turn in Vanderbilt’s favor. The
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.
After the Bulldogs were retired in order in the top of the ninth, the Commodores earned the victory with
Bleday’s blast that cleared the centerfield wall.
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.
