Belmont bests No. 7 Vanderbilt behind top pitching performances

  Belmont's Patrick McGrath and Matthew Kinney allowed only four hits in the 4-1 victory.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Patrick McGrath and Matthew Kinney combined for a masterful four-hitter against Vanderbilt on Tuesday at Rose Park. The Bruins defeated the Commodores 4-1 and swept the season series for the first time in history. 

McGrath received his team best 6th win on the mound completing 7.2 innings of work. He struck out 5 batters faced and only allowed one run. Kinney (Alpharetta, Ga.) pitched the last 1.1 innings and struck out 3 of the 7 batters he faced picking up his 5th save. 

The Bruins received all the offense they needed from Alec Diamond's two hits and two runs scored and multiple hits by Matt Beaty, Nick Egli, and Brennan Washington.

The game was tight all the way until the Bruins scored two insurance runs in the bottom of the eighth to extend the lead to the final margin.
