'Cats rally to beat Vandy

LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY - Spencer Graeter singled home Joe Naill from first base in the 10th Sunday afternoon to give Kentucky a 6-5 victory over Vanderbilt.

Naill reached on an error by Vanderbilt second baseman Zach Simpson to lead off the 10th, the third error of the game by the Commodores (24-25, 11-16 Southeastern Conference). Graeter then blooped a single into short right field, and Naill raced around the bases to beat the throw home.

Russ Rutherford went 2-for-5 with three RBIs for the Wildcats (22-29, 8-18), including his second home run of the year. Graeter, Caleb Brock and Naill all had two hits for Kentucky.

Vanderbilt used a five-run sixth to take a 5-3 lead before Kentucky tied the game in the bottom of the inning. Scott Worth's three-run triple highlighted the inning, and the Commodores scored two more on a wild pickoff throw by Kentucky starting pitcher Seth Stanley.

Matt Zeller and John Kaye had two hits each for Vanderbilt.

Scott Wade (3-6) picked up the win, allowing two hits in 3 1-3 scoreless innings.

Jensen Lewis (3-6) took the loss, giving up three hits in four innings with five strikeouts. The run he allowed was unearned.
