Vanderbilt Vandy actually climbed from No. 13 to No. 12 on the S-Curve despite the loss to Kentucky. If anything, the Commodores should feel empowered by that performance.
Vanderbilt: The Commodores couldn't beat Kentucky. That's OK. Vandy will be fine in the NCAAs. The Commodores can work on their seeding in the coming weeks.
PITCHER OF THE WEEK Sonny Gray • Vanderbilt Sophomore • RHP • Smyrna, Tenn. • Gray threw 8.0 innings (longest outing of any SEC pitcher on the weekend) of three-hit shutout baseball in the Commodores season opening win over Niagara Friday night. • He did not allow a runner to second base (only one in game) until the eighth inning and struck out eight batters to just one walk. Dating back to last season, the right-hander has not allowed a run in his last 17 and 2/3 innings with 21 strikeouts and just two walks while giving up 11 hits.
