Julian Infante slides into home at the Super Regionals 

Former Westminster Christian standout Julian Infante has advanced to the College World Series with the Vanderbilt Commodores.

Infante, a senior first baseman, went 3 for 12 with a home run and three RBIs in the Super Regionals winning the series 2-1 over Duke.

No. 2 Vanderbilt (54-11) is the highest-seeded team in the eight-team College World Series field and enters the double-elimination tournament having won 27 of its last 29 games.

Vanderbilt opens against No. 7 Louisville (49-16) on Sunday (2:00 p.m., ESPN) and will face either No. 6 Mississippi State (51-13) or Auburn (38-26) in its second game.

The Commodores have played all three teams on their side of the bracket without a loss, beating Louisville 6-1 on May 7, posting a 1-0 win over Mississippi State in the SEC Tournament, and winning all four meetings against Auburn by a 37-14 margin.

Infante is hitting .350 (14 for 40) with four home runs and 11 RBIs in 10 postseason games.

He was drafted in the 36th round by the Miami Marlins earlier this month.
