Vanderbilt baseball uses pitching, offense to win series at Georgia

Vanderbilt baseball faced the kind of series that it hasn’t been winning this year. But the Commodores went to Athens and took the series from Georgia, a near-lock to be in a NCAA regional.

In the opener on Friday, Vanderbilt (31-15, 12-12 SEC) won a back-and-forth, high-scoring contest for the first time this year, hanging on 11-9 in a game it never trailed. On Saturday, the Commodores jumped on Bulldogs ace Jonathan Cannon early and took a lead into the seventh inning, but the bullpen imploded in a 13-7 loss. But Vanderbilt rebounded in the rubber match on Sunday, winning 4-0 to pick up its nation-leading ninth shutout. In finding different ways to win the two victories of the series, the Commodores picked up by far their best series victory of 2022.
