Trey Lipscomb is a big-time power hitter on a team full of them for Tennessee.

On Thursday against Georgia, Lipscomb launched his latest home run to open the scoring in the second inning in Knoxville, and become the first Vol to hit 20 home runs in a season since Cody Hawn did so in 2009. He is the sixth Vol with a 20-homer season in program history and is now 4 home runs away from tying Sonny Cortez’s season-record 24 homers in the 1998 season, according to Tennessee Stats and Info.

The ball reached 105 m.p.h. off the bat soaring beyond the left-field fence to reach 417 feet.

The long ball has been a theme to the Tennessee season.

Tennessee’s 4 hitters with the most home runs, Lipscomb, Jordan Beck (13), Jorel Ortega (11) and Luc Lipcius (11) have combined for 54 home runs. That total ranks more than 217 teams in Division I.

This is the final regular season series for Tennessee. The Vols are looking for their 11th series victory of the season after they dropped their first three-game set of the year last weekend at Kentucky.
