LOS ANGELES-- After a disappointing loss to the UCLA Bruins on Friday, the Vanderbilt Commodores rebounded nicely with a 13-hit, 10-run outting against USC. Designated hitter Bryan Johns had four hits in five at-bats and four RBIs to pace the Black and Gold.

Trailing, 1-0, to the Trojans in the top of the fifth inning, Vanderbilt's bats got going as the Commodores scored four runs in the fifth and three runs in the sixth and seventh innings to give Vanderbilt a seemingly insurmountable lead.

Vanderbilt got a solid pitching performance from Taylor Hill, who pitched six innings, striking out two and walking two. He scattered eight hits and allowed the lone run in the third inning after two controversial calls including a balk and a Trojan called safe on a steal attempt.

Vanderbilt also had strong pitching performances from Corey Williams (2 innings, no hits and 2 k's) and Will Clinard (1 inning, no hits and 1 k).
