For the first time this season, the Vanderbilt Commodores were shutout Wednesday night in the SEC tournament being held in Hoover, Alabama. Head baseball coach Tim Corbin says the team will have to “write it off.”

“Today was an anomaly – obviously. When you play like we have and you come out and lose five to nothing, that hasn’t happened.”

Corbin gave credit to the Texas A&M Aggies, whose pitchers held Vanderbilt to the team’s lowest number of hits this year.

Vanderbilt has been having its best season, breaking the SEC record for wins in a season and ranked number one in college baseball. The team now heads to the losers bracket with a game this afternoon against either South Carolina or Mississippi State.
