Baseball Series Prep: Tennessee

by Barca Blog

No. 15 Vanderbilt (31-9, 8-7 SEC) hits the road for a series with in-state rival Tennessee (19-19, 4-11) this weekend at Lindsey Nelson Stadium in Knoxville.

If history is any indication, expect one team to walk away with the sweep. Four of the last five meetings have ended that way with the underdog Vols taking all three games at Hawkins Field last year.

Of course, Corbin's had UT's number during his tenure at Vandy with a 15-8 record. Also, the Vols continue to struggle under third-year coach Todd Raleigh and rank second to last in the conference standings. But those numbers don't mean much if you remember last year's disappointment.

Let's look at the probable weekend rotation:

Friday at 6 p.m. CT
RHP Sonny Gray (5-4, 2.34) vs. LHP Bryan Morgado (2-4, 5.88)

Saturday at 6 p.m. CT
RHP Jack Armstrong (5-1, 4.21) vs. RHP Stephen McCray (4-3, 2.59)

Sunday at 1 p.m. CT
RHP Taylor Hill (3-3, 3.30) vs. TBA

Friday's and Saturday's contest will be televised on CSS and will webcast Sunday's finale. You can also listen to Joe Fisher's radio call of each game on 560 AM and For twitter updates, follow @VandyBaseball.
