It was less than 24 hours ago when Western Kentucky University rolled into the Vanderbilt campus and…
OUCH! Western Kentucky 17, Vanderbilt 2
The Vanderbilt bats were not much better than the pitching. WKU's starting pitcher, Brian Edelen threw 6 scoreless innings, giving up only 3 hits, with 3 strikeouts, and 3 walks to get the win (2-0). Vanderbilt finally scored their first run in the eighth and added one more in the ninth but this game was already out of reach. Brian Johns committed 3 costly errors at second base. WKU had 16 hits with 2 grand slam homeruns( Kes Carter and Matt Rice) in the game. In comparison, Vanderbilt had 9 hits stranding 11 runners.
This was the worst loss in the Tim Corbin era. Vanderbilt's last loss this big came in 2001 against LSU. Of course that game was in Baton Rouge, La. If Vanderbilt is going to be a force in the SEC and maintain their 18th ranking, they will need to right the ship tomorrow, as the Commodores get one more shot at the Hilltoppers. Tonight the diamond Dores looked like a piece of coal.
