The Volunteers will open with a Tuesday night tilt against Belmont at 7 p.m. before welcoming Auburn to Lindsey Nelson Stadium for a three-game set, Thursday through Saturday. The first two games are set to start at 6 p.m. and first pitch for the series finale will be at 2 p.m. Prior to Saturday’s contest, the Big Orange will honor its five seniors – Rob Catapano, Matt Duffy, Tyler Horne, Josh Liles and Khayyan Norfork. Tennessee was 1-4 last week, splitting a home-and-home midweek series with Middle Tennessee State before dropping a trio of contests at LSU in Baton Rouge. Junior Charley Thurber returned to the lineup after missing 14 games with a wrist injury and immediately made his presence known, hitting safely in all three games of UT’s series at LSU. The Elmira, N.Y., native was 5-for-10 (.500) on the weekend with a double, three RBIs and three stolen bases. After going 1-for-3 in the series opener, Thurber recorded a pair of hits in the second game against the Tigers with a single to center and a double high off the wall in right. He also stole his second base of the season. The 6-4 outfielder was even more impressive on Sunday, collecting two more hits, driving in three runs and swiping a career-best two bags. In the series finale against the Tigers, Liles played in his 184th collegiate contest, placing him in a tie with Stevie Daniel (1999-2001) for the 10th most in Tennessee history. Freshman Andrew Toles stole his 20th base of the season in that same game, tying him with Lar Gilligan (1989) for the third-most ever by a UT rookie.

SCOUTING THE BRUINS Belmont enters its Tuesday night tilt at Tennessee with a 29-23 overall record after dropping two of the three contests at home to Florida Gulf Coast last weekend. The Bruins staved off a sweep with a 4-3 victory on Sunday. They are an even 10-10 on the road this season. Senior Nate Woods has been impressive in pulling double duty for Belmont this season. At the plate, he leads the squad with a .358 batting average and ranks second with 10 home runs and 48 RBIs. He also has a team- high 17 doubles and has swiped eight bases. Woods will get the start on the mound against the Vols on Tuesday night as well. As a pitcher, the 6-6 right- hander is 4-5 with a 7.60 ERA in 11 appearances, including 10 starts. Originally from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, he has struck out 22 and walked 16 in 45.0 innings of work. Opponents are hitting .313 off of him. Backing him offensively will be a trio of long-ball threats in seniors Derek Hamblen and Tim Egerton and freshman Greg Brody. A 6-0 infielder, Brody is hitting .322 with seven home runs and 35 RBIs. Egerton, a transfer outfielder from Columbia State CC, tops the team with 12 bombs and 51 RBIs, while Hamblen, a Plano, Texas, native, is hitting .311 with nine four-baggers, 30 RBIs and a squad-best 22 stolen bases in 25 attempts.

    TODD RALEIGHFourth SeasonWestern Carolina, 1991Record at UT: 106-111 (.488)Career Record: 363-320 (.531)

    Tennessee head coach Todd Raleigh is in his fourth season at Rocky Top after guiding his alma mater, Western Carolina, for eight seasons. While at UT, Raleigh has had 12 players drafted, including two in 2008 and five more in both 2009 and 2010, and two more sign free-agent contracts following the completion of their eligibility. Nine of those players were drafted in the top-20

    rounds, highlighted by 2009 first-round selection Kentrail Davis. In 19 seasons as a collegiate coach, Raleigh has now produced a total of 45 MLB draft picks and 63 professional players.

    Under Raleigh's guidance, the Vols have steadily moved up in the NCAA RPI in each of the last three sea-sons, improving from 91 in 2008 to 58 in 2009 and 45 in 2010. Over the past two seasons, Raleighs squads have belted out 168 round-trippers (87 in 2009, 81 in 2010), good for the second-most prolific two-year period in school history.

    During his tenure in Cullowhee, Raleighs clubs won two regular-season Southern Conference champion-ships, one Southern Conference tournament title, turned in five top-three league finishes and made a pair of NCAA Regional appearancesreaching the Regional final both times.

    His 2007 WCU team posted a winning record against teams in the top 35 of the RPI and earned a rare mid-major at-large bid to the NCAA Championships. The Catamounts were touted by ESPNs Kyle Peterson as featuring an SEC-style offense.

    In his 19 seasons as a collegiate assistant or head coach, Raleighs teams have finished third or better in their respective league 12 times (63 percent).

    Raleigh and his wife, Stephanie, have four children: Caleb John Cal (13), Emma Grace (11), Carley Elizabeth (4) and Todd Anthony T (1).

    expectations on myself and this program than I do, UT Head Coach Todd Raleigh said. There is no doubt in my mind that we have this program headed in the right direction, especially this season. Everyone is on the same page in terms of coming to work every single day with the mindset of getting better. In the long run, that is really the only thing we can control.

    Head Coach Todd Raleigh

    Since I got here in the fall of 2007, we have improved every aspect of this program, from the facilities, to the Academic Progress Rate to the NCAA RPI. The last piece of the puzzle is putting it all together on the field and getting to the postseason. Has it happened as fast as we would have liked? Most certainly not. I understand the expectations of our fans, and this may sound odd, but I like the fact that some of them arent too happy right now. I love that they expect greatness, just like I do. Have there been some extenuating circumstances that have slowed us down a little? Sure, but our goal from day one has been to build a program, not a team. I have no doubt that that stuff is in the past and we are moving forward. We are going to be a national power, no question about that. I am confident that we are headed in the right direction and cannot wait to get this season started.

    Head Coach Todd Raleigh

    Ash brings a lot of energy and great ideas to our staff, especially with his insight on base running. It is going to be a critical year in that area because of all of the bat changes and he has done a tremendous job revamping our efforts on that part of the game. We stole a lot of bases last year, but I think we are going to step it up another level this season and put a lot of pressure on opposing teams.

    Head Coach Todd Raleigh

    We have been working on a lot of small ball stuff. We don't have as many power guys, so we have to get back to the basics. A lot of bunting, base running and just small ball stuff. It's not a traditional team like we have had in the past but we are getting use to it. Top to bottom, it's just a group of scrappy guys. We are going to score runs in many different ways and put pres-sure on the other team to make mistakes."

    Senior First Baseman Josh Liles

    Our attitude is one of high intensity. That is one thing that we have focused on in our practices and scrimmages this fall and leading up to the spring. The chemisty on this team is definitely improved over what it has been in the last couple of years. We have a close-knit group and a group of seniors to lead us. We've set the bar high from the very beginning. The SEC Tournament is a bare minimum."

    NOTEWORTHYTEAM QUICK HITSuTennessee hosted the first ESPNU Thursday

    Night SEC Game of the Week when South Carolina made the trek to Rocky Top on April 7. The Vols will also played in the second such game at Alabama on April 14.

    uUT's 21 outfield assists are the most it has recorded since the statistic was first kept during the 2000 campaign.. Chris Fritts leads the team with eight, followed by six by Charley Thurber, three each by Andrew Toles and Chris Pierce and one by Drew Steckenrider.

    uAfter starting the season on a roll at the plate, the Vols have hit a rough patch offensively lately. The team batting average topped out at .342 15 games into the year, but has since dropped to .275 as the Big Orange is hitting just .229 in SEC games.

    uSeven different UT pitchers have combined to record a total of 12 saves this year, after the entire team had just four in 2010.

    uThe Vols have hit six home runs on the first pitch of an at-bat this season.

    uTennessee has struck out just 276 times this

    season, the second-fewest of any team in the SEC.

    uUT's five-game run without an error from 3/25-4/1 was its longest since posting five straight error-less contests from 5/9-5/16 in the 1993 campaign.

    uThe Big Orange is currently tied with LSU for second in the SEC with 83 stolen bases. They are behind only Arkansas which has 104.

    uThe contest with Austin Peay on March 16 marked the Orange and White's first road game of the year, as Tennessee opened the 2011 season with 16 straight home games. That is the longest home-stand for the Vols since they played 22 consecutive games in Knoxville to open the 1963 campaign.

    INDIVIDUAL QUICK HITSuSenior Josh Liles needs five more hits to become

    the 15th member of UT's 200-hits club. The Sunday game at LSU was his 184th collegiate contest, plac-ing him 10th all-time at UT in games played.uWith 20 stolen bases, Andrew Toles has the

    third-most thefts of any freshman in UT history, tying him with Lar Gilligan.uKhayyan Norfork is 5-for-8 (.625) with the bases

    loaded and 22-for-53 (.415) with RISP.

    uWhen a bruised finger kept junior Zach Osborne out of the starting lineup on Saturday, May 7, it snapped a streak of 148 consecutive starts. Prior to that game, the last time Osborne was not Tennessee's starting shortstop came against Radford on March 3, 2009, a span of 795 days.

    uOsborne ranks second in school history with 20 career sacrifice bunts. He needs just two more to tie Bryce Christensen (94-95) for the all-time lead.uDuring SEC play, Osborne has been on fire at

    the plate, hitting a team-best .326 (28-for-86) with at least two hits in nine contests. Over his last 13 league games, he is hitting .358 (19-for-53).uWith three saves this season, junior Matt

    Ramsey has increased his career total to nine, plac-ing him in a tie with Rich DeLucia (83-86) for the fifth-most in the UT annals. Todd Helton holds the school record with 23.uWhen Ramsey took the mound at the start of

    UT's contest against South Carolina on April 9, it marked his 56th career appearance, tying him with Brandon Crowe (00-04), Jeff Owen (83, 85-87) and Rich DeLucia (83-86) for the 10th most all-time in Tennessee history.uJunior Steven Gruver has pitched almost twice

    as many innings (88.1) as any other member of the Tennessee pitching staff this season. Senior Rob Catapano is second at 44.2 IP.

    LINE IN THE SANDTennessee has a pretty good idea of how the

    game is going to end up once the sixth inning rolls around this year. When leading after that frame, the Vols are an impressive 22-1. When trailing, however, they are 0-25.

    MR. (DEFENSIVE) WIZARDTennessee junior shortstop Zach Osborne has

    been put his significant defensive abilities on full display this season, accumulating just eight errors through 46 games played.

    He has been even more impressive in SEC play, during which he has made just two miscues, one of which resulted in a bruised finger that forced him out of the lineup recently. That error was his first in 18 league games and snapped a streak 78 defensive chances without an error (29 puttous, 49 assists).

    GRUVER TABBED TO CAPITAL ONE ACADEMIC ALL-DISTRICT FIRST TEAM

    Tennessee junior starting pitcher Steven Gruver has been named to the Capital One Academic All-District 4 First Team, as announced by the College Sports Information Directors of America. The Canfield, Ohio, will move on to the national ballot for Academic All-American honors which will be selected later this month

    A kinesiology major, Gruver sports a cumulative GPA of 3.78. He is the 10th Volunteer to ever earn academic all-district honors and first since Julio Borbon picked up second-team accolades in 2006. To be nominated for the team, a student-athlete must have a 3.3 or better cumulative GPA and be in their second year of competition and academically at a school.

    SIX VOLS ON MLB OPENING DAY ROSTERS A total of six former Vols were on the Opening Day roster of an MLB team, not including members of two coaching staffs. Luke Hochevar became just the third UT player to ever earn the honor of being his team's Opening Day starting pitcher, doing so for this year's Kansas City Royals. The only other two Vols to do so are Tommy Bridges with the Detroit Tigers (1933, 1939 and 1943) and Tommy Smithson with the Texas Rangers (1983). In his first full season in the bigs is Toronto Blue Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia. Chase Headley enters his fifth year with the San Diego Padres while Julio Borbon begins his third year with the Texas Rangers. A nine-year MLB veteran, R.A. Dickey is in his second year with the New York Mets, while Todd Helton is the longest-tenured former Vol as he begins his 15th season in a Colorado Rockies uniform.

    THE TALENTED MR. NORFORK (FROM RIPLEY) One of the premier hitters in the nation this season, UT senior second baseman Khayyan Norfork has hit safely in 37 of the first 50 games of the 2011 campaign and leads the team with 19 multiple-hit contests. The Ripley, Tenn., native is also among the top 20 in the nation and second in the SEC with 26 stolen bases.

    GRUVER SETTING THE TONE ON THE MOUND Junior starting pitcher Steven Gruver has done a fantastic job setting the tone for the UT pitching staff. In his first three starts alone, he led the Vols to a pair of shutouts before tossing a complete game in his fourth start. So far this year, he has struck out 77 and walked just 26 in a team-high 88.1 innings of work, averaging nearly seven innings per start. He went six scoreless against Milwaukee on Opening Day before shutting down Canisius for seven frames on Feb. 26 when he posted a career-high 10 strike-outs. He has now pitched 6.0+ innings 15 times in his career, including 12 of his 13 starts this season.

    GRUVER NAMED TO CB360.COM PRIMETIME HONOR ROLL

    After firing a four-hit, seven-inning complete game in the first contest of a doubleheader at No. 24 Alabama on April 16, junior southpaw Steven Gruver was named to the CollegeBaseball360.com Primetime Weekly Honor Roll for the second time

    Senior third baseman Matt Duffy posted one of the most memorable offensive performances in Tennessee history against New Orleans on March 9, 2011, becoming just the second UT player to ever hit for the cycle. Duffy finished the contest 4-for-6 at the plate with a career-high three runs scored and four RBIs. He had a double in the first inning, a triple in the fourth, his second home run of the season in the fifth and a single in the eighth.

    2011 SEC STANDINGSin his career. He also earned the honor once last season after

    logging seven shutout innings at Oregon State.. Against the Tide, the Canfield, Ohio, native struck out five and scattered four hits, all singles, to help the Vols snap a nine-game skid.

    DUFFY LOOKS TO GET BACK ON TRACK A transfer from Vermont, UT senior third base-man Matt Duffy has been one of the team's most consistent players this season, starting all 50 games at third and hitting .316 in the middle of the lineup. After going hitless in 17 consecutive at-bats at one point, he broke out of his slump by going 4-for-9 (.444) in the three-game series at Alabama.. The Milton, Mass., native is tied for the team lead with six home runs and 37 RBIs and ranks third in the SEC with 13 HBPs. After a slow start in 2010, his first at Tennessee, Duffy picked up the pace at the end of the year, leading the Big Orange with a .348 batting average in SEC play.

    CATAPANO HAS SIGHTS SET ON MARINESUnless the option to continue his baseball career

    presents itself, Catapano plans on entering Officer Candidates School, a 10-week program in Quantico, Va., designed to train, evaluate and screen can-didates for potential as Marine Corp officers. Graduates of OCC are commissioned immediately upon graduation as Second Lieutenants and sent to The Basic School at Quantico for six months of further training.

    RAMSEY ON JOHNNY BENCH AWARD WATCH LIST In his first season as the starting catcher at Tennessee, junior Matt Ramsey has solidified him-self as one of the top catch-and-throw backstops in the country, gunning down 13 of 29 potential baserunners (44.8%). He was recently added to the Johnny Bench Award Watch List, given to the top catcher in the country.

    BENNETT OFF TO STRONG START After hitting 27 home runs as a senior at Farragut High School, UT freshman catcher/DH Ethan Bennett has wasted little time adjusting to the college game, as he is tied with senior Matt Duffy for the team lead with six home runs and is hitting .261 (30-for-115) with 23 RBIs through his first 37 games at Rocky Top. After missing the first two weekends of the season with a hamstring injury, Bennett exploded onto the scene with four home runs in three games. During that stretch, he hitting .583 (7-for-12) with 16 RBIs and six runs scored. Bennett's talent isn't limited to the baseball dia-mond though, as he is also an accomplished musi-cian with the ability to play the guitar, bass guitar, banjo, mandolin and piano.

    VOLS OFF AND RUNNING Prior to the season, there was quite a bit of talk about Tennessee implementing a new, more aggressive baserunning philosophy. The Vols have walked-the-walk so far in 2011 as they have record-ed 83 stolen bases in the first 50 games of the sea-son, good for second in the SEC. By comparison, UT never reached that total since it had 87 in 2007. The new baserunning program was on full dis-play on Feb. 27 against Canisius, when the Big Orange was a near-perfect 9-for-10 on the base-paths, including a pair of double steals and three thefts of third. The last time a Tennessee team had nine stolen bases in one game came against Morehead State on Feb. 8, 2003. UT had been successful in 20 straight stolen base attempts and 29 of 30 tries before having a runner thrown out on March 9. With 26 thefts, senior Khayyan Norfork is just two off the league lead and just shy of the total for the entire South Carolina (32) team. Not far behind Norfork is speedy freshman Andrew Toles who has the fourth-most stolen bases in the SEC with 20 in 26 attempts. That ties Lar Gilligan (1989) for the third-most ever by a Tennessee freshman.

    Former University of Tennessee standout student-athlete and longtime baseball coach Bill Wright passed away on April 21. A Knoxville native, Wright was the starting guard on Tennessee's 1943 SEC Champion basketball squad. Wright, who had a promising career in professional baseball cut short by illness, was baseball and basketball coach at Knoxville West High School before being hired in 1960 by Bowden Wyatt as the first full-time academic advisor at UT. Wright was promoted to head baseball coach at Tennessee in 1963, and compiled an impressive overall record of 408-308-2 (.570) during his 19 years with the Vols. The longest-tenured coach in UT baseball history, Wright's 408 victories were the school record when he retired and that total remains second in program history.

    FORMER VOL BASEBALL COACH BILL WRIGHT PASSES AWAY

  • Page 6 2011 Tennessee Volunteer Baseball Game Notes

    SAVING THE DAY One of the most eye-popping stats for Tennessee this season has come from the back of the team's bullpen. After recording four saves over the course of the entire 2010 campaign, the Vols already have 12 saves in 50 games this season, with seven differ-ent pitchers doing the honors no less. Matt Ramsey and Nick Williams have three, Zack Godley has two, while Nick Blount, T.J. Thornton, Levi Dean and Drew Steckenrider each have one. With nine career saves, Ramsey is currently tied with Rich DeLucia (83-86) for the fifth most in Tennessee history.

    VOLS MAKING THE GRADE Academics have been a top priority for the Vols since Todd Raleigh arrived in 2008. Proving that point, Tennessee increased its multi-year APR to 936, up from 850 in 2005. That increase represented the largest single-year jump by any team at UT as it had an APR of 898 last year. For the 2009-10 school year alone, the Vol baseball team posted a spectacular 982 APR.

    VOLS NOT LISTED IN NOTICE OF ALLEGATIONS The University of Tennessee received a Notice of Allegations from the NCAA on Feb. 23. While an examination into potential rules violations by the University of Tennessee baseball program was refer-enced in the initial Letter of Inquiry from the NCAA, there were no alleged violations by the baseball program listed in this Notice.

    RALEIGH REACHES CENTURY MARK AT UT With a 7-3 road victory over Lipscomb on March 23, Tennessee head coach Todd Raleigh collected his 100th win at Rocky Top. In his fourth season with the Vols, the UT skipper is now 106-111 (.488). Raleigh becomes just the fourth Tennessee coach to reach that mark in Knoxville, joining John Whited (145 wins/1982-87), Bill Wright (408/1963-81) and Rod Delmonico (699/1990-2007).

    SHUTOUT STREAK OVER Prior to its 4-0 victory over Milwaukee on Opening Day (2/18), Tennessee's last shutout came

    on March 10, 2007, a span of three years, 11 months and eight days (209 games), when James Adkins and Ryne Simpson combined to blank Siena, 5-0, in Knoxville. It didn't take the Vols to pick up another shut-out as they accomplished the feat once again just a week later against Canisius (2/25), also by a 4-0 score. UT picked up another on March 9 with a 14-0 blanking over New Orleans.

    Longest Time Between Shutouts 1. 209 games 3/10/07 (Siena) - 2/18/11 (Mlwaukee) Three years, 11 months, 8 days (1441 days) 2. 84 games 4/30/88 (Auburn) - 3/22/90 (Tusculum) 1 year, 10 months, 22 days (691 days) 3. 74 games 4/17/29 (Hiwassee) - 5/2/47 (Lincoln Memorial) 18 years, 15 days (6589 days) 4. 69 games 5/17/47 (Tenn.

    NORFORK EXCELS ON OPENING DAY...AGAIN For the second straight season, Vol second base-man Khayyan Norfork opened the year with a bang. After going 4-for-5 with two runs scored, an RBI and a stolen base in his UT debut against Xavier in 2010, Norfork kicked off the 2011 campaign with a 2-for-4 effort, knocking in three of the team's four runs against Milwaukee in its 4-0 victory. In his two Opening Day starts combined, Norfork is 6-for-9 (.667) with four RBIs, two stolen bases and two runs scored.

    RECORD-SETTING ATTENDANCE ON OPENING WEEKEND

    Tennessee set a new school-record for total atten-dance in a home-opening series, drawing 6,111 fans (2,037/game) to the three-game set against Milwaukee, Feb. 18-20. The previous record was set in 1997 when the Vols drew 5,877 over three games

    against Eastern Kentucky. With 2,345 on hand on the first day of the 2011 season, UT had its second-highest attendance for a home-opening contest, behind only the 2.753 that saw the Vols take on Louisville on Feb. 25, 1995.

    ROCKY TOP BLOODLINES Freshman centerfielder Andrew Toles was born to bleed orange. A fourth-round selection by the Florida Marlins last June, Toles decided to put his professional career on hold in order to attend the same school where his father and uncle both excelled on the gridiron. His father, Alvin, was a hard-hitting linebacker at Tennessee (1981-84) before being drafted in the first round of the 1985 NFL draft by the New Orleans Saints. His uncle, Johnnie Jones, also is the fourth-leading rusher in Tennessee history (82-84) and spent time with the Seattle Seahawks in the NFL and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the CFL. His mother, Vicky, meanwhile, played basketball at the University of New Orleans, and his sister, Morgan plays basketball at Auburn.

    NEW FACES IN THE CROWD The Volunteers return 17 players, including seven starters, from last year's squad which finished with a record of 30-26. Joining them is a talented group of 14 newcomers, headlined by freshman Andrew Toles, a fourth-round pick by the Florida Marlins in the 2010 MLB First-Year Player Draft, and last year's Tennessee Gatorade Player of the Year, Ethan Bennett from Farragut High School. All 14 newcomers have already made their way into a game this season.

    NEW FACES ON THE COACHING STAFF In addition to the 14 new players, Tennessee also welcomes a pair of new coaches in assistant coach Ash Lawson and volunteer assistant Barrett Shaft. A former head coach at Tennessee Wesleyan, Lawson comes to Rocky Top from the San Diego Padres for whom he was a regional crosschecker. He was named the Padres' Scout of the Year in 2006. Shaft is in his first season as a volunteer assistant after serving as a manager for the team last year. He is a 2008 graduate of Western Carolina.

    In an effort to get a few laughs out of his teammates and fans this season, senior Tyler Horne selected Elton John's "Circle of Life" from the animated motion picture "The Lion King," as his walk-up song. It has achieved its stated goal as both players and fans alike have embraced it. When Horne strides to the dish, it is not uncommon to see people imitating the scene from the movie where Rafiki presents Simba for all of the kingdom to see.

    HOMEGROWN TALENT PLENTIFUL ON TENNESSEE ROSTER Tennessees roster includes 12 players from the state of Tennessee (38.7 percent of the roster). Five Vols are from Knox County and one is from Sevier County (Seymour), while two others hail from West Tennessee and four are from Middle Tennessee. Four of the local players hail from Farragut High School, including senior Rob Catapano, junior Matt Ramsey and freshmen Ethan Bennett and Nick Williams. Bennett was named a 2010 Louisville Slugger High School All American, Tennessee Gatorade Player of the Year and TBCA Class AAA Player of the Year after setting a state single-season record with 27 home runs. He also hit .420 with 73 RBIs and scored 57 runs and set the national record for home runs in consecutive games, belting 16 during a 10-game stretch in April. Williams also played a big role in leading Farragut to three straight state titles with Bennett, going 19-0 with 137 strikeouts and an 0.85 ERA during his three seasons on the varsity squad.

    THE COLOR ORANGE On Sunday, Feb. 20, ESPN aired a feature-length documentary on former two-sport Tennessee star Condredge Holloway, entitled "The Color Orange." The documentary, produced and directed by country music star Kenny Chesney, detailed Holloway's collegiate career as the first black quar-terback in the SEC. In addition to his exploits on the gridiron, Holloway also served as the starting shortstop at UT, garnering first-team All-America recognition in 1975 after hitting .396 with 20 RBIs and two home runs.

    SERIES HISTORYTennessee leads the all-time series with Belmont, 5-3, dating back to the first meeting between the two

    squads in 2000, a 6-5 UT win. All seven matchups have occurred in Knoxville. The Vols have won the last two contests and four of the last five. Belmont's three wins came in 2004, 2005 and 2008.

    LAST SEASON Blake Forsythe crushed his second grand slam of the season and finished with a career-high tying five RBIs as the University of Tennessee baseball team cruised to a 13-5 triumph over Belmont on April 27. In addition to his grand slam, Forsythe also had a run-scoring double to finish the game 2-for-3 with five RBIs, tying his career-high which set against Ohio on May 7, 2009. Fellow classmates Josh Liles and Khayyan Norfork also had strong days at the dish, scoring three runs apiece. Liles was 3-for-3 in the contest, while Norfork had one hit and walked a personal-best three times. Zach Osborne also had two hits and three runs in the UT victory, including his fifth home run of the season. Steven Gruver turned in a solid start, going five innings and allowing three runs on four hits and three walks while striking out two to earn his second victory of the season. Will Locante surrendered just a single hit in two scoreless frames, while Alan Walden retired all three batters he faced in a perfect inning of work. D.J. Leffler closed out the contest, allowing two unearned runs on one hit and a walk in the ninth.
