LANE | Cardinal Baseball Honors Continue

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The baseball season ended painfully early for U of L, and there's no trip to Omaha this week, but the honors continue for what was a terrific season.

The Cardinals had a school record six players receive All-America honors Wednesday,  from the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association, including five first-teamers.  

Three pitchers were named to that first team.  Juniors Drew Harrington and Zack Burdi along with undefeated mid-week starter, Sophomore Kade McClure. Sophomore Brendan McKay is a finalist to win the John Olerud award given to the nation's top two-way player for the second straight year.  He was named to the first team as a utility player. 

Junior Corey Ray was chosen as the fifth overall selection in last week's Major League Draft by Milwaukee.  The outfielder was the final first teamer.
    
Junior 2nd-baseman Nick Solak was on the second team. 

The Cardinals finished the season 50-14 after dropping two straight games last weekend to UC-Santa Barbara in the Super Regional.
