by -

The Vols took the field on Saturday afternoon, coming off a Friday night win and looking to take the series, with another win over the Tigers.

Tennessee got off to a hot start in the 1st inning, thanks to Drew Gilbert, Luc Lipcius and Pete Derkay, giving the Vols a 4-0 lead. Things went back and forth through the next few innings, until the Vols exploded in the 5th and 6th.  Evan Russell started the scoring with a 2-RBI double to left field. In the 6th inning, Tennessee took it up a notch, thanks to a 3-run double by Drew Gilbert.

As the Vols were looking to add a few more insurance runs, Luc Lipcius hit a rocket over the left field wall and Tennessee took an 11-4 lead, never looking back.

 

The Vols started Will Heflin, who gave up four runs on 5 hits, though he didn’t get much help from his defense in his three innings on the mound. Camden Sewell, Kirby Connell and Elijah Pleasants finished it off for Tennessee, allowing zero runs through the remainder of the game.
