LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Coco Johnson drove in three runs and Louisville scored five times in the first four innings to cruise past Oklahoma State 12-3 on Sunday and advance to the super regionals.

With the win, the Cardinals (49-12) reached the super regionals for the third time in school history, and first since 2009. All three super regional appearances have come under seventh-year coach Dan McDonnell.

Louisville chased Cowboys starter Kenton Bevacqua out of the game after a three-run third inning. In the next inning against reliever Brendan McCurry, Adam Engel blooped a ball down the right-field line that drove in two runs as Engel ended up with a triple.

The Cardinals added six runs in the top of the eighth to seal the win.

The Cowboys (41-19) were eliminated two wins short of qualifying for their first super regional since 2007, when they lost to Louisville in the same stadium.
