Yes, this is the part of the report when I’m obliged to tell you that Cavan is the son Craig Biggio. You may have heard of him. The elder Biggio collected over 3,000 hits over a 20 year Major League career that culminated with his Hall of Fame induction in 2015.
Louisville used solid starting pitching performances and timely hitting to sweep Friday’s doubleheader against Notre Dame and clinch the series. While the opener was a back and forth nail biter that offered many thrills, it was MLB draft prospect Nick Solak who stole the show in dramatic fashion with a walk-off 11th inning home run.
