For the second straight year, the Vanderbilt baseball team is headed back to Louisville for the NCAA Regionals. The Commodores (41-17) are the No. 2 seed in the regional, joining top-seeded Louisville (48-12), Illinois State (31-22) and St. Louis (33-27) in the regional.

Vanderbilt will face third-seeded Illinois State in the first game on Friday, June 4 (Time is TBA) while Louisville will face the fourth-seeded Billikens in the nightcap on Friday.

The Commodores have played both Louisville and Illinois State already once this year. VU defeated the Redbirds 9-2 in the Music City Classic on Mar. 6 and outlasted Louisville, 11-10 in a 17-inning marathon on May 11th.

Vanderbilt is making its ninth NCAA Tournament appearance in school history, posting an overall record of 15-15. In 2009, VU went 3-2 in the regional play at Jim Patterson Stadium before falling to top-seeded and host Louisville, 5-3 in the regional final.
