What a way to end the non-conference list!
The Cincinnati Bearcats outperformed the Louisville Cardinals in 7th, taking a 13-12 win in 10 innings.
Cincinnati Baseball improved to 11-10 with the win and added a serious leap to their move when they entered the league in the American Athletic Conference.
The Bearcats started 8-2 behind before turning on offensive firepower in the later innings.
Eric Santiago, Grad Student’s third baseman, led the Bearcats with two home runs and 5 RBIs in a 3-5 performance.
Fittingly, a native of Louisville won the game for the Bearcats. First baseman Ryan Nicholson won the tenth inning.
The Bearcats turnaround is terribly fast. They made their way to a four-game conference game with East Carolina University that begins Thursday afternoon in Greenville, North Carolina.
