This Week in Baseball

Tennessee Baseball on $2 Tuesday

The Tennessee Volunteer Baseball team has now moved to 17-2 on the year and 2-1 in conference play after winning its opening SEC series of the season at Missouri. The Vols look to win their first back-to-back SEC series since 2010 when they managed to string together three in a row against Vanderbilt, Kentucky, and Georgia. The Vols have not opened the season with back-to-back SEC series wins since the 2001 season, when they defeated Florida and South Carolina.

Tennessee in the Polls: Collegiate Baseball #14 (Last week 17), Perfect Game #16 (19), USA Today Coaches' Poll #16 (17), Baseball America #18 (22), National Collegiate Baseball Writers #21 (26)

Last Week: 3-1

  • Tuesday March 11, 2014 @ MTSU: Vols 2 - MTSU 0. The Vols had lost 5 in a row previously to MTSU, but managed to score 2 in the 3rd inning and hold on for the win. The Vols gave up 5 hits and struck out 9.
  • Friday March 14, 2014 @ Missouri: Missouri 5, Vols 2. Tennessee had a 2 run lead in the 7th, but Missouri's bats came alive and picked up 3 in the 7th and 2 in the 8th. Tennessee had the tying run at bat in the 9th, but couldn't do anything with it.
  • Saturday March 15, 2013 @ Missouri: Vols 4 - Missouri 1; Vols 5 - Missouri 1. Due to inclement weather, the Sunday game was moved forward to Saturday and the Vols and Tigers played a doubleheader. Missouri managed to plate their only run in the first for the early lead, but Tennessee responded in the 2nd to tie it up, and had a great 3 run 8th inning to seal the victory. In the 2nd game Tennessee got off to a fast start, scoring 1 in the 1st and 2 in the 4th to take the game pretty handily.
