Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Vanderbilt baseball heads to Fayetteville, Arkansas, for the opener of a three-game series with the Razorbacks tonight. After taking two of three from Georgia last weekend, the Commodores are back to .500 in the SEC with two series remaining — this weekend’s trip to Fayetteville followed by next week’s home finale against LSU. Those are two teams that are both regional hosts in D1Baseball’s latest bracket projection; Vanderbilt is projected as the 2-seed in the Louisville Regional.

Anyway, I don’t know what the odds that Vanderbilt hosts are — you’d have to ask Andrew about that — but I’d imagine a strong finish would put Vanderbilt in a good position. First pitch tonight is at 6:30 PM CT and the game will be streamed on SEC Network+. Andrew will have your series preview later today.
