Baseball starting lineup vs. Illinois State

By Travis Young

Weather Report: partly cloudy, 87 degrees. Winds blowing out to right field at 9 mph. The playing surface at Jim Patterson Stadium is all fieldturf so the playing surface is right around 97 degrees.

Here is Vanderbilt's starting lineup vs. the Redbirds

1. Brian Harris SS
2. Anthony Gomez 2B
3. Aaron Westlake 1B
4. Jason Esposito 3B
5. Joe Loftus RF
6. Andrew Giobbi C
7. Curt Casali DH
8. Bryan Johns LF
9. Connor Harrell CF
Taylor Hill SP

Taylor Hill (5-5, 3.96 ERA) gets the nod for Vanderbilt today on the mound after long discussions who would start. SID broke the news last night on Hill faced the Redbirds on March 6 at Hawkins Field and limited the Redbirds to two runs on seven hits in seven and a third innings of work. He struck out six and did not walk a batter. The Tennessee native faced the minimum through four innings and did not allow a run until the seventh.

Illinois State will start their ace junior right-hander Corey Maines (6-3, 4.45) against the Commodores.
