NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Sonny Gray scattered three hits over six innings as Vanderbilt cruised to a 10-0 victory over Belmont in the Nashville Regional on Friday night.

Vanderbilt (48-10), playing in its sixth straight regional, jumped in front with two runs in the first inning and Gray did the rest. The right-hander retired 14 straight before giving up a two-out single to Greg Brody in the fifth. Gray (11-3) allowed one base runner to reach second and struck out three, and three relievers combined to finish the shutout.

Belmont (36-25), playing in the first regional in program history, had the game get away in the sixth when Matt Hamann (9-2) allowed five hits, committed two fielding errors and threw two wild pitches, which led to six runs.

Anthony Gomez had three of Vanderbilt's 15 hits, and Curt Casali had three RBIs.
