NASHVILLE, Tennessee – Vanderbilt starter Jack Leiter blinded again, and the Commodores took advantage of Georgia Tech’s multiple misses and then hung on Saturday to win 4-3 at Hawkins Field.
Vanderbilt will now meet with Georgia Institute of Technology or Indiana (31-20) at 8:00 pm on Sunday. The Sycamores knocked out the Presbyterians (22-23) with a 9-2 win on Saturday and will have to beat the Yellow Vests at 2:00 pm Sunday to earn a rematch with the Commodores.
Wandy (42-15) can move to the Super Region with a victory on Sunday or Monday at 6:00 pm.
“We won. This is pure profit, ”said Vanderbilt head coach Tim Corbin. “We scored a lot of goals that got into the game with the guys at the base. We did what we needed to do defensively and serving wisely in order to put ourselves in the right position and achieve a positive result. That’s all that matters. “
Dorez is in this vantage point thanks in large part to Leiter, who recovered from an early solo home run and a shocking line hit that ripped the glove off his left hand in the third inning. The sophomore struck out 11 and allowed one earned run in six innings.
Leiter retired after 112 pitches and lost to Nick Maldonado, who threw a flawless seventh and a flawless eighth before running into trouble in the ninth. The kicker framed Drew Compton, who fired a double shot deep to the right.
Maldonado, however, struck out Jake DeLeo to end the night.
Tech got close with a long ball and started the night with a long ball.
Kevin Parada won the singles home run, leaving Leiter to lead fourth, giving Georgia a 1-0 lead.
“It had to happen the way it unfolds because I fell behind, tried to slow down on a really good striker in fastball, and it was 3-1, and that kind of corrected him a little,” Leiter said. “Guys appear in the practice with batting, so I was hoping for such a result.
“Made a very good serve, he hit hard and hit a long way. I think it was easy to bounce off him because it wasn’t necessarily a good serve or a good score. “
Wandie then caught a break in the home half when Dominic Keegan sent the harmless Terran to third, but the shot for first was wrong. One day later, Troy LaNeuve was hit by a pitch.
CJ Rodriguez played with a score of 2: 1 and tore a double from the top wall of the left field, tying the game. One step later, LaNeuve rushed home on a maddening pitch, giving Vanderbilt a 2-1 lead.
In the fifth leg, Parker Noland drove a long single into deep right field to start the frame. After the selection of fielder Enrique Bradfield got the ball in the leg.
This led to the appearance of Javier Waz, a junior starting in left field, in part due to injury to Tate Colivic. Vaz cut the earthen player with a short puck in what looked like a double, but the shot hit right field, allowing Jason Gonzalez and Bradfield to score 4-1.
This was a lot of support for Leiter (9-3), who was recovering from an early shock. Six of 11 strikeouts were due to third hits, and he also fought his way through two walks and his own throwing error.
Leiter improved to 11-3 as a commodore and lowered his career ERA to 2.15.
Georgia Institute of Technology starter Marquis Grissom had 4 1/3 innings and allowed four runs – all undeserved – on two hits. He struck out two and worked out about three walks.
Dalton Smith threw 3 1/3 innings of scoreless relief in which he allowed only one hit.
The Yellow Jackets (30-24) made three mistakes and left five runners at base.
