NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – For the second straight year Vanderbilt baseball will head to the NCAA Louisville Regional as an at-large team.
According to a news release from the school, the Commodores will be the No. 2 seed in the regional where they will face No. 3 seeded Illinois State (31-22) on Friday.
Host Louisville (48-12) is the No. 1 regional seed as well as the No. 7 overall national seed.
Vanderbilt is 41-17 overall after going 1-2 at the SEC tournament in Hoover, Ala. The Commodores have already faced Illinois State and Louisville this season and recorded wins against both.
The Commodores are making their fifth straight NCAA tournament appearance and sixth in eight years under head coach Tim Corbin. They have made the regional championship game in four of the previous five appearances, including last year against the Cardinals.
