Oregon right fielder Connor Hofmann makes a throw. Vandy's lead grew to 3-0 going into the Oregon seventh.
Vandy head coach Tim Corbin watches the action from the third base line. Corbin has built Vanderbilt into a baseball powerhouse but the Commodores had their hands full on Saturday.
Pitcher Brian Miller came in the seventh inning with the bases loaded and two outs and VU clinging to a 3-1 lead. Miller got the job done and stuck out the final batter with no runs allowed.
After Vandy added a run in the top of the eighth via a Kemp double, the Ducks took advantage of Commodore errors in the bottom of the inning to add a run. That would close out the game's scoring, however. Vandy would still prevail 4-2. The Commodores go for a sweep tomorrow at 2 pm. CT.
