Oregon's Steven Packer runs for first. The Ducks took a 2-1 lead in the third inning after Brett Thomas' single scored Ryon Healy.
Spencer Navin on second base. Navin led off the fifth with a double which sparked a 2-run inning for the Commodores. Unfortunately Navin was later injured and had to leave the game.
John Norwood's double in the fifth inning scored Spencer Navin and gave VU a 3-2 lead.
Vandy celebrates during the 2-run fifth inning.
Philip Pfeifer pitches. Pfeifer was solid throughout the day allowing 3 earned runs in 7 1/3 innings of work. However, he was somewhat victimized stat wise by Oregon's success bunting in the first inning.
Mike Yastrzemski up for bat in the sixth inning under the watchful eye of head coach Tim Corbin.
Mike Yastrzemski rounds the bases and is greeted by Corbin after blasting a home run out of the stadium. Vandy led 4-2 after six and seemed in control.
Vandy added a run in the top of the eighth via a Yaz double and led 5-2 but things got hairy in the Oregon eighth when the Ducks loaded bases. A combination of several walks, a wild pitch and a VU throwing error allowed Oregon to tie the game and then take the lead 7-5.
Oregon celebrates during their big eighth inning. Oregon had only one single during the inning but scored five runs thanks to Vanderbilt gifts. Vandy managed a hit from Joel McKeithan in its ninth but could not advance him.
