(VUAD) No. 10 Vanderbilt opened the season with a 5-2 victory over Long Beach State at Blair Field…
Baseball: Vanderbilt 6, Long Beach State 0
Carson Fulmer followed Miller into the game and turned in three scoreless innings of his own to complete the Dores' first shutout of the season. The right-hander fanned five and allowed two hits to earn the save.
All the offense the Commodores (2-0) needed came in the third inning when the team sent 10 men to the plate to score five runs. Ro Coleman started the rally with his first career hit, a single to right-center field. Dansby Swanson followed with a double down the left field line to score the first run. Nolan Rogers made it 2-0 with a crisp single to the outfield and started a string of four straight hits. Vince Conde and Bryan Reynolds each knocked in runs with RBI-singles before Johnny Norwood capped the rally with a double. Conde later added a run in the seventh on a ground out that scored Xavier Turner from third.
Reynolds, Norwood and Zander Wiel all had two hits to lead the Commodores. Norwood now has back-to-back, two-hit games to open the season. In his first career start, Reynolds went 2-for-4 with one RBI. Michael Hill had two of the Dirtbags' (0-2) three hits in the game. Starter Andre Rohrbach took the loss allowing five runs on seven hits in 2.2 innings.
Sophomore Tyler Ferguson gets the nod for the Commodores in the series finale tomorrow with first pitch set for 3 p.m. CT at Blair Field.
