NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Vanderbilt scored eight runs in the eighth inning to overcome a six-run deficit Friday night as the No. 12-ranked Commodores tied the series against No. 2 Arkansas with a 10-8 win at Hawkins Field.

Troy LaNeve underlined his senior day with a three-point blast late in the eighth to give Vanderbilt the 10-8 advantage after the Commodores dragged all night.

Vanderbilt trailed 8-2 going into the eighth inning before going eight runs on five hits, two walks and one hit per pitch. The six-point comeback is the most for Vandy since an eight-point rally against Ole Miss in the SEC Tournament in 2019.

Vanderbilt fell behind as soon as the Razorbacks made three runs off the top of the first.

The Commodores entered the scoring column bottom of third as another senior, TJ McKenzie, hit his first home run of the season, a solo shot to left field. Enrique Bradfield Jr. followed with a home run on the opposite court himself as the Commodores faced off for the fifth time this season.

Arkansas took the lead 4-2 with a run in the fourth and used a three-run homer in the top of the sixth to lead 8-2.

The Commodores started the eight-run eighth with a field single from RJ Austin. Jonathan Vastine followed with a walk and McKenzie hit a bunt single to load the bases with no one on.

A Bradfield sack fly scored Austin and Diaz loaded the bases again with a right single. RJ Schreck was hit by a pitch to bring Vastine home and cut Arkansas’ lead to four. Parker Noland then worked a walk to bring another run and keep the bases full.

Jack Bulger made it a one-point ball game with a string to left field that tagged Diaz and Schreck and brought LaNeve to the plate with a pair and an out. LaNeve, making his first start of the season, sent the first pitch he saw 415 feet to left center to complete the return and put the Dores ahead 10-8.

It was LaNeve’s first home run since April 9, 2022.

Senior Nick Maldonado (S, 7), who was also honored for Senior Day on Friday, took the mound in the ninth and slammed the door with the help of a home steal into center field by Bradfield.

Bryce Cunningham was credited with the win to improve to 2-2 on the season. Cunningham allowed a run on a hit on two frames. Vandy starting pitcher Devin Futrell struck out eight in six innings of work and walked just one.

Vanderbilt (36-17, 18-11 SEC) is targeting a series win over Arkansas (39-14, 20-9 SEC) at 2 p.m. Saturday on SECN+.
