Vanderbilt Loses to South Carolina; Drops Series

Commodores lost 2-0 to the SEC East leading South Carolina Gamecocks, and fall to .500 in the East, and 3 games behind South Carolina. The 2-0 loss was disappointing because, yet again, the Commodore bats were largely silent. In fact, Vanderbilt only set 27 batters to the plate (the minimum). Brian Harris got 2 hits, but was caught in 2 double plays that erased the base-runner. No Commodore reached second base (insert joke here).

Consider this: Vanderbilt's two losing pitchers had a combined line of 16 2/3 innings, 4 earned runs, 6 walks, and 11 strike outs. With a line like that, you expect a 2 wins.

The Commodores are back at in on Tuesday against MTSU, before hosting Auburn for a 3 game series in Nashville next weekend, where they'll look to start making up ground in the East.

Not that it matters, but Harris was on second base when he got doubled off in the 7th inning.

I could write a regular column about how bad american idol sucks.

Maybe start with a top ten list of things that suck, but not as much.

Whaddaya think?
