Game 20: Vanderbilt Commodores at Texas A&M Aggies — Open Thread

The rubber match of the SEC-opening series.

NCAA BASEBALL: Mississippi State at Vanderbilt George Walker IV-USA TODAY Sports

Vanderbilt Commodores (15-4, 1-1) at Texas A&M Aggies (16-5, 1-1)

When: 1:00 PM CT, Sunday, March 17, 2019

Where: Blue Bell Park, College Station, Texas

TV: SEC Network+/WatchESPN

Radio: Vanderbilt IMG Sports Network

Well, Vanderbilt should be going for a sweep today. Instead, the Commodores blew a five-run eighth-inning lead on Saturday and now will come back today looking to salvage a series win in the first series of SEC play at Blue Bell Park in College Station, Texas.

Vanderbilt appears likely to send freshman Kumar Rocker to the mound today. We don’t know who Texas A&M is sending. I am sure Andrew will update this when lineups and starters are announced.

I’ll do that right now, Tom. First, it is looking like Rocker on the mound. They tweeted it out this morning.

On The Mound

Today’s Lineup

Very similar lineup to yesterday, but it appears Corbs has heeded our call and returned Stephen Scott to the cold corner in place of Chinfante. Raby is the stand-in at DH, so they could go many ways depending on the handedness of the pitcher by the time they reach the 8th spot in the lineup. I’ll give it a shot: if it’s a RHP, I have a feeling they’ll go with Walker Grisanti at DH.

*Update: aTm just released the lineup and pitcher.

It’s a righty. Sophomore RHP Christian Roa (1-1, 3.55 ERA). I’ll stick with my prediction of Gris, with Duvall as the fall-back option.

See you in the comments.
