Walk-off steal of home clinches Louisville win

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Corey Ray stole home to help No. 4 Louisville complete a 6-5 comeback victory and earn a conference sweep against the visiting Wake Forest Demon Deacons on Saturday evening at Jim Patterson Stadium.

In the series against Wake Forest, the Cardinals (30-9, 19-2 ACC) had stolen 17 bases, with the final one being most dramatic as the Cardinals rallied from a 5-4 deficit to complete the doubleheader sweep following a 10-1 win in the opener.

Zack Burdi was awarded the win to improve to 2-0. Wake Forest's Will Craig was charged with the loss to fall to 1-3 after giving up two runs in 2.2 innings of work.

Trailing 5-4 in the bottom of the ninth, the Cardinals mounted a rally for their fourth walk-off win of the season and the second in the series. With one out, Logan Taylor reached on a bunt single. After a stolen base and an intentional walk to Ray, Brendan McKay hit an infield single to load the bases with one out.

Zach Lucas hit a screamer to the shortstop for the second out. The Cardinals then tied the game on a wild pitch by Craig to Taylor while also moving the runners up a base. A walk to Blake Tiberi loaded the bases and setup the surprise stolen base by Ray to clinch the walk-off victory.
