Commodore Notes
Vanderbilt defeated Middle Tennessee at home Tuesday and dropped the series at third-ranked Texas A&M over the weekend to go 1-3 on the week. The Commodores enter this week No. 13 in the D1Baseball poll and will visit Lipscomb on Tuesday before hosting Florida for three games beginning Thursday. Game 1 against the Gators will be on ESPNU and Game 2 will be on ESPN2.

On Tuesday against MTSU, the Dores scored 14 runs on 14 hits in a seven-inning, run-rule win. All nine starters reached base at least once led by Alan Espinal’s 3-for-3 day. RJ Austin and Braden Holcomb drove in three runs each and Davis Diaz drove in a pair and scored three times. Logan Poteet also tallied two RBI along with Jonathan Vastine.

The Commodores were held scoreless over the first two games at Texas A&M. Vandy pushed across four runs in the second inning of Game 3, highlighted by a two-run homer by Holcomb. Davis Diaz and Matthew Polk each hit solo home runs in the late innings but Vandy fell 12-6 to the Aggies.

Vanderbilt’s trip to Lipscomb on Tuesday will be the 83rd meeting since 1936. The Dores lead the series 59-23 and won last season’s meeting 11-1 in eight innings. Vandy’s last trip to Ken Dugan Field resulted in a 13-10 win on April 20, 2010.
