RJ Schreck hit a sacrifice fly for Vanderbilt baseball in the bottom of the ninth to beat Maryland on Saturday in the second game of the Cambria College Classic.
The Commodores (7-4) entered the bottom of the ninth trailing by one. Jack Bulger walked to lead off the inning and pinch-hitter Calvin Hewett got a bunt single. Enrique Bradfield Jr., who also had a leadoff home run in the game, singled home pinch-runner Matthew Polk for the tying run, then after an intentional walk and a strikeout, Schreck lifted a fly ball into left to score Hewett and win the game, 8-7.
Schreck, a grad transfer from Duke, started the season slow but has had a big weekend in Minneapolis. He hit two home runs in a 5-3 loss to Nebraska on Friday, then had a triple and a walk in Saturday’s game prior to the walk-off.
Schreck is hitting .263 this season with one double, two triples, two homers and six RBIs.
Freshman RJ Austin also hit two home runs in the win.
Vanderbilt finishes out the tournament by facing Minnesota at 6 p.m. Sunday on BTN+.
