After hitting close to .400 in last week's SEC Tournament, Vanderbilt's offensive struggles continue in Atlanta.

After hitting close to .400 in last week's SEC Tournament, Vanderbilt's offensive struggles continue in Atlanta.

Leadoff hitter David Macias hit a 3-2 pitch through short for a single, and Pedro Alvarez followed with a sharp single to right-center.

Ryan Flaherty then got down 0-2 trying to bunt, eventually flying out to center and not enough for runners to advance.

Macias then fell asleep at the wheel, taking a comfortable lead at second with Brian Hernandez at the plate. Michigan's Chris Fetter quickly turned towards second as shortstop Leif Mahler snuck in, and Macias was easily picked off.

Hernandez then popped to shallow center to end the threat.

VU 0, Michigan coming to bat.

VU can't afford to keep wasting opportunities.

Chris, do you think the fatigue factor of Vanderbilt having played later last night has any impact on this game? Apparently GT showed no sign of suffering from playing a second game on the same day, so I'm probably just overanalyzing it. :)

Thanks for your great blogging.
