Lafayette Hill Native Hits Two Homers to Help Louisville Advance to NCAA Regional Finals

Lafayette Hill native and Plymouth Whitemarsh High School graduate Danny Rosenbaum hit two home runs on Saturday, June 4th against The Ohio State Buckeyes to help the University of Louisville Cardinals advance to the NCAA Regional Finals for baseball.

From the university’s website:

Following a scoreless second, Louisville put the game away with scoring eight runs on eight hits in the third inning, the sixth time this season they have plated eight or more runs in a single inning. The first six batters of the inning reached base and scored, starting with a RBI single by McKay to plate Smith and a RBI double from Hairston to score Solak. Following a RBI double by Tiberi, Rosenbaum crushed a 1-2 pitch for his first two-run homer of the game.

An inning later, Rosenbaum added to the lead when he followed a single from Tiberi by sending the first pitch of his at-bat against Austin Woodby over the wall in left center for his second home run of the day and the 15th of his collegiate career. Louisville plated a third run in the fourth on a RBI double by Smith to score Taylor before junior Colin Lyman drove Hairston home with a RBI groundout in the fifth.

With the win, Louisville advanced to the Regional Final where it faced Wright State. Louisville defeated Wright State 3-1 on Sunday, June 5th and now advances to the Super Regional.
