Tennessee put up a four-spot in the bottom of the first and never looked back en route to a 10-2 victory over Seton Hall on a gorgeous Sunday at Lindsey Nelson Stadium in Knoxville.
The Volunteers improved their overall record to 7-0, good enough for the program's second best start ever.
Singles by Zach Luther, Zach Osborne and a double from Jared Allen highlighted the Tennessee's four-run first. The Vols tacked on one in the third, two in the fourth and three in the sixth.
The Tennessee arms were efficient all afternoon, needing just 105 pitches to get through nine innings with 71 of those being strikes.
Nick Blount (2-0) started sitting Pirate hitters down early. The 6-foot-6 right-hander gave up just two hits and one walk over six innings.
Joseph Vanderplas, Conner Stevens and Dalton Saberhagen came out of the UT bullpen and no-hit Seton Hall with a frame apiece. Nineteen of the final 20 Seton Hall batters were retired.
Frank Morris was the losing pitcher, relinquishing five hits and five runs in two innings.
Osborne's three hits and three runs led the Big Orange at the dish. Luther finished with two knocks.
Tennessee plays host to neighbor Middle Tennessee on Tuesday afternoon at 4.
