LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - University of Louisville first baseman/pitcher Brendan McKay tied a school record by hitting four home runs in the #2 Cards 14-4 win on Tuesday at Eastern Kentucky.

"Hitting four home runs in a game is almost like a dream," McKay said. McKay's total equaled the school record. Jim LaFountain hit four homers against Western Kentucky on April 24, 1976.

He went 4-5, with the four homers and drove in 9 runs. The junior is expected one of the top picks in the Major League Baseball Draft in June. 

"It's just weird knowing that all of your hits were home runs." 

McKay had not had a multi-homer game since he was 12. He now has 11 home runs this season. He is also 5-3 on the mound with a 1.83 earned run average and has struck out 83 in 59 innings.

The Cards are now 34-6 and are back in action on Wednesday at Louisville Slugger Field. They host Northern Kentucky at 6 p.m.
