LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The University of Cincinnati baseball team concluded its 2014 season on Saturday afternoon with a 10-0 loss at the No. 5 University of Louisville. The game ended in the bottom of the seventh inning due to the American Athletic Conference get-away day run rule.

Cincinnati ends the season with a 22-31 mark and a 6-18 record in conference play. Louisville improves to 43-13 and 19-5 and heads into next week’s American championship as the No. 1 seed.

Louisville proved why it is the nation’s fifth-ranked team, holding UC to two hits and no runs scored. The Cardinals connected for 14 hits and 10 runs in the series finale.

Sophomores Devin Wenzel (Blandon, Pa./Fleetwood Area) and Ian Happ (Pittsburgh, Pa./Mt. Lebanon) recorded the hits for the Bearcats. Senior Ryan Quinn (Sparta, N.J./Sparta) drew a pair of walks in the contest to put two blemishes on the line for Louisville starting pitcher Anthony Kidston.

The Cardinals jumped ahead early by scoring one run in the first and putting up a four spot in the second. Starting pitcher Andrew Zellner (Farmersville, Ohio/Valley View) gave up a pair of hits in the opening frame and struggled through four hits and four runs in the second before being lifted for reliever Mitch Patishall (Pendleton, Ind./Pendleton).

Patishall delivered back-to-back scoreless innings for Louisville but surrendered another run in the fifth to expand the lead to 6-0. The Cardinals scored four in the bottom of the seventh off of freshman reliever Austin Woodby (Springboro, Ohio/Springboro), ending the game on a 3-RBI double by pinch hitter Shane Crain.

After earning the start against Louisville, Senior Justin Glass (Fort Wayne, Ind./Carroll) concluded his career as the active NCAA leader in consecutive starts. The senior started 222 straight games, every game of his career, to rank first in the nation.
