Vandy’s Brian Miller With Night to Remember

Vanderbilt pitcher Brian Miller wins the 2014 College World Series and then proposes to his girlfriend, Megan Bonds.

“I’ll tell you, it’s actually a sweet little story,” Miller said. “The first game of the year at Long Beach I was with Tyler Beede in the outfield, and he said, ‘You won’t propose to your girlfriend if you win the national championship.’ I shook his hand and said, ‘I will do it.’ And here we are.”

Vandy Anchors Down: ALL THE WAY!! National Champions!!

The Vanderbilt Commodores are sitting on top of the college baseball world tonight, as they are bringing back a College World Series trophy to display on the West End campus in Nashville.

John Norwood’s home run in the top of the eighth inning gave Vanderbilt the lead, and the Commodores beat Virginia 3-2 on Wednesday night for their first College World Series championship.

Norwood turned on Nick Howard’s 97 mph fastball and sent it into the left field bullpen to break a 2-2 tie in the third and deciding game of the College World Series finals.

It was Norwood’s third homer of the year, his first since April 19, and Vanderbilt’s first since May 16. It also was only the third home run in 16 CWS games and the 22nd in 72 games by the Commodores (51-21).

Ole Miss (48-20) advanced to play No. 3 national seed Virginia on Friday night. The Rebels would need to beat the Cavaliers (51-14) on Friday and again Saturday to reach next week’s best-of-three championship series.   Will Allen, who was in the lineup as the designated hitter on Thursday night to rest a sore shoulder, snapped out of a mini-slump with three hits and three RBI to lead Mississippi past TCU 6-4 at the College World Series.

Vandy Beats Louisville 5-3 in Omaha

Adam Ravenelle anchored down with 2 and 1/3 innings of shutout relief as the Vanderbilt Commodores held on for a 5-3 victory in the opening round of the College World Series in Omaha.

Perhaps the comedic relief during stretching of the Vanderbilt team has helped to cut the tension as their success continues to grow.

Hotty Toddy: A Rebel Yell in Omaha.

The Ole Miss Rebels became the 2nd SEC team to punch their ticket to the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska this year as they beat the Ragin’ Cajuns of Louisiana-Lafayette by a score of 10-4 on the road.  Sikes Orvis and Austin Anderson both homered to power Ole Miss past the Cajuns.  It is the Rebels’ first trip to the College World Series since 1972.

Vandy Headed to Omaha!!

The Vanderbilt Commodores anchored down and scored twelve runs to capture the rubber game of the super-regional series against the Stanford Cardinal’s five spot to advance to the College World Series in Omaha.

“It’s like Christmas Day,” Vanderbilt coach Tim Corbin told Jerome Boettcher of VUCommodores.com,

“It’s like when your kids come down and they get under the Christmas tree and start opening the presents, that’s what it feels like. I don’t have to be a part of that. All I need to do is get in the dugout and watch the kids celebrate.”
