Askew had the bases loaded, but was able to keep the Cardinals at bay and stop their chances of scoring in the first inning.
Louisville would take an early lead at the top of the second inning. When Lucas Dunn would rip a single sending Justin Lavey across home plate giving the Cards a 1-0 lead.

Keyshawn Askew was replaced by Sam Weatherly after just 2.2 innings. Askew gave up five hits and three runs.
Bryce Teodosio would bring the momentum to the Tigers in the bottom of the third inning. Teodosio would single to left field, followed by a single from James Parker and would score on a Sam Hall sac-fly that would narrow the score 3-1. Logan Davidson would do what Logan Davidson does best and hit a homerun soaring into the Cajun Cafe tying the ball game 3-3.
The Tigers would take the lead 4-3 in the bottom of the 4th inning, Bryar Hawkins would score on a James Parker single.
