Vandy baseball kicked off their SEC Tournament on the right foot, getting to Georgia ace Alex Wood with patient hitting in a 4-1 victory Tuesday night. The win earned this team their 30th win of the season and set up a showdown with #7 South Carolina tomorrow night.
Drew VerHagen rewarded coach Tim Corbin's faith in him with a solid start, twirling 5.1 strong innings and allowing just one run and no walks on the night. Freshman Brian Miller finished the game by giving up just one hit to record his fifth save of the
inning season (five saves in an inning would be a record).
Anthony Gomez, Spencer Navin, and Tony Kemp starred at the plate for the 'Dores. The trio combined for all six of the team's hits.
Vandy's chance to earn a bye day evaporated earlier in the day as Florida avoided an upset at the hands of Auburn. Had the Tigers won, the 'Dores would have had Wednesday off thanks to the new SEC Tournament setup. Instead, they'll face Carolina with a showdown against the Gators looming if they can push their winning streak to seven games.
