I don't know about you, but I'm still mad at Vanderbilt for this buzzer-beater in 2008 that was the start of the end for Ernie Kent at Oregon.

Baseball was able to exact some revenge last season in the form of a three-game sweep of the SEC power in Nashville, and look to keep the same trend in Eugene this weekend.

Tonight's game figures to be a pitcher's duel, as Oregon ace Jake Reed goes against Vanderbilt ace – and potential first round draft pick – Kevin Ziomek, he of the 0.82 ERA. Vanderbilt also has seven players hitting .300 or better, so Oregon's bats will need to score more than a run or two to compete.

Go Ducks!
