"It was easy to see early today that we came out of the gate focused as an offensive group. We scored two in the first and then followed that with four more in the second and that was big for the momentum."
"I haven't been swinging as well as lately as I'd like to, but I've been able to watch a lot of video of my swings and make some adjustments. This game is all about making those small adjustments."
"Tomorrow is huge because Coach Mac has challenged us to go earn a sweep. He's challenged us to make a great weekend out of this and finish off a good week. It's big to have a game like today and have some momentum going into tomorrow's game. Hopefully, we can make that momentum carry over."
Louisville Sophomore INF Ty Young
"We've really seen our pitches the last two days and we've had a lot of good at-bats, especially with two strikes. We've also been pretty good at getting runners in with two outs."
"I felt really good out there today. Yesterday, I had a couple of strikeouts, but I found my two-strike swing today."
"It's really important to keep the good team morale going and create some positive momentum going into BIG EAST Conference play next weekend. That needs to start with a good performance on Sunday."
