Notes On The Commodores For The Week:
Vanderbilt opened the week with two wins, before falling in two one-run contests to end the Music City Classic ... all three games over the weekend were one-run games ... the Dores have used five different starting lineups in the first seven games in an effort to find the best offensive group ... the Commodore pitching staff was stout over the weekend allowing only five earned runs over the 27 innings and now have  a team ERA of 3.22 ... All three teams Vanderbilt faced over the weekend finished with 30 or more wins a year ago ... Freshman Nick Christiani picked up his first career win in VU's 9-5 win over Tennessee Tech last Tuesday ... Reliever Ty Davis pitched 3.1 of scoreless relief to earn the win over Pittsburgh on Friday ... Preseason All-American David Price gave up one-run on four hits in six innings of work with nine strikeouts in the no-decision against the Panthers ... He also pitched the ninth inning of the Commodores win over Tennessee Tech on Tuesday and struck out the side on just 10 pitches ... Price now has 19 strikeouts in 11.2 innings this year ... Senior righthander Matt Buschmann pitched the team's first complete game of the year against Kansas on Sunday ... It was the second complete game of his career and first since the 2004 season ... Vanderbilt has been without the services of starting second baseman Alex Feinberg the last six games due to injury ... Feinberg was one of two returning starters who hit over .300 a year ago ... Sophomore Brad French made his first collegiate start at third base against Kansas on Sunday.
