Omaha, Neb –Texas used four early runs and stellar pitching to top Vanderbilt 4-0 and force the Commodores into an elimination game.
Vanderbilt (48-20) starter Tyler Ferguson struggled with command from the first pitch, hitting Texas (46-20) leadoff hitter Brooks Marlow with his first pitch of the game.
Ferguson followed up with a walk and a hit by pitch to load the bases with no outs. After a strikeout, the Dores looked to have an opportunity to get out of the inning with a double play ball but C.J. Hinojosa’s ground ball hit second base umpire Mark Uyl for a single that scored the first run of the game.

It is no secret I am a Spurs fan. Just like heroes at the end of old kung fu movies, standing over the defeated body of the villain who killed their master, I am basking in the glow of satisfied vengeance. With three dominating performances in a row, the Spurs avenged last season’s heartbreaking loss to the Heat and became the 2013-14 NBA Champions.
