Tennessee Baseball utility man Jared Dickey met with the media following the Vols’ 10-0 shutout, run-rule victory over Alabama A&M to discuss his performance in the game.
Dickey was a triple away from hitting the cycle, as the redshirt sophomore went 3-3 at the plate with a double, single, home run and walk.
Dickey’s home run came in the sixth inning when the Mount Juliet, Tennessee, native crushed a two-run homer off the foul pole in the Tennessee bullpen to give the Vols a 7-0 victory.
Tennessee would go on to score another run in the sixth before adding two more runs in the bottom of the eighth due to a two-run blast from backup catcher Ryan Miller. Miller’s homer gave the Vols a 10-0 lead over the Bulldogs in the eighth inning, meaning Tennessee had run-ruled their opponent according to the new NCAA rule.
Dickey spoke on Miller’s home run and how incredible it is that Miller hit a home run in his first college at-bat. Additionally, Tennessee redshirt freshman Kavares Tears hit a double in his first college at-bat on Tuesday, something else Dickey noted during the press conference.
