The Vols won both games, beating up on the Smokies in the first inning of the second game, scoring 9 runs.
The previous day the Vols beat the Smokies 6-4. A nice way to start the season for the Vols. The Smokies ended the 1942 season at the bottom of the Southern Association with a 61-88 record. Nashville finished the regular season in second place with a 85-66 record, behind Little Rock (87-59).
