Double-dip sweep equals series win for Vols

Tennessee bounced back from just its second loss of the season Friday with a productive Saturday. Read for the latest on Vols baseball.

Tennessee got its bats going early in the final game of its series versus Cincinnati and took the finale 6-2 on a cold Saturday in Knoxville.

After trailing for a total of 13 innings in the first two games in the series, the Volunteers (11-2) didn't waste much time forging ahead as Benito Santiago scored on a fielder's choice in the bottom of the second inning.

Justin Ammons' two-run home run and a Max Bartlett run-scoring single highlighted a three-run fourth frame to make the advantage 4-0.

Jay Charleston scored on a wild pitch in the fifth.

Jeff Moberg plated the final Tennessee run on a sacrifice fly from Charleston.

Zach Warren (2-1) used 87 pitches to go six innings, allowing two earned runs on four hits and two walks with six strikeouts. The Tennessee bullpen completely shut the door from there with Connor Darling, Will Neely and Jon Lipinski sitting down all nine Bearcats they faced.

Benito Santiago carried the biggest stick of the contest, singling four times for a third of the Vols' hits. Charleston and Andre Lipcius contributed two hits apiece.

Next up, Tennessee travels to play Middle Tennessee State in Murfreesboro. First pitch is Tuesday night at 7 Eastern.
