VANDERBILT

Last Week: 3-1. Overall: 21-1
(4-1 vs. Top 25). Weekend Series: 4-0.

After
weeks of feasting against the soft underbelly of their schedule, the
Commodores won a hard-fought series in their SEC opener. Jr. LHP
David Price’s third straight complete game on Friday was his most
impressive yet (10 IP, 2 ER, 4 H, 14 K, 2 BB), and the Vandy offense
made him a five-game winner by scoring runs in the ninth and 10th
innings. The ‘Dores mustered just one hit in their first loss of the
season Saturday, and the Rebels scored five runs over the first two
innings against So. RHP Nick Christiani. Closer Casey Weathers blew a
5-4 lead Sunday, allowing two runs in the top of the ninth, but Vandy
answered with two runs in the bottom of the inning, capped by Jr. CF
David Macias’ walk-off RBI single.

Jr.
RHP Harris Honeycutt (7 IP, 0 R, 3 H, 9 K, 2 BB) returned to action
Friday and bested LSU ace Charlie Furbush (6.1 IP, 3 ER, 10 K) in a
nice pitching matchup. The Gamecocks got a three-run, pinch-hit homer
from Jon Willard in the seventh inning Saturday, then got a two-run,
pinch-hit homer from Robbie Grinestaff in the ninth, but the heroics
weren’t enough to complete the South Carolina comeback bid. Jr. C
Trent Kline went 4-for-5 with a homer, a double and four RBIs on
Sunday, as the Gamecocks scored five runs in the seventh in support
of Fr. RHP Blake Cooper (5.2 IP, 0 R, 3 H). Jr. LHP Arik Hempy’s

Vanderbilt and Kentucky fell from the
ranks of the unbeaten this weekend, leaving the Seminoles as the
nation’s only remaining undefeated team. For the record, the Division
I win-streak record is 34 games; Savannah State won 45 straight to
set the NCAA overall record in 2000. Despite a couple of close games
this weekend, FSU has outscored opponents by eight runs per game, the
best margin in the country. Wake scored two runs in the ninth to
force extra innings Friday, but Jr. OF Jack Rye singled home the
winning run in the 11th. Sr. RHP Michael Hyde (5.2 IP 0 R, 4 H, 5 K,
1 BB) shut down the Deacons for most of the game Saturday, and FSU
held off a late rally. Rye had two hits Sunday to extend his
career-best hitting streak to 20 games, and Florida State scored 11
runs on 14 hits in support of Jr. RHP Ryan Strauss (7 IP, 1 ER, 5

Jr. RHP Mike Stutes (8 IP, 1 ER, 3 H, 11 K, 1 BB) improved to 5-0.
OSU scored seven runs in the first inning Saturday, which was more
than enough support for Jr. LHP Joe Paterson (6 IP, 2 ER). Jr. 3B
Drew George doubled home the tying run with two outs in the ninth
inning Sunday, then scored the winning run on Jr. 1B Jordan
Lennerton’s RBI single. Jr. RHP Daniel Turpen struck out a

After
dropping its ACC-opening series at Wake Forest last week, Virginia
bounced back by taking a series on the road against the nation’s No.
1 team. After rain pushed Friday’s game back to Sunday, So. RHP Jacob
Thompson (7 IP, 1 R) pitched well in a no-decision Saturday, and the
Cavaliers scored five runs in the 11th, highlighted by Sr. OF Tim
Henry’s two-run double. Jr. LHP/1B Sean Doolittle lasted just four
innings in the first game Sunday but paced the Virginia offense with
four hits and three RBIs. Fr. RHP Matt Packer (4 IP, 7 R, 4 ER)
suffered his first collegiate loss in Sunday’s second game, despite

winner out of Jr. RHP P.J. Zocchi (7 IP, 0 R, 3 H, 8 K, 3 BB) in his
return to the Friday starter role. The Tigers jumped out to a 4-0
lead in the first inning Saturday, which was more than enough for So.
LHP Ryan Hinson (6.1 IP, 2 ER) and So. RHP D.J. Mitchell (2.2 IP, 0
R, 2 H, 4 K). Duke put up four runs in the first against Jr. RHP Alan
Farina on Sunday, but Clemson answered with four of its own in the

The
Tar Heels were haunted by ghosts of College World Series past, as
poor fundamentals and a lack of timely hitting conspired to give UNC
its first series loss of the year. After Friday’s game was postponed
until Sunday’s double-header, UNC misplayed three fly balls Saturday,
including two in Virginia’s five-run 11th inning. The Tar Heels left
25 runners on base in the two losses, including 13 in the first game
Sunday. Fr. RHP Alex White had a 100-degree temperature before that
game but battled into the sixth inning, but he didn’t get much help
from four UNC relievers in Virginia’s four-run sixth inning. Fr. 1B
Dustin Ackley started the series 8-for-8 with eight consecutive
singles and added two more hits in the nightcap, when Jr. OF Reid
Fronk drove in four runs to help the Tar Heels salvage a
win.

Rice
came from behind in all three games to sweep Cal Poly. Fr. RHP Ryan
Berry (6 IP, 1 R) pitched well in his first Friday start, but the
Mustangs scored seven runs against the Rice bullpen, forcing the Owls
to come from behind with three runs in the bottom of the ninth,
capped by So. 2B Aaron Luna’s walk-off RBI double. Jr. RHP Matt
Langwell (7 IP, 2 ER, 4 H) joined the weekend rotation as the
Saturday starter, and Jr. SS Brian Friday went 4-for-4 to support him
and help give coach Wayne Graham his 700th career win at Rice. Jr.

Razorbacks opened SEC play by snapping Kentucky’s 29-game home
winning streak. So. 3B Logan Forsythe’s three-run homer in the first
inning got Arkansas off and running Friday, and Jr. LHP Nick Schmidt
(5 IP, 2 R) and Fr. LHP Dallas Keuchel (4 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 5 K, 1 BB)
combined to hold Kentucky to just five hits. Jr. RHP Jess Todd (3 IP,

defense didn’t do him any favors, committing five errors. Sr. 1B
Danny Hamblin smacked two home runs Sunday in support of Jr. RHP Duke

coach ever to reach the 1,600-win mark on Friday, when three Texas
relievers threw 2.1 hitless innings in relief of Jr. LHP James

Saturday, and the offense scored six runs over the first three
innings and benefited from five Arkansas errors. Jr. RHP Greg
Dombrowski (4 IP, 5 ER) wasn’t great Sunday but kept Kentucky in the
game before Arkansas piled on against UK’s bullpen. Fr. OF Jason
Kipnis went 3-for-4 Sunday after homering in Saturday’s
win.

Last Week: 1-4. Overall: 18-6. Weekend Series: 4-1.

The harsh reality of
SEC play hit the young Tigers like a ton of bricks in their
conference opener in Athens, Ga. Fr. RHP Scott Shuman walked four
batters in the ninth inning Friday–two of them intentionally–and
the final free pass gave Georgia the winning run. The Bulldogs scored
the winning run in the ninth inning again Saturday, thanks to a
dropped foul ball, a hit batsman, a walk and an RBI single. Auburn
scored twice in the first inning Sunday but not again, leaving 10
runners on base.
