"We felt we needed to add some more games and Belmont is a quality club that split a pair of games with us earlier this season," said Vanderbilt head coach Tim Corbin.
Right-hander Taylor Hill (1-1, 4.50 ERA) will get the start in the first game of the twinbill, while the starter for the nightcap is to be determined.

After the doubleheader Vanderbilt will be back on the road in SEC play against No. 12 Georgia (33-15, 14-10 SEC). The Bulldogs were swept at home by Florida last weekend and moved from first overall in the standings into sixth place.
