CWS Highlights: Vanderbilt 3 – Virginia 2

06/26/2014

John NorwoodOMAHA, NE – It took 120 years, but first the first time in school history, Vanderbilt has a national championship in a men’s sport.

The Commodores topped Virginia 3-2 in Game Three of the College World Series with the big blow coming off the bat of John Norwood. The Vanderbilt center fielder broke a 2-2 tie in the 8th with a home run off hard-throwing Virginia reliever Nick Howard.

Carson Fulmer pitched five-plus solid innings before giving way to Hayden Stone and Adam Ravenelle, who tossed up zeroes in relief.

After Norwood’s home run, Virginia loaded the bases in the bottom of the eighth, but Ravenelle shut the door with back-to-back ground outs.

Kevin Kugler and Scott Graham called the action from TD Ameritrade Park.
