It was a long day for Tennessee on Sunday, as they dropped their opening game of the College World Series to Virginia. The Vols were setup for success at certain points during the game, especially putting runners in scoring position on multiple occasions. Unfortunately, they couldn’t finish the job in multiple innings, leading to the 6-0 loss.
During his postgame press conference, Tennessee’s Tony Vitello was asked about his team having to fight back, through the losers bracket.
“I think so, for sure. It’s nice when things go the way it did in the Regional and the Super Regional. But to be honest with you, our brand name is to bounce back and to answer. So, yeah, there’s no need to stew. There’s extra time between now and that game. So the time will be right to start doing what you’re talking about and prepare to answer back in the fashion that they do and have done, and Hoover is one example.”
He went on to discuss how the teams they faced in Hoover prepared them for situations like Tuesday.
“And the teams here are pretty special, but the teams in our league are downright good, too. So that’s an instance they can call on and learn from and basically kind of use the blueprint that happened there. But the blueprint started a long, long time ago. And as much as I probably was a little aggressive with them there at the end of the game, the thing I left out was they’re built for this. So that will be up to them as well as the coaching staff to kind of gather up that same approach we had in Hoover.”
