The University of Louisville baseball team scored its ninth consecutive win on Saturday, collecting a 10-3 decision over Kent State on a bitter cold day at Jim Patterson Stadium. Jeff Thompson picked up his third win of the season, while Ty Young had a big day at the plate for the Cardinals (9-1).

Jeff Thompson pitched six plus solid innings and the University of Louisville baseball team had another big day at the plate and on the bases.

The Cardinals pounded out nine hits and stole six bases, winning for a ninth consecutive game with a 10-3 decision over Kent State at Jim Patterson Stadium on a blustery and snowy Saturday afternoon.

Thompson moved to 3-0 on the season, allowing just three hits and two runs while striking out eight in six and two-thirds innings. The junior from Floyd Central High School has now won all three Saturday games this season.

Third baseman Ty Young was 2-for-4 at the plate and had two RBIs, while center fielder Adam Engel was 2-for-4 and scored a run. Second baseman Nick Ratajczak was 1-for-2 with an RBI and three runs scored.

The Cardinals (9-1) are No. 4 in the Baseball America poll and has the school’s longest winning streak since the 2010 team won 13 straight games to open the season. The Cardinals host Kent Sate on Sunday at 1 p.m.
