Tyler Campbell's bases-loaded infield single in the bottom of the 10th inning gave Vanderbilt a 4-3 win over Texas Saturday night at TD Ameritrade Park Omaha, sending the Commodores to the College World Series finals against Virginia.

Campbell was in his second game filling in for third baseman Xavier Turner, who was ruled ineligible Friday for a violation of NCAA rules. Campbell had only 21 at-bats this season when he stepped to the plate in the 10th. He sent a slow grounder toward shortstop C.J. Hinojosa, who charged the ball, but couldn't get it to first in time to get Campbell.

Freshman Hayden Stone (3-0) struck out eight in 5.2 innings of relief of Carson Fulmer. Vanderbilt (49-20) gives the SEC a team in the CWS finals for the seventh straight year.

John Curtiss (2-3) took the loss for Texas (46-21).
