Vanderbilt baseball hosting dreams dead as LSU sweeps

Vanderbilt baseball came into its three-game series against LSU with a chance to still host a regional. But on Saturday, the Commodores watched as the final home game of the season ended in just about the most horrific way possible: watching a six-run lead turn into an 11-run deficit with an 11-run eighth inning as Vanderbilt was swept by the Tigers, losing 13-2 on Thursday, 8-3 on Friday and 21-10 on Saturday.

The Commodores (35-19, 14-16 SEC) finish with their first losing conference record since 2009. They were on track to pull out of an early season slump after winning road series against Georgia and Arkansas, but instead the late collapse leaves far more questions than answers.
