Vandy scores on wild pitch in 9th, beats Stanford 6-5 at CWS

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Spencer Jones scored on Brendan Beck’s wild pitch with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning to keep Vanderbilt alive in the College World Series with a 6-5 walk-off victory over Stanford. The reigning national champion Commodores were down to their last strike before winning in shocking fashion against the Pac-12 pitcher of the year. Beck had been dominant since beginning his rare relief appearance in the seventh. Vanderbilt avoided its shortest stay at the CWS in its five appearances. The Commodores  play North Carolina State in the Bracket 1 final needing to beat  the Wolfpack Friday and again Saturday to reach the best-of-three championship series a second straight time.
