NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Philip Pfeifer tossed five shutout innings and Xavier Turner drove in three runs, leading Vanderbilt to a 7-1 victory over Georgia Tech and a berth into the NCAA Super Regionals Monday night at Hawkins Field.
Vanderbilt (54-10), the No. 2 national seed in this year’s NCAA Tournament, advances to take on Louisville next weekend at home. Game dates and times will be announced later Monday night at the conclusion of all of the weekend regional action.
Pfeifer (4-0) allowed just four hits, walked two and struck out four, working out of jams with a pair of double plays and getting a nice running catch from centerfielder Connor Harrell to end another Yellow Jacket threat.
