TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Ty Young drove in four runs as Louisville avoided elimination in the Tucson Regional on Sunday night with an 11-3 victory over Missouri.
The Cardinals (41-21) scored three runs in the first inning, and pulled away with three runs in the sixth to set up a game Sunday night against host Arizona. Louisville must beat the Wildcats twice to advance to the super regionals.
The Tigers (33-28) pounded 11 hits, led by Scott Sommerfeld who went 2 for 3 with an RBI, but couldn’t put together a serious threat.
Missouri played its final contest as a member of the Big 12. The Tigers will move to the Southeastern Conference beginning this fall.
