KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee first baseman Luc Lipcius has broken the career home run record for the Vols.

Lipcius hit a first-inning home run on Sunday in game three of Tennessee's Super Regional matchup with Notre Dame.

Lipcius and Tennessee graduate student catcher Evan Russell both set a new record in Saturday's contest with 39 home runs each. The previous record was set by Tennessee legend Todd Helton at 38.

First baseman Luc Lipcius first tied the record with Russell and Vol legend Todd Helton with a solo home run in the fifth inning with his 38th career home run.

Russell went yard for the 39th time in his time with the program with a fifth inning dinger, pushing him past Todd Helton and Lipcius.

Lipcius hit a home run earlier in the inning that tied him for the record again with Russell.

Their offensive firepower was part of an eight run inning for the Vols in which right fielder Jordan Beck had a three-run home run too.
