Vanderbilt's Esposito streaking

The hits keep coming for a pair of former Amity standouts.
On Sunday, Yale’s Katie Yanagisawa finally had her 23-game hitting streak snapped against Harvard in an Ivy League softball contest.
Now the attention turns to Vanderbilt’s Jason Esposito who is riding a 21-game hitting streak for the nation’s third-ranked Commodores’ baseball team.
Esposito had two hits in all three games against LSU over the weekend. He has nine RBIs in his last five games and moved into a tie for eighth place with Pedro Alvarez in Vanderbilt history with his 51st career double on Sunday.
Vanderbilt is 35-5 on the season and carries a three-game hitting streak into today’s game at Western Kentucky.
Esposito, a junior, is batting .340 with five homers and a team-high 36 RBIs.
The longest hitting streak in NCAA Division I baseball history is 58 games by Robin Ventura.
