A Will Toffey two-out, two-run double broke a scoreless tie in the sixth, and Vanderbilt rode a solid start from first-round 2015 MLB Draft pick Carson Fulmer to a 5-1 win over Virginia in Game 1 of the College World Series Championship Series Monday night in Omaha.
John Norwood hit a tiebreaking solo homer off UVA closer Nick Howard in the top of the eighth, Vandy closer Adam Ravenelle got out of a bases-loaded, one-out jam in the bottom of the eighth, and then Ravenelle closed the ninth with a pair of strikeouts, to give Vanderbilt a 3-2 win over the ‘Hoos that clinched the 2014 College World Series championship.
