Next up Pitchers Adam Wolf and Lincoln Henzman celebrate after the Cardinals beat rival Kentucky in the Super Regional to earn the team's fourth trip to the College World Series. Several Cardinals had stellar performances including junior Drew Ellis, who hit three home runs and junior Brendan McKay, who set a school record for single season and career strikeouts. McKay, a pitcher and first baseman, followed his Super Regional success by becoming the highest MLB draft selection in Cardinals history. McKay was drafted fourth overall by the Tampa Bay Rays. Ellis, who plays first and third base, was the 44th pick, selected in the second round by the Arizona Diamondbacks. Other players drafted include Devin Hairston, Henzman and Kade McClure.
