Good morning.

The Vanderbilt baseball team lost the opener of a three-game series at Florida, 8-4, on Friday night. Philip Clarke hit a solo homer in the seventh, and Stephen Scott connected on a three-run bomb in the eighth, but that wasn’t enough to overcome a five-run seventh inning by the Gators. The Commodores dropped to 17-9 overall and 5-2 in the SEC. They’ll play again today at 11:00 AM CT, with Patrick Raby on the hill. Today’s game will be broadcast on ESPNU.

Men’s tennis dropped to 15-5 and 5-2 in the SEC with a 4-3 loss to ninth-ranked Texas A&M on Friday.

Today, in addition to the baseball game, women’s tennis hosts Kentucky at noon CT (stream), and women’s lacrosse hosts Villanova at 12:30 PM CT (stream.)

Off the West End

UConn’s women’s basketball team lost to Notre Dame in the semifinals. Notre Dame will now play Mississippi State for the championship on Sunday.

David Price shut down the Rays on Friday night. Also, the Cubs and Marlins played 17 innings, and the Cubs lost.

Jon Gruden cut one of the best punters in the league for no particular reason. I really sort of wish he were Tennessee’s coach.
