Omaha, Neb – The Commodores are going to be playing for a national championship on Monday night after defeating Texas, 4-3, in a winner-take-all contest Saturday night at the College World Series in Omaha.
Vanderbilt loaded the bases in the bottom of the 10th inning and won the game on an infield hit from Tyler Campbell that scored right fielder Rhett Wiseman from third. Wiseman was among five Commodore players to notch two hits on the night.

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.
