The Louisville Cardinals beat Vanderbilt 2-1 in game two of their Super Regional series in Nashville.

With the loss the Commodores are eliminated from the NCAA tournament, ending their season with a 54-12 record.

Jeff Thompson surrendered one run in seven strong innings to make two early runs stand up in Louisville's 2-1 victory over No. 2 overall seed Vanderbilt in a NCAA super regional on Sunday, sending the Cardinals to the College World Series for the second time.

The Big East Conference pitcher of the year struck out nine, allowed three hits and threw 124 pitches. Zak Wasserman and Sutton Whiting drove in runs in the second inning for the Cardinals (51-12).

Left-hander Cody Ege earned his first career save by striking out Mike Yastrzemski with runners on the corners. Louisville is making its first trip to the CWS since 2007.

Vanderbilt freshman Zander Wiel homered in the sixth inning to account for the only extra-base hit of the series. The Commodores (54-12) stranded 11 runners for the second straight game.

Louisville defeated Vandy 5-3 on Saturday.
