Vandy hosts Stanford for berth into College World Series
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Vanderbilt approached the NCAA tournament like it was a new season after a rare early exit from the Southeastern Conference tournament. Now the Commodores need just two more wins for only Vanderbilt's second trip to the College World Series and first since 2011.
And the Commodores swept Stanford, the team standing in their way, early this season.
Pitcher Tyler Beede says it's hard to look to Omaha when the season starts but that's why they play is to get to this time of the season. He says now they're two wins away it's time to take care of business.
The Commodores had played for the SEC title seven of the past 10 years. Well rested, they needed only three wins to reach their fourth Super Regional in five years.
