Watch Vandy's Bleday hit walk-off to force Game 3 in Super Regionals

Walk-off home run saves Vanderbilt, 4-3

The Nashville Super Regional after dark just keeps getting better.

One day after Mississippi State’s Elijah MacNamee hit a walk-off home run in the early hours Saturday morning on the east coast, Vanderbilt answered with a rebuttal. 

Sunday morning just after 1 a.m. ET, Commodores right fielder JJ Bleday hit a walk-off homer to deep center field to even the series at one game apiece, giving Vanderbilt a 4-3 win in Game 2.
