Minor receives national honor

By Travis Young - Vanderbilt left-hander Mike Minor has been named to this week's National All-Star Lineup by the College Baseball Foundation and Diamond Sports. Minor was one of 20 players from across the country named to the week eight team. The Commodore was one of three SEC players that was named to the list, joining, Florida's Preston Tucker and Alabama's Brandon May.

Earlier in the week, the southpaw earned SEC Pitcher of the Week honors after holding No. 1 Arkansas to just four hits (all singles) in eight innings of work with 11 strikeouts in the Commodores 9-0 win over the Razorbacks last Friday at Baum Stadium.

The preseason All-American candidate will take the mound for the Commodores Friday night as the 'Dores open a three-game homestand with Alabama at Hawkins Field. Friday night's game will start at 6:00 p.m. CT.
