#18 Vanderbilt 10 Wofford 7

NASHVILLE— Vanderbilt used a four-run first and a five-run fourth to get past Wofford 10-7 Wednesday night at Hawkins Field.

The Commodores won their eighth straight game (7-0 on home stand) to move to 23-4 overall, while the Terriers fell to 8-17.

“I thought we had 10 at bats where mentally we weren’t as locked in as we needed to be and didn’t expand the lead like I thought we were capable of doing,” said Vanderbilt head coach Tim Corbin. “You have to give them some credit as well. Their pitchers did a good job of limiting our at-bats and they were tough to put away at the plate tonight, especially with two outs.”
