Photo Story: Ziomek leads Vandy past Oregon
Commodore outfielders huddle after completing warmups before the game.
Kevin Ziomek winds up to throw. Ziomek got off to a somewhat rough early start, giving up a hit and walking a batter in the first. However, the veteran hurler struck out the final Duck batter of the inning to get things going. He would go on to have a fine day.
Tony Kemp's image flashed on the Oregon Jumbotron in the second inning. Kemp sparked a 3-run second inning for the Commodores when he blasted a triple that scored three runs.
