Fullerton leads Vandy 3-0 in CWS game suspended by weather
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Heavy rain and lightning forced the suspension of the Cal State Fullerton-Vanderbilt game at the College World Series on Sunday night.
Play will resume at 12:05 p.m. EDT on Monday with the Titans leading the defending national champion Commodores 3-0 with two outs in the bottom of the sixth inning.
The weather disrupted a magnificent performance in progress by Cal State Fullerton ace Thomas Eshelman.
Eshelman was on the mound when the teams were pulled off the field because of lightning near TD Ameritrade Park. The two-time Big West pitcher of the year had allowed four hits, walked none and struck out eight.
Fullerton scored against Vandy’s Carson Fulmer on Taylor Bryant’s RBI single in the third and on a wild pitch and Josh Vargas’ base hit in the fifth.
“It’s unfortunate that we got delayed, but I’ve been to Omaha plenty of times and weather is just something you have to deal with sometimes,” Titans coach Rick Vanderhook said. “We were playing really well and we just have to come back and continue to do the same in the morning.”
