The victory pushes the Vols to 5-0, while UNLV falls to 4-1.
The victory over the No. 29 Rebels is something of a measuring stick for the Orange & White as they took down one of the country's most dominant power arms expected to go in the top half of June's MLB First-Year Player Draft, Erick Fedde. The right-hander touched 94 on the radar, went six innings with seven hits and three walks allowed with seven strikeouts on 99 pitches.
Nick Williams was the winning pitcher, fanning six with just three hits allowed and one base on balls.
The same two teams lock up Saturday and Sunday at 1 EST.
