26-25 Never Felt So Good; Commodores Summit Mount-.500 For First Time All Year

Vanderbilt had won 3 straight SEC series heading into their weekend match-up in Baton Rogue against the #4 Tigers of LSU. Make that 4 straight.

Down 1 in the ninth, Mike Yastrzemski hit a game-timing home run to right to knot the game at 4. In the bottom of the tenth, Connor Harrell roped a triple to lead off the 10th but was cut-down at home on an unsuccessful squeeze play.  With runners on first and second and two outs, Tony Kemp, previously hitless on the day, knocked a single up the middle to give the Commodores a 5-4 lead. Will Clinard sat down the Tigers 1-2-3 in the 10th to secure the win. 

Vanderbilt is now 26-25 overall and 13-14 in the SEC. They will host Ole Miss next weekend in a series that is critical for both teams. At 14-13, the Rebels are currently the 5th seed in the SEC Tournament field, but are only a 1/2 game up on Georiga.  Vanderbilt is tied with Arkansas and Mississippi State at 13-14 for seeds anywhere from 7 to 9.  Auburn, at 12-15, is just 1 game back and will host the Gators on the Plains to conclude the season. Seeds 5 through 10 are very much up for grabs, meaning there will be a lot of scoreboard watching next Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

If Vanderbilt can win 2 of 3 against Ole Miss, all they will need to do is win one in the SEC Tournament to finish the season above .500.  If they sweep the Rebels, they will gurantee a better than .500 record, regardless of what happens in Hoover. For a team that started the season 1-7, it is quite an accomplishment for Tim Corbin's team to be in the position they're in. There isn't a squad in America playing baseball, and these Vanderbilt Commodores hope they've still got a lot of baseball left to play.
