NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The road to Omaha became considerably shorter for the Vanderbilt baseball team on Friday afternoon.
The Commodores, in fact, are now halfway there.
Using an early outburst by the offense and some solid middle relief work by Tyler Ferguson, the Commodores rolled to an 11-6 victory over Stanford in the opening game of the Super Regionals at Hawkins Field. The best-of-three series continues on Saturday at 2 p.m., with the “if-necessary” game scheduled for Sunday at 2 p.m. The winner of the series advances to Omaha, Neb., for the College World Series.
