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.
Tony Kemp is congratulated by teammate D.J. Luna after scoring a run off Jack Lupos hit.
Conrad Gregor eyes the pitcher midway through the game. Gregor finished with a hit and a walk.
Freshman pinch hitter Rhett Wiseman gets ready to take a swing at the ball. Wiseman, who had a hit and scored a run during the big Commodore second inning, is one of several freshman that see significant playing time.
Spencer Navin runs to first after getting a hit in the seventh inning.

Third baseman Xavier Turner is another key Commodore freshman. He reached on a fielder's choice in the second inning and scored one of the two runs off Kemp's triple. (Rhett Wiseman scored the other).
Commodores celebrate after adding a ninth inning insurance run to give the 'Dores a 4-1 lead.
Kevin Ziomek pitches throws another pitch. Ziomek finished with a stellar 13 strike outs, walked one and gave up just one earned run (a solo homerun).
The two teams will be back in action on Saturday at 4 pm CT.
