Vandy Gets In Good PositionFeatured
HOOVER, Ala. — Vanderbilt has a history of playing well in the Southeastern Conference tournament, and might just be in the driver’s seat in its side of the bracket after a thrilling 6-5 win over Texas A&M.
As with several other teams here in Hoover, the Commodores have a lot to play for. As it stands, Vandy is trying to solidify its status as a regional host site on Selection Monday, while also thinking hard about the possibility of a national seed should they roll through the tournament and get some serious help from other teams around the country.
A national seed might seem pretty far-fetched at the moment, but we’ve seen crazier things over the years in the days leading up to the big decision day. And for the Commodores, things suddenly set up very well after throwing Patrick Raby and John Kilichowski the first two days with the two-headed monster in Jordan Sheffield and rising Kyle Wright waiting in the wings.
“That was just a great college baseball game, and we ended up on the right side of it,” Vanderbilt coach Tim Corbin said. “Toward the end, losing the lead, and then finding a way to jump back in it was a great effort put forth by our kids. I’m just proud and happy for our kids.”
