Columbia, MO: Louisville Two Out Ralliers

By Jay Dryburgh - June 02, 2007

Louisville has pushed another two runs across, and all three have come with two outs up on the board. Yesterday against Miami, they scored the first nine runs against the Canes with two outs.

Quickly one of my favorite players of this regional is Chris Cates, the UL shortstop. He is 5'3", the smallest player in Division-1A baseball. A guy so small has a tiny strike zone, and he really works the count as the teams nine hole hitter, acting as a second leadoff guy to compliment Boomer Whiting. Cates has also only missed one game in his entire collegiate career, the second game of a double-header his freshman year.

He's played in 223 straight games since. He reached on an error and scored the last inning, and despite his size, his range has been impressive at short.

3-0 Cards here in the 4th.
