantage with Vanderbilt emptying their bullpen today...
"I guess they used a lot more arms than they needed to, but at the same time I'm sure they have three or four good arms out of the bullpen that didn't throw today. Back to that 17 inning game down in Nashville this year it seems like they ran out arm after arm, so I'm sure they have a few arms left. Obviously, it would be nice if we could get the starter out of there early, but we're going to have to scratch and claw to get every run."
