Commodores ace Carson Fulmer, previously seen striking out seven Cal State Fullerton batters in six innings June 14, out-dueled Jones as Vandy beat Virginia, 5-1, before a crowd of 21,652 at TD Ameritrade Park.

Fulmer stymies Virginia with masterful performance

Vandy holds Virginia to 4 hits, wins CWS finals opener 5-1

Carson Fulmer combined with two relievers on a four-hitter, Will Toffey's two-run double broke a scoreless tie in the sixth, and defending national champion Vanderbilt opened the College World Series finals with a 5-1 victory over Virginia on Monday night.

Cavs' couldn't figure out Carson Fulmer

This was like the old Omaha. Not the really old Omaha — the era of “gorilla ball” or Rosenblatt Stadium — but the Omaha of more recent vintage, where a tiny deficit felt like a death sentence.

Highly touted signee Buster Posey would be brought in to unseat Jernigan, who committed a team-high 25 errors while hitting just .217.
