Baseball Starting lineup vs. MTSU

By Travis Young

Live from Reese Smith Jr. Field
Weather: partly cloudy skies, 72 degrees. Wind is slightly blowing in from centerfield, but shouldn't be much of a factor as the stadium is a hitter friendly park.

Here is Vanderbilt's Starting Lineup

Anthony Gomez 2B
Brian Harris SS
Jason Esposito 3B
Curt Casali DH
Aaron Westlake 1B
Andrew Giobbi LF
Connor Harrell CF
Joe Loftus RF
Drew Fann C
Chase Reid SP

Reid (4-1, 1.99 ERA) gets the call tonight for the Commodores. Tonight's appearance marks the 15th appearance and sixth start of the season for Reid. The Southlake, Texas native has had phenomenal season thus far, allowing only nine earned runs in 40.2 innings of work. Reid's 42 strikeouts is tied for second on the team with Taylor Hill. Reid leads the pitching staff in strikeout-to-walk ratio, nearly a 6:1 ratio (41 SO, 7 BB).

MTSU will counter with righthander Hunter Adkins. Adkins comes into the game (1-1, 6.83 ERA). Adkins will make his 11th appearance and fifth start of the season tonight. He has 24 strikeouts and 18 walks in 29.0 innings of work this year.
