Another nice night in Hoover, temps in the high 70's, with very little wind.
The Commodores will use the same lineup, with one small order shift. Andrew Giobbi moves up to fifth, while Curt Casali drops a spot to sixth.
1. Brian Harris SS
2. Anthony Gomez 2B
3. Jason Esposito 3B
4. Aaron Westlake 1B
5. Andrew Giobbi C
6. Curt Casali DH
7. Joe Loftus RF
8. Connor Harrell CF
9. Mike Yastrzemski LF
SP: Taylor Hill (5-4, 3.68 ERA)
Hill had a masterful performance against the Tigers on May 8 in Baton Rouge, carrying a shutout into the bottom of the ninth, before giving up a two-run single with two outs in a 6-2 Vanderbilt win. He tossed his first career complete game, allowing the two runs on seven hits with eight strikeouts and a walk.
What was most impressive was that he stymied a LSU squad that pounded out 19 hits and scored 16 runs the previous night in a wild 16-15 win in 10 innings.
Another strong outing by Hill and the Commodores will have tomorrow off while waiting to face the winner of tomorrow's Auburn-Ole Miss elimination game. If VU were to lose tonight, they would face Florida tomorrow night in an elimination game.
First pitch is scheduled for 8 p.m. CT at Regions Park.
