NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Philip Pfeifer threw five scoreless innings and Xavier Turner drove in three runs to lead No. 2 overall seed Vanderbilt to a 7-1 victory over Georgia Tech in an NCAA regional championship game Monday night.

Vanderbilt (54-10) tied the program record for wins in a season while claiming its fourth regional championship, and third in four years. The Commodores advance to host Louisville in a super regional.

Pfeifer (4-0) scattered four hits and handed the ball over to closer Brian Miller, who allowed one run and no hits in four innings for his 16th save.

Twelve of Vanderbilt's 13 hits were singles, including five off Georgia Tech starter Buck Farmer (9-5).

Vanderbilt outfielder Mike Yastrzemski, grandson of Hall of Famer, Carl Yastrzemski, was selected tournament MVP.

The Yellow Jackets (37-27) won three straight elimination games to force a second championship game against Vanderbilt after blanking the Commodores 5-0 on Sunday.
