NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Vanderbilt’s Jack Leiter threw a complete-game no-hitter, striking out 16 as the Commodores defeated the University of South Carolina baseball team, 5-0, Saturday morning (March 20) at Hawkins Field.
Leiter walked the opening batter of the game, Braylen Wimmer, but then retired the next 27 batters. Vanderbilt had a pair of two-run home runs from Tate Kolwyck and a sacrifice fly from Enrique Bradfield Jr. in the eighth inning for its five runs.
Brannon Jordan struck out nine in five innings, allowing three hits and two runs with three walks. Daniel Lloyd struck out a pair in 1.1 innings of relief.


  • Carolina was no-hit for the first time since Feb. 24, 1990 against Northwestern.
  • Jordan now has 38 strikeouts in 23 innings of work after his nine on Saturday.
  • Leiter moved to 5-0 on the year for Vanderbilt, joining Kumar Rocker, Friday’s starter, with a 5-0 mark.

Carolina and Vanderbilt wrap up the three-game series on Sunday afternoon (March 21) with a 1 p.m. CT (2 p.m. ET) first pitch. The game will be streamed on SEC Network Plus.
