Vanderbilt’s baseball team did something on Saturday that you don’t see very often: They successfully executed a triple steal.
Facing Florida in the SEC Baseball Tournament, the Commodores had bases loaded in the top of the 9th when they sent all three runners. Anthony Gomez, who had already stolen second and third that inning, took a walking lead and stole home on an 0-1 pitch. Both runners behind him also stole their bases safely.
It’s almost like Brighthouse Sports Network knew what was coming, because they had a camera on all three runners as the steals were taking place:
Vandy had six stolen bases that inning, so maybe that’s why Brighthouse was focusing on them. The triple steal made it 6-4, and then Will Cooper, who was batting when the triple steal took place, delivered a two-run single to make it 8-4. Vandy won 8-6 and advanced to the championship game.
