After heavy rains and threatening skies delayed the 2011 College World Series game between the Florida Gators and the Vanderbilt Commodores on Monday night, the game resumed play on Tuesday morning with a mostly empty TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha.
When we let off on Monday night, the Gators held a 3-1 lead in the bottom of the sixth with two outs for the Commodores. Steven Rodriguez, who relieved Karsten Whitson on Monday night, returned to the mound and struck out Jason Esposito to end the inning. Rodriguez finished the game with 4.1 innings pitched for the win and seven strike outs.
Florida RF (for this game) Preston Tucker went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run (15) in the fourth inning. That homer was the pivotal play of the game.
