Tennessee opened Sunday’s winner-take-all Game 3 against Evansville with a bang. The Vols have never looked back, setting a home run record and piling up the runs in the Knoxville Super Regional conclusion.

In the bottom of the 1st inning, Christian Moore led off the game with a bullet of a home run to left. That blast was tracked at 426 feet and 115 mph off the bat.

Since then, Tennessee has been racking up the home runs. Dean Curley and Dalton Bargo kept the power surge going with back-to-back blasts in the bottom of the 2nd.

The bottom of the 5th provided more long balls with Bargo and Moore both delivering their 2nd home runs of the game. Billy Amick punctuated the frame with a 2-run shot over the batter’s eye in center field.

In the 5th inning, Cal Stark would deliver a 3-run blast for the Vols. It was Tennessee’s 7th of the game, setting a new season high for home runs in a game. The 7th home run also carries additional significance for the program.

7 home runs ties Tennessee’s program record for home runs in a game, and it sets the record the most home runs by the Vols in a postseason game. Tennessee’s previous record of 6 home runs in a postseason game came during the 2021 season against LSU.

With 6 innings complete, Tennessee has gotten home runs from Christian Moore (2), Billy Amick, Dean Curley, Dalton Bargo (2) and Cal Stark to build a 12-1 lead entering the 7th inning. Barring something drastic, Tennessee looks primed to finish off Evansville and punch a return ticket to Omaha.
