Team Notes • Vanderbilt won its first Super Regional series and advances to its first College World Series. • This is Vanderbilt’s 10th all-time appearance in the NCAA Tournament. • This is Vanderbilt’s third appearance in the NCAA Super Regional. • Vanderbilt has scored in the first inning in three of its five postseason games this season … The Commodores have scored first in all five of its postseason games. • Oregon State’s run in the first inning was the first time Vanderbilt had surrendered a run in the first since May 8 at Kentucky when the Commodores also scored two in the top of the first before UK answered with one.
Individual Notes • Aaron Westlake’s three home run game was the first of his career and first for a Commodore since Jeff Martin in 1991 … Westlake now has a team-leading 17 home runs … Each of Westlake’s home runs came with a runner on base and came in the first, sixth and eighth inning. • Westlake’s six RBI were a career high and the most by a Commodore this season. • Anthony Gomez had hits in his first four at bats … It was Gomez’s fifth four-hit game of the season … Gomez had a two-run single in the top of the sixth that gave Vanderbilt a 5-2 lead. • Conrad Gregor hit his ninth double of the year and his second in as many games. • Will Clinard picked up his second win of the year in relief of Grayson Garvin.
