According to a Sporting News report on June 22, the Commodores punched their ticket in dramatic fashion after they edged Texas 4-3 in 10 innings to advance to its first College World Series Final. Rhett Wiseman was the hero for Vandy as he went 2-for-4 and scored the gaming winning run for the Commodores.
Vanderbilt will have their hands full against a tough Virginia team that has not lost a game since arriving in Omaha. UVA defeated Ole Miss 2-1, TCU 3-2, then they knocked off Mississippi a second time by the final score of 4-1 punching their ticket to the finals. While both of these teams will be playing for their first NCAA title, they are also trying to appreciate the moment.
Vanderbilt coach Tim Corbin is hoping his players will not only enjoy the ride, but continue to show the team's character as well.
"That's what these moments are about, when kids have been practicing all year and not getting in games. Then their number is called," Vanderbilt coach Tim Corbin said. "Everybody is so happy for this kid. They wanted him to play, and just to see him succeed, the team is beyond happy."
Las Vegas odds makers have listed Virginia as the favorite in tonight's game and in the series. UVA is - 190 in tonight's Game 1 and they are listed at -275 to win the series. The come back on Vanderbilt is +200. Collge baseball fans will be able to catch every pitch of the action nationally on ESPN and streaming live online through ESPN3 and Watch ESPN. The first pitch is slated for 8 p.m. ET.
Prediction: Both of these teams are playing well, but the slight edge goes to UVA.
