SP: Sonny Gray 5-4, 2.33 ERA
The Commodores were swept last year by the Vols, losing two of the games in extra innings. VU struggled at the plate as well as on the mound with a .271 team batting average and a 7.14 ERA.
Brian Harris was 5-for-13 (.385), while Curt Casali was 3-for-8 (.375) with four walks in the series.
Sonny Gray will look to improve on his performance of a year ago when he gave up four runs on eight hits in four innings with four strikeouts in the no-decision.
In fact the Commodores used nine pitchers in the three games, and just one didn't allow a run: Caleb Cotham who pitched 1.2 innings.
Here's looking for a reversal of fortune in an hour.
