Louisville's Brendan McKay hits four HRs, drives in nine RBIs

  McKay was the star in the Cardinals' 14-4 win over Eastern Kentucky.

Have a day, Brendan McKay.

Louisville's star dual threat crushed four home runs and drove home nine RBIs in the No. 2 Cardinals' 14-4 victory over Eastern Kentucky Tuesday night.

The cleanup hitter cleared the fence in his first three at bats on homers to right center, right and center, respectively, in the first, second and fourth innings. Following his lone out of the game on a strikeout in the seventh frame, McKay completed the quadfecta in the ninth inning with another home run to right center.

McKay is the first player in Division I baseball this year to connect on four round-trippers in a single game. The junior also tied Louisville's program record for most in a single game, matching Jim LaFountain's output in 1976 against Western Kentucky.

McKay now has 11 home runs and 39 RBIs this season. That goes along with an exceptional year on the mound, where the southpaw is 5-3 with a 1.83 ERA.
