Spencer Jones put up the biggest numbers, contributing 7 RBIs with his 4 hits, which included two doubles and a 3 run home run. Enrique Bradfield Jr.,Parker Noland and Tate Kolwyck each had three hits, while Alan Espinal had 2. Kolwyck, Dominic Keegan and Jack Bulger also added home runs, with Vandy having four today.
Vanderbilt also got a great performance from their starting pitcher, Chris McElvain. McElvain struck out 11 batters over 7.0 innings pitched, while allowing 6 hits and 1 run. New Mexico State’s only run came in the bottom of the third, when a Kevin Jimenez single scored Cal Villareal.
Oregon State and San Diego will get started at 7:00 PM, weather permitting.
