Nashville, Tn – Sunday’s game at Hawkins Field unfolded in memorable and historic fashion for the Vanderbilt baseball team: It started with an offensive explosion and ended with a dogpile.
The Commodores clinched a spot in the College World Series by posting a 12-5 victory over Stanford in Game 3 of the Super Regional before a sold-out, mostly Commodore-crazed crowd of 3,626. The victory, which was propelled by a five-run first inning and the stellar relief pitching of freshman Hayden Stone, sends Vanderbilt (46-19) to Omaha, Neb., for next week’s College World Series, where the Commodores will face Louisville in their opener on Saturday at 7:00pm.
Nashville, Tn – The Vanderbilt baseball team is accustomed to celebrating walk-off wins at Hawkins Field — not being the victims of one.
But that was the scenario Saturday, when Stanford’s Wayne Taylor hit a walk-off homer in the bottom of the ninth that lifted the Cardinal to a 5-4 victory over Vanderbilt in Game 2 of the Super Regional. The best-of-three series is now tied at one game apiece, and the teams will play the decisive Game 3 on Sunday at 2:00pm, with the winner advancing to Omaha, Neb., for the College World Series.
