Cards advance to ACC title game

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Devin Mann homered and drove in three runs, and Louisville advanced to the Atlantic Coast Conference title game with a 5-2 victory over Pittsburgh 5-2 on Saturday.
Mann hit a two-run homer in the seventh inning and had an RBI triple in the first, and Josh Stowers drove in his ninth run of the tournament to help the fifth-seeded Cardinals (43-16) reach their first ACC final. They will play sixth-seeded Florida State on Sunday in the championship.
Ron Washington Jr. pulled the 12th-seeded Panthers (29-26) to 3-2 with his two-run homer off Nick Bennett in the sixth.
Mann put the Cardinals back up by two with his drive to left-center field an inning later.
Stowers, who drove in six runs in Louisville's win over Wake Forest and added two more RBIs against Duke, put the Cardinals up 2-0 in the fourth inning with an RBI double.
