Last night the SEC won another College World Series as Vanderbiilt topped Virginia 3-2 in, really, what was one helluva finale. The game winner for Vanderbilt came on a home run by John Norwood in the eighth inning, made more iconic by there being so few home runs during the entire CWS and that it was Vandy's first home run in over a month.

And today the USA takes on Germany to see if they can advance to the knock-out stage.

John Norwood picked the right time to hit Vanderbilt's first home run of the College World Series. Norwood's eighth inning dinger was the deciding run to deliver an NCAA Championship for Tim Corbin and the Commodores.
