Commodore Notes
Vanderbilt went 2-2 on the week with wins over Louisville and No. 1 Tennessee.

The Commodores hosted Louisville on Tuesday night at Hawkins Field and defeated the Cardinals, 4-2, to win the Battle of the Barrel for the second consecutive season. Vanderbilt starting pitcher Devin Futrell earned the win with 5.0 innings of work. Futrell held Louisville to one run on three hits and struck out six batters. Miller Green took over on the mound in the ninth inning with the bases loaded and ended the game with a strikeout to earn his third save on the season. Jonathan Vastine homered in the win, hitting his second leadoff homer on the season in the first inning.

The Dores hosted top-ranked Tennessee to close out the 2024 home slate at Hawkins Field. Tennessee took the first two games but Vanderbilt handed the Volunteers their first shutout on the season in the series finale on Sunday. JD Thompson and Devin Futrell combined for a shutout as the Commodores won 3-0. Thompson and Futrell held the Volunteers to season lows in both hits and runs and combined for 14 strikeouts. Thompson earned the win with 6.0 innings of work. The southpaw matched his career mark with nine strikeouts and held Tennessee to just two hits. For his efforts, Thompson was recognized by the SEC at the Co-Pitcher of the Week.

Alan Espinal hit a two-run homer in the first inning Sunday to give the Vandy pitching staff all the run support it would need.

Vanderbilt wraps up the regular season this weekend at No. 2 Kentucky. The three-game series in Lexington begins Thursday. Game 3 on Saturday will air on SEC Network.
