  • Eastern Kentucky University freshman third baseman Bryan Soloman continued the Tuesday’s string of strong freshman performances with a five-hit game to lead the Colonels to a 12-8 win over Western Carolina. Soloman was 5-6 with one home run, one double, three RBI, four runs scored and one stolen base in the game. EKU junior shortstop Richie Rodriguez was 3-5 with three runs scored in the game. Junior left-handed pitcher Greg Terry was credited with the win after he recorded the final out in the sixth inning. Sophomore right-handed pitcher Alex Rexroat recorded the final four outs of the game for his first save. (Box Score)
  • Vanderbilt tied the game on a bases-loaded walk in the ninth inning before scoring the winning run on a wild pitch in a 6-5 walk-off win over Western Kentucky University. Following the bases-loaded walk from WKU redshirt junior closer Rye Davis that scored the tying run, senior catcher Matt Rice was ejected from the game for arguing the call. Sophomore infielder and catcher J. P. Jackson replaced Rice behind the plate but could not corral Davis’ wild pitch, which allowed the winning run to score. WKU junior outfielder Kes Carter was 2-4 with one run scored, and junior second baseman Ivan Hartle was 2-4 with one RBI in the game. Davis was credited with the loss and his second blown save of the season after surrendering two runs in one inning of work. (Box Score)
