Baseball Bytes: Vanderbilt takes CWS & Everything Local Coming Up Today


Vanderbilt is 2019 College World Series champion after defeating Michigan 8-2 in Game 3 of the final series.

Pat DeMarco homered in the second and then walked with the bases loaded in a three-run third inning. Stephen Scott’s two-out single after DeMarco’s walk broke the game open early at 4-1.

After losing 7-4 to Michigan in Game 1 on Monday, Vanderbilt defeated Michigan 4-1 on Tuesday to even the final series at a game apiece. Kumar Rocker struck out 11 and allowed just three hits in 6.1 innings to earn his second win of this College World Series.
