2016 NCAA Baseball Tournament: Xavier vs. Vanderbilt preview

The Musketeers will face Vanderbilt for the second time in two and a half months. The stakes are higher this time.

Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

The Xavier Musketeers came out of nowhere to win the Big East and Big East Tournament this season.

Their reward? A meeting with a Vanderbilt team that won the National Championship two years ago, and were the National Runners-Up last season.

The Musketeers faced the Commodores in Nashville in March, and it didn't go particularly well for the X-Men, as they suffered a three game series sweep in which they were outscored 26-5.

The game was originally set to be played Friday night, but Mother Nature had other plans, as Nashville was hit with torrential downpours throughout the day.
