HOOVER- Most baseball fans think of the 10-run mercy rule as something you only see in youth leagues. Saturday the rarely used rule took effect as Vanderbilt clobbered South Carolina, 11-1, and earned a valuable Friday off-day. Vanderbilt will play the winner of Friday's South Carolina-Georgia game on Saturday.
