Vols fall 4-3 at Vanderbilt


NASHVILLE (WATE)- On a rainy night in Nashville, the Tennessee baseball team gave up a 3-1 lead and eventually fell to No. 3 Vanderbilt 4-3 in 12 innings on Friday.

Spencer Nevin gave the commodores the win with a walk-off single.

Tennesse built a 3-1 lead, but the Commodores climbed back in the game.

The game was scoreless until the top of the fourth, when the Vols scored on a two out single by Pierce Biley.

Vanderbilt tied the game 1-1 in the fifth.

Tennessee took a 3-1 lead  on a bases loaded wild pitch and a fielders choice in the sixth inning.

Vanderbilt tied the game with two runs in the bottom of the seventh.

The Commodores put the winning run in scoring position in the ninth, 10th and 11th innings only to see UT freshmen pitchers Drake Owenby and Trevor Charpie would out of jam after jam, including getting a 6-4-3 double play with the bases loaded and one out in the bottom of the 11th.

It was a pitching duel for the first seven innings as Tennessee senior Zack Godley and Vanderbilt southpaw Kevin Ziomek matched each other pitch-for-pitch.

Both allowed three runs with Godley yielding just five hits and striking out eight and Ziomek punching out 10 while allowing six hits.
