On the day 14 Commodores received at least one at-bat with 11 posting at least one hit and six picking up two hits or more. Gomez led all players with four hits with Casali driving in a game-high four runs. Tony Kemp set a career-best with four runs scored and Sam Lind hit his first home run as a Commodore with a two-run shot in the second inning. Ethan Bennett paced the Vols with two of the team's seven hits.
Vanderbilt outscored the Volunteers 39-5 over the three-game series and Sunday's margin of victory was the largest in the series since 1899 when VU won 20-0. The three-game sweep of UT was the first for Vandy since 2008. The Commodores have now scored 10-plus runs in six straight games and eight of the last nine SEC home games.
Senior Taylor Hill was the beneficiary of the offensive outburst earning his fourth win of the season. Hill tossed six scoreless innings fanning six and scattering four hits. Nick Blount was pinned with the loss giving up eight runs on 10 hits over three innings.
