2014 SEC Baseball Tournament Scores: Ole Miss Rebels 7, Vanderbilt Commodores 2

PodKATT of ATVS

The Rebels start to make their push for a national seed, while Vanderbilt goes home to wait and hope its fortunes haven't changed

And now Ole Miss has decided to assert itself in the race for a national seed -- at least for a moment -- and may have dealt a setback to Vanderbilt in doing so. But as we learned in yesterday's upset-filled second round of the SEC tournament, perhaps it's best to wait awhile before jumping to any conclusions.

Ole Miss held a 2-1 lead when they broke the game open in the seventh inning, scoring four runs while driving Tyler Beede from the game. By the time it was over -- Ole Miss scored another run in the top of the ninth -- Vanderbilt had allowed 20 runs over three games in Hoover, including 18 over the last two. The key question about the Commodores' national seed hopes is how much a 1-2 record will hurt their RPI; keep in mind, Vanderbilt lost a series to South Carolina in the final regular-season weekend series and saw their ranking go up.

If something similar happens this week and there's a run by Ole Miss and / or South Carolina (I know, I know: Hoover), we could yet see three national seeds out of the SEC, with one of them being Vanderbilt. But it's still a wait that Commodore fans probably don't look forward to.
