If there is a team with all the momentum right now, it’s the No. 2 seed Vanderbilt.

The Commodores swept the SEC regular season and tournament titles and have won 22 of their last 23 games. Now, they will try and ride that into this weekend’s regional right here in Music City.

Vanderbilt will face the No. 4 seed Ohio State, who also won its conference tournament. 

But they aren’t looking at this match-up any differently. They’ll take the same approach, which is getting contributions up and down the lineup.

The most impressive thing about this team is not winning the games, but winning them in different ways.

“You know one through nine, anyone can put up anything and change the scoreboard,” said Vandy Catcher Ty Duvall. “I just think it’s a team effort.”

“Everyone is going to step up, and Corbin talks about it all the time,” added Vandy Catcher Philip Clarke. “It might not be someone who has stepped up in the regular season, but they’re always going to get their moment. It’s really the energy of the postseason, it gets everyone going and people are going to always step up when needed on this team.”

This is Vanderbilt’s 14th consecutive regional appearance, which is the longest active streak in the SEC. Game one between the Commodores and Buckeyes is set for Friday, first pitch set for 6 p.m.
