Michigan baseball crushed by Louisville, 20-1, in NCAA tournament

It was a familiar scenario for Michigan baseball in its NCAA Tournament Regional Final against 13-seeded Louisville on Sunday: hitting the ball early, challenging outfielders with speed on bases and forcing the opponent to swing more often in the hope of a comeback.

The only problem was that it was the Cardinals who struck and the Wolverines left behind. Louisville put six of its first eight batters on base en route to a four-run first inning and scored in six of nine innings. The Wolverines had no answer on the plate, however, losing 20-1 to force a win-win Monday game for a spot in the super regional against either Texas A&M or TCU (whose College Station regional final started late Sunday in Texas, with another Monday game also possible).
