Liberty breezes to 6-1 victory over Tennessee | State National Sports

Those runs would be all the Flames (43-19) would need to notch a 6-1 victory over the Vols in the opening round of Tennessee's first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2005. The Flames came out of the gates hot and didn't let the bats die down all game.

Less than 24 hours after Tennessee struggled to muster any offense in their loss to Liberty, the Vols wasted no time getting on the board first against the Seahawks.

Tennessee didn't take kindly to the possibility of returning to Knoxville without winning at least one game. Price yielded one hit in 2 2/3 innings of shutout relief. Freshman catcher Conor Pavolony also hit a grand slam which was the third Tennessee grand slam in NCAA tournament history and the first since 2001.

Unlike last night, the Vols came out ready to go in their second game of the tournament.

An impressive all-around outing for the Vols gives fans a chance to kick their Saturday night off on the right foot. UNCW committed five errors on the afternoon allowing the Vols to score three unearned runs while the game was still close.

UP NEXT: The Volunteers move on to face the loser of the UNC/Liberty game (played after presstime Saturday evening) later today. They will play the Liberty-Tennessee victor needing only one victory to advance to a best-of-three super regional series.

Jonathan Embry put Liberty ahead for good with a two-run homer off Garrett Stallings (8-5) in the first inning.

He got into some early trouble Friday night but escaped a first-inning jam after giving up a leadoff single to Justin Ammons and hitting Jay Charleston.

The Big Orange continued to be generous in the seventh as an error cost the Vols two runs as Rohrer delivered a two-run single after Galazin reached on an error with a runner on and two outs.
