Starting lineup vs. South Carolina

by SID - If it isn't broke, don't fix it. That seems to be the approach by Vanderbilt head coach Tim Corbin who is using the exact same lineup he used in yesterday's 4-1 win over No. 1 seed LSU. It is unusually cool in Hoover, with temps in the high 60's with wind blowing from the east-northeast at 8 mph.

1- Brian Harris - SS
2- Jonathan White - CF
3- Steven Liddle - RF
4- Curt Casali - 1B
5- Aaron Westlake - DH
6- Andrew Giobbi - C
7- Riley Reynolds - 2B
8- Jason Esposito - 3B
9- Alex McClure - LF
SP - Sonny Gray (4-1, 5.14 ERA)

Gray will be making his third start of the season. He was outstanding in his first start against Georgia two weeks ago in Athens. He limited the Bulldogs to just one run on three hits in six innings of work. He did not fare as well in his last start against Tennessee a week ago today. He gave up four runs on eight hits in four innings of work in the no decision. With South Carolina throwing its hard throwing ace in Sam Dyson, this has the potential to be a nice pitching matchup.
