Snap Analysis and Predictions:

Vanderbilt has the clear advantage in all aspects in this one. You know this. We’re the national seed; they beat the Campbell Humpin’ Camels to win their conference and get a bid. Still, feel free to read on.

Offense: Aside from the Hall of Name worthy #4 5th Year Sr. LF Zacchaeus Rasberry (.314/.368/.577) and #5 Jr. OF Kyle “Dan” Decker (.316/.403/.385), we don’t love them hose on offense.

As a team, them Hose are batting a paltry .262/.350/.410. For context, their opponents have hit .294/.381/.442 against them. For yet more context, the Dores have slashed in .301/.390/.509 2021.

Advantage: Vanderbilt.

Pitching: Come on now.

Advantage: Vanderbilt.

Anchor of Gold Twitter Poll Prediction:

Prediction: We’re winning this one. You should all be furious if it’s even remotely close.

Carter Young’s back! They’re easing him back into the lineup, and also, he will probably not be switch hitting today.
