LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Nick Solak's two-run homer in the top of the fifth inning propelled Louisville to a 7-4 win over Kennesaw State on Saturday night, sending the Cardinals to their second straight College World Series and third in school history.

The Cardinals (50-15) have appeared in the College World Series three times since coach Dan McDonnell was hired in 2007. Before his arrival in Louisville, the Cardinals had never won a game in the NCAA tournament.

Kennesaw State catcher Max Pentecost, the 11th pick in the Major League Baseball draft, gave the Owls a lead with a bases-loaded, two-run double in the bottom of the third. Through three innings, the Owls (40-24) led 4-2.

But Louisville's Cole Sturgeon singled in a run with one out in the fifth, and he was on first when Solak's high fly ball cleared the left-field fence.
