College Baseball Preview: Vanderbilt Commodores Vs. Belmont Bruins

Our number four team, Vanderbilt Commodores, take on the Belmont Bruins in a midweek matchup. Who should you watch? We’ll tell you.

Although game time has moved due to inclement weather, the Vanderbilt Commodores will still face off against Belmont Bruins. The Vanderbilt Commodores are on a double digit win streak and hope to continue that streak before they meet South Carolina for a three game weekend series.

The Commodores went 4-0 last week and were led by Tate Kolwyck and freshman Carter Holton. Kolwayck recently received the SEC Player of the Week honor while Holton received the SEC Co-Freshman of the Week. Why is this important? Vanderbilt has proven time and time again that they are a pipeline for above average baseball talent.

Belmont lost two of three in their weekend series against Wofford marking their third straight weekend series loss. The Bruins have yet to face a Top 50 team this year and have struggled with teams ranked in the 51-100 RPI range (2-4). On the other hand, Vanderbilt is 4-0 against Top 25 teams ensuring a recipe for disaster in regards to the Belmont squad.

Belmont sophomore outfielder Guy Lipscomb is a name to watch. Lipscomb has burst onto the scene after a pedestrian 2021 saw him hit .259/.328/.612 with 14 stolen bases and three doubles. Through 21 games in 2022, Lipscomb has improved his slash line to .392/.478/.532 surpassing his stole base total (19) and homerun total (1) from the previous year.

Shortstop Carter Young has turned his game around and returned to 2020 form. After a solid 2020 (.328/.373/.377), Young suffered in 2021 due to injuries (.252/.341/.559). In 2022, fully healthy, Young has hit .313/.439/.597 with four doubles, three triples and three homeruns. The power is not where it was last year but it is not concerning, yet, due to Young’s previous shoulder injury.
