Syndication: The Knoxville News-Sentinel Saul Young/News Sentinel / USA TODAY NETWORK

Fresh off of a much needed series sweep of Vanderbilt, the Tennessee bats stayed hot against Bellarmine on Tuesday night. Tony Vitello’s Volunteers will look to carry that momentum into another weekend series, as they host Mississippi State beginning on Thursday night.

The Bulldogs are 24-17 on the year, sitting at just 6-12 in SEC play.

Tennessee was on the brink of being in real danger of missing the NCAA Tournament before last weekend, but they’re on much firmer ground now. Per College Sports Madness, the Volunteers are currently projected to land in 9th-seeded East Carolina’s region.

Vitello will stick with Andrew Lindsey tonight, while Mississippi State will turn to Cade Smith. First pitch is set for 7 p.m. ET.
