Louisville tied the game in the bottom of the second inning on Zach Vincej 's single, but the Tribe pulled in front in the top of the fourth. Newman led off the frame with a bunt single, and he later scored when Joey Terdoslavich hit a sacrifice fly to center field. It gave the game its final margin of 3-2.
Jackson Stephens (7-7) started for Louisville and struggled with his command. He walked five batters in four innings and took the loss.
