The Kentucky Wildcats battled back from a three run deficit to tie their game against Vanderbilt in the top of the eight inning, but Vandy got a run in the bottom of the inning to retake the lead and that run was the winning margin as the Commodores defeated Kentucky 4-3 this afternoon. The Commodore’s standout out freshman, Tyler Beede, held Kentucky scoreless for his seven innings and was in position for the win with a 3-0 lead. Kentucky jumped on the Vandy bullpen, knotting the score. It came down to a two out fly ball by Vandy’s Spencer Navin, which glanced off Cameron Flynn’s glove on a diving attempt. That went for a triple and drove in the winning run.
