Hoover, Ala – No. 19 Vanderbilt was eliminated from the Southeastern Conference Tournament on Thursday with a 7-2 loss to No. 10 Ole Miss at The Hoover Met.
For the third time in three games the Commodores (41-18) scored first, scratching out a run in the first inning. The Dores worked a little two-out magic to get the run thanks to Bryan Reynolds beating out an infield single. Zander Wiel followed with a walk and Vince Conde singled up the middle for a 1-0 Vandy lead after one. Conde’s single, however, was the only hit the Dores’ collected with runners in scoring position as the Commodores went 1-for-11 with runners in scoring position in the loss.

Is Julio Teheran a true No. 1 starter now, never or someday?
He got the Opening Day nod this year by default – ‘default’ being defined here as ‘only starting pitcher with a working throwing arm on Opening Day’. He’s been good-to-great at times, but what does that mean?
