Vanderbilt Head Coach Tim Corbin:
On Vanderbilt's five-run third inning:
"It was huge because they walked a couple of people. Having (Cody) Satterwhite out of the game shook them up just enough. When they came back out, we took advantage of that. We had a couple of hits together with those walks and Dominic (de la Osa) had a big hit to drive in two runs. We wanted to score as many runs as possible and keep applying pressure."
On who will pitch the night game for Vanderbilt:
"I don't know yet. I'll have to talk to (pitching coach) D.J. about that. We're trying to piece it together right now."
On the defense of third baseman Pedro Alvarez:
"He almost had an ESPN No. 1 play on that near triple play. It was great defensive output by him. He had a lot of run-saving plays."
Relief Pitcher Brett Jacobson:
On the strike out with the bases loaded in the fifth inning:
"I actually hung the pitch really bad. That's baseball for you. Sometimes you make a great pitch and the other team gets a hit and sometimes you make bad pitches that don't get hit. I was fortunate that he didn't hit that ball."
On his performance:
"I struggled with command a little bit. I was fortunate enough that every time they put the ball in play our defense was turning a double play. The defense picked me up a lot today in making those plays and getting all those outs."
Ole Miss Quotes:
Ole Miss Head Coach Mike Bianco:
On the team's pitching performances:
"Justin was tremendous today. We just didn't get off to a good start with Cody Satterwhite being sick. He thought he could go, but he just couldn't. Rory came in and he had a fight of his own. We opened the door, but you have to credit them because they got the hits. We had opportunities during the game, but we just couldn't get the hit."
Pitcher Justin Cryer:
On the field controversy:
"I was just excited about getting the out. I caught the ball and ran to first, and apparently I was starring the runner down. I was just pumped about ending that inning and get the out of first."
On pitching seven innings:
"I haven't done it since high school. I think I threw around six innings last season against South Carolina, but before that it was high school. It was a different approach for me, but I just came in and threw the best I could."
