LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The U of L baseball Cardinals will begin play in the College World Series Saturday night at 8:00 pm ET in Omaha against Vanderbilt.  The game will be televised on ESPN2. 

The Cardinals advanced to their second consecutive College World Series and 3rd in 8 years under coach Dan McDonnell by beating Kennesaw State in two straight games at Jim Patterson Stadium on Friday and Saturday.  Freshman Nick Solak continued his hot hitting with a go-ahead two-run homer in the fifth as the Cards beat the Owls 7-4 Saturday night before over 6000 fans.  Solak, from Woodbridge, Illinois, has 15 runs batted in during his last 11 games.

Vanderbilt advanced to its second College World Series with a 12-5 win over Stanford Sunday.  U of L eliminated the Commodores in Super Regional play a year ago in Nashville.

Game two for the Cardinals in the CWS would be either 3:00 pm or 8:00 pm Monday.
