Com­modores got a run just ahead of Neff’s clutch strike­out, but couldn’t cap­i­tal­ize any fur­ther. Then, in the bot­tom

of the eighth, Van­der­bilt tied the game cour­tesy of a one-out triple from Har­ri­son Ray and an RBI sin­gle by Ethan Paul.

Van­der­bilt’s tri­umph now sets up a de­ci­sive third game

to­day. First pitch in Nashville is set for 5 p.m. The vic­tor will head to the Col­lege World Se­ries.
