  4. Gamecocks fall to LSU to close out SEC tournament run Carolina tied the game at three in the ninth, but three Tigers runs in the 12th eliminate the Gamecock May 25, 2018 Box Score / Final Box / Photo Gallery / Twitter HOOVER, Ala. - LSU scored three runs in the top of the 12th inning to defeat the University of South Carolina baseball team, 6-4, in game 10 of the 2018 SEC Baseball Tournament Thursday afternoon (May 24) at Hoover Met Stadium. The Gamecocks are eliminated from the tournament after playing in a 4:17 instant classic. After a rain delay for the third straight day and an extra-inning contest before it, the Gamecocks and Tigers started two hours late, but it was worth the wait. LSU scored two runs in the top of the second as Zach Watson brought in Bryce Jordan on an infield single and Hal Hughes scored on a balk. Carolina clawed for single runs in the fourth and sixth innings. In the fourth, Jonah Bride was hit by a pitch and went to third on Justin Row's double. Carolina loaded the bases as LT Tolbert was hit by a pitch. Hunter Taylor brought in the Gamecocks' first run on a sacrifice fly to left. Then in the sixth, Row connected on his sixth home run of the year, a solo shot to left field. LSU took a 3-2 lead in the eighth. Antoine Duplantis looked to be the third out at home plate after a fly ball to right, but video review overturned the call, giving Hunter Feduccia a sacrifice fly. Carolina tied the game in the bottom of the ninth. Tolbert tripled over Watson's head in center. Jacob Olson then singled up the middle to score Tolbert. Both teams traded zeroes in the 10th and 11th. LSU then scored three in the 12th. John Gilreath retired the first two Tigers, but Duplantis reached on an error and Austin Bain walked. That set up an RBI single by Daniel Cabrera to put the Tigers up 4-3. Todd Peterson added insurance with a two-run double to left. Madison Stokes singled in a run in the bottom of the 12th, but a strikeout ended the game. Adam Hill started the game for the Gamecocks. He allowed four hits and two runs with two strikeouts and five walks in six innings of work. Gilreath took the loss, allowing three unearned runs in 2.1 innings. He allowed one hit and struck out a batter. Eddy Demurias had a pair of punchouts in his one inning of relief. Row had two hits on the day for Carolina. For LSU, Peterson earned the win on the mound, pitching five innings of relief and allowing a pair of runs on four hits with three strikeouts. GAMECHANGER An error, walk and RBI single by Daniel Cabrera happened with two out in the 12th. LSU then scored two more runs on Tood Peterson's double. KEY STAT Carolina played its longest game of the season by innings (12) and by time (4:17). This game was a minute longer than the 6-5, 10-inning loss to Ole Miss on May 6. NOTABLE Carolina went 1-2 in this year's SEC Tournament, defeating Missouri 4-2 while falling to Arkansas (13-8) and LSU. Hunter Taylor threw out two more baserunners trying to steal in the LSU contest. He has thrown out 18 baserunners this season. Carolina falls to LSU in the SEC Tournament for the second straight season. The Gamecocks lost in the semifinals to the Tigers last season. Carolina turned three double plays in the game's first four innings. UP NEXT South Carolina will turn its attention to the NCAA Tournament.

  10. 'Yeah, we're pissed': Why another SEC series win left sour taste for Gamecocks May 07, 2018 A few weeks ago, the prospect of South Carolina baseball taking two out of three games against No. 4 Ole Miss and pushing the Rebels to the brink in the third contest would have seemed too good to be true to most Gamecock fans. But after exactly that happened this Sunday, USC's players and coaches were far from jubilant. In fact, they were feeling disappointed — among other emotions. "I think every game you lose, you should be pissed. Yeah, we're pissed. It's good that we won two out of three, but we were that close to sweeping a top-five team. So it doesn't feel good," senior catcher Hunter Taylor said Sunday. With three straight SEC series wins, Carolina has played its way back into the NCAA tournament conversation and resurrected its season after a lackluster start. But with that success comes high expectations, ones that the Gamecocks are intent on holding themselves to, especially as the season winds down and the importance of each game magnifies. "Each game is important. That's why we take this game to heart," senior Madison Stokes said. "Obviously we won Friday and Saturday, but winning the series, we weren't complacent with it. We're just going to find a way to get better." Even coach Mark Kingston, who has repeated a mantra all season of not getting too high or too low, emphasized that if South Carolina is going to take a one-day-at-a-time approach that so many programs preach, that means being frustrated with a result that might not seem so terrible given the big picture. "Just right now, disappointed that we didn't win today. Because it's always about today. Friday and Saturday were great, but we came out here to win today. Today's just very disappointing," he said. Still, Kingston also acknowledged that with positive results against top programs like LSU, Vanderbilt and Ole Miss, the Gamecocks are trending in the right direction. "We're getting a lot better. And that's what you ask from your team, just get better as the season goes on. Keep working hard, deal with the ups and downs of the SEC season," he said. "I just told my team that when a top-five team comes into your park and is happy to win one game, it must mean we're getting pretty good." SEC tournament status If the season were to end today, South Carolina would be the No. 5 overall seed in the SEC tournament. The Gamecocks are currently 13-11 in conference play, behind No. 1 Florida, No. 2 Georgia and No. 3 Arkansas and tied with Ole Miss and Auburn. Because the three are not common opponents, the tiebreaker goes to the team with the best record against the top overall seed that all three have played. That's Arkansas, with Ole Miss at 2-1, South Carolina at 1-2 and Auburn at 0-3. With the fifth seed, South Carolina would have to play a first-round single-elimination game against the No. 12 seed, which is currently projected to be Mississippi State. However, the Gamecocks still have two more series left in league play, against Missouri, who is 30-18 overall but just 9-15 in SEC play, and Texas A&M, who is 34-14 overall and 12-12 in the conference. NCAA tournament hopes The latest projections from D1Baseball.com and Baseball America both have USC as a No. 3 seed in an NCAA region, one hosted by East Carolina, the other by North Carolina State. Those were from last week, but the good news for Gamecock fans is that they are likely to stay the same or improve after this weekend's series. Entering Sunday's game, South Carolina's RPI had improved from 49th entering the series to 32nd. That number dropped to No. 42 after the weekend, but Kingston's squad is on the right side of the NCAA bubble, at least for now. For reference, in mid-March, South Carolina's RPI was 120. What's more, the upcoming midweek game this Wednesday will offer USC another big opportunity to improve its RPI, going against College of Charleston and former coach Chad Holbrook. The Cougars entered this weekend 62nd in RPI and own a 32-16 record with a sweep of Georgia on their resume. SEC standings SEC East Team Conf.

  11. Gamecocks baseball makes appearance in NCAA tournament projection May 02, 2018 South Carolina baseball has been on a roll as of late, winning six of its last seven to improve to 26-18, 11-10 in the SEC. And national media outlets are starting to take notice. Analysts from D1Baseball.com included USC in the site's latest projections of the NCAA tournament field as a No. 3 seed in a regional hosted by East Carolina in Greenville, North Carolina. The other teams in the hypothetical region are Stetson and UNC Greensboro. A week ago, the Gamecocks were in D1Baseball's "Last Four Out" of the 64-team field. Meanwhile, at Baseball America, Mark Kingston's squad was not included in any capacity. D1Baseball's projections include 11 SEC teams in the field, which would be a conference record since the tourney expanded to 64 teams in 1999. A sweep of LSU and a road series win over Vanderbilt has helped South Carolina make a big leap in RPI. At its lowest point, USC was 141st in the nation in the crucial index. Now, the Gamecocks are 45th. And they'll have a big opportunity to take that number even higher this weekend when they host Ole Miss for a three-game set. The Rebels are ranked as high as No. 4 in one poll, with an RPI of 7. South Carolina's tournament résumé Record: 26-18, 11-10 SEC Conference standings: Tied for fifth in SEC, tied for third in East division Best wins: Sweep of then-No. 19 LSU, road series win over then-No. 17 Vanderbilt, sweep of Tennessee (RPI of 65) Worst losses: Swept by unranked Georgia on road, midweek losses to Furman, The Citadel, Presbyterian (all outside top 100 in RPI) Key games left: Home series vs. No. 4/7 Ole Miss, road series vs. No. 21/18 Texas A&M

  13. South Carolina storms back from 7-0 deficit to stun Vanderbilt, take series opener April 28, 2018 This past Sunday, South Carolina rallied from six runs down to defeat LSU for its biggest come-from-behind win of the year. On Friday, the Gamecocks outdid themselves, erasing a seven-run deficit to shock No. 17 Vanderbilt, 8-7, for the series-opening victory on the road in Nashville. With the victory, USC (25-17, 10-9 SEC) is above .500 in conference play for the first time this season. After two successful Game 1 starts against SEC foes recently, USC freshman right-hander Logan Chapman struggled from the start Friday. Vanderbilt sprinted to a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the first with back-to-back home runs, then added another in the second with a double and two wild pitches from Chapman. In the third, the Commodores tacked on three more runs with a leadoff bunt single, a walk, a sacrifice bunt and an RBI groundout, followed by a run-scoring triple and single. At that point, Chapman was pulled after making it through just 2 2/3 innings. In his place, redshirt freshman TJ Shook came on and stopped the bleeding, hold Vandy scoreless for 3 1/3 innings. As it turned out, that was just what South Carolina's offense needed. In the top of the fifth inning, coach Mark Kingston's squad began to chip away at the deficit, using singles from senior first baseman Matt Williams, junior right fielder Jacob Olson, junior center fielder TJ Hopkins and sophomore left fielder Carlos Cortes to push two runs across the plate. The Gamecocks completed their rally in the sixth inning, sending a parade of 11 batters to the plate for a six-run deluge. "It was just one good at-bat after another," Kingston told John Whittle of The Big Spur. "And they made a mistake here or there and we capitalized and it just took a lot of great at-bats and a lot of guys contributing." Things started with a hit-by-pitch for senior third baseman Jonah Bride, his team-leading ninth time on the season. He then advanced to third on a double to left from senior second baseman Justin Row. Williams loaded the bases on a catcher's interference call, and with the bases loaded and no outs, Olson walked in a run. Senior catcher Hunter Taylor then lofted a sacrifice fly to right field to make the score 7-4. Hopkins followed with an RBI single, which knocked Vanderbilt starter Drake Fellows out of the game, and Cortes re-loaded the bases after getting hit by a pitch. Junior shortstop LT Tolbert worked a 2-2 count before singling just past Vandy's diving second baseman, scoring two and tying the game. With Cortes on third, Tolbert then executed a delayed steal in the next at-bat and was caught in a run-down. While he managed to elude the tag and made it back to first, Cortes raced home to give South Carolina the lead. Relievers TJ Shook, Eddy Demurias and Sawyer Bridges all entered the game in tough situations — Shook with the team trailing 7-0, Demurias with a one-run lead and the leadoff runner on first, no outs, and Bridges in the ninth to close out the game. None of them allowed a hit. "They were just so good," Kingston told Collyn Taylor of Gamecock Central. "They each did what you asked them to do, and that's what good teams do. Guys know what their role is and they execute their role and give you a chance to win. So proud of that bullpen. THREE POINTS Star of the game: LT Tolbert, who was just 1-5 from the plate but drove in the game-tying runs and was instrumental in producing the game-winning score (see below). The shortstop also made several clutch plays on defense to preserve the lead once USC had it. Play of the game: The go-ahead run in the sixth inning was the result of a crafty bit of baserunning from South Carolina, who had Tolbert aggressively bait Vanderbilt into a run-down that allowed Carlos Cortes to race home from third. If it had failed, Kingston surely would have been questioned for his strategy with No. 5 batter Jonah Bride at the plate. Instead, he looked brilliant, though he slyly declined to confirm it was a designed play. "It's not textbook, but sometimes you just need to find a way to try to score a run," Kingston said. Stat of the game: Three doubles for Justin Row, who entered Friday's game with four doubles in 35 games all season. He was the only Gamecock with an extra base hit against the Commodores.

  14. South Carolina pounces on LSU early to nab SEC series win over ranked foe April 21, 2018 South Carolina baseball coach Mark Kingston is fond of saying momentum is your next starting pitcher. Coming off an 11-run drubbing of LSU in the first game of the series on Friday, USC had plenty of momentum on Saturday with ace Adam Hill on the mound and didn't waste it, scoring eight runs in the first three innings en route to an 11-4 victory and series win in front of 7,982 at Founders Park. For the second day in a row, the Gamecocks (22-17, 8-9 SEC) wasted no time in taking the lead, as sophomore left fielder Carlos Cortes singled through the right side of the infield in the bottom of the first, then advanced to second on a line drive single to left field by senior first baseman Madison Stokes. Junior shortstop LT Tolbert followed with a double to the right-center field gap, scoring Cortes and advancing Stokes to third, who scored on a wild pitch the next at-bat. On the same wild pitch, Tolbert moved to third base, which allowed him to score on a sacrifice fly from senior second baseman Justin Row. USC doubled its lead in the second inning, as junior right fielder Jacob Olson and junior catcher Chris Cullen led the frame off with singles, then both came around to score on a double from Stokes, who scored himself when Tolbert followed with his second double of the game. The Gamecocks finally knocked out LSU freshman starter Ma'Khail Hilliard in the third after Row started the inning with a walk, made it third on a double by Olson and tagged up for a run on a sacrifice fly from Cullen. Hilliard was pulled with two outs, but he picked up his final earned run of the afternoon when junior center fielder TJ Hopkins poked a single over the third baseman's shoulder, scoring Olson. Meanwhile, Hill, who was shifted from his usual Friday night slot to make way for freshman Logan Chapman, kept the Tigers at bay despite allowing a leadoff baserunner in each of the first four innings. He finished with six shutout innings and seven strikeouts for his fourth win of the season. LSU snapped its scoring drought in the top of the eighth inning off reliever Parker Coyne, utilizing a double, walk, single and home run to tally four runs. South Carolina responded, however, in the bottom half of the frame, as Stokes crushed a double to left-center gap, scoring two and giving USC double-digit runs in back-to-back games for the first time this season. THREE POINTS Star of the game: Senior first baseman Madison Stokes, who has continued his torrid stretch of play ever since coming back from injury and went 3-5 at the plate Saturday with a pair of doubles, four RBIs and two runs. Play of the game: Into the top of the fourth inning, Hill allowed a single, then walked two batters on eight pitches to load the bases with one out and give LSU a glimmer of hope. He bounced back with two strikeouts on seven pitches to emphatically slam the door. Stat of the game: One strikeout all game for South Carolina's hitters, who entered Saturday averaging roughly seven punchouts per contest. OBSERVATIONS Tigers scuffling: LSU entered this weekend series as one of the SEC's better offenses, averaging over 6.2 runs per game. So far, South Carolina's pitching staff has completely neutralized the Tiger offense, stranding 15 baserunners and holding LSU to 3-30 at the plate with runners on board. Bruised but ready: Jonah Bride and Justin Row combined to be hit by LSU pitchers three times on Saturday, including one off the helmet for Bride. But when they were actually given pitches to hit, they went 2-5 with two doubles and two RBIs.
  15. Gamecocks break up a perfect game but Arkansas ties series April 14, 2018 After surprising the nation's No. 2 team this past Friday for the upset, South Carolina baseball came crashing back to earth in a major way in the first game of a doubleheader on Sunday. Arkansas junior lefty Kacey Murphy delivered a sterling performance, not allowing a baserunner for six innings and surrendering just one hit all game as the Gamecocks lost, 2-0. The Razorbacks (26-10, 9-5 SEC) got all the offense they needed in the bottom of the second inning when redshirt senior second baseman Carson Shaddy launched a 2-0 offering from Adam Hill out of left-center field for a home run. They then added an insurance run in the bottom of the sixth inning off a hit by pitch, a single and a wild pitch. USC (20-15, 6-8 SEC), meanwhile, was baffled by Murphy and unable to force him out of the abbreviated game until the seventh inning., Due to a rainout on Saturday, SEC rules dictate that both of the games in the doubleheader Sunday must be seven innings. In the top of the seventh inning, senior second baseman Justin Row broke up Murphy's perfect game effort with a single to left field, but he was stranded at second after advancing there. THREE POINTS Star of the game: How could it not be Murphy? The 6-foot lefty came up short in his quest for a perfect game, but he still needed just 70 pitches to retire 18 batters. For South Carolina, junior staff ace Adam Hill bounced back from a rough outing against Kentucky to throw five-plus solid innings, giving up just three hits and one earned run. Unfortunately, his big mistake loomed large as his offense let him down. Play of the game: While Shaddy's home run was the deciding play of the game, Row's seventh-inning single saved South Carolina from the embarrassment of being on the receiving end of a perfect game. Stat of the game: 14 of 21 batters for South Carolina who took a first-pitch strike from Arkansas pitching, putting themselves at an immediate disadvantage that allowed the Razorbacks to keep their pitch count low. OBSERVATIONS Bride's streak snapped: Senior third baseman Jonah Bride entered Sunday's Game 1 having reached base in 30 consecutive games, a team-high. But a tough play by Arkansas's outfield in the second, a groundout to third and a flyout in the seventh ended that stretch. USC kept grounded: Against Murphy, USC had eight groundouts, seven strikeouts and just five flyouts on an extremely windy day in Fayetteville. The few times the Gamecocks did put the ball in the air, Arkansas had to make some tough defensive plays, but South Carolina simply didn't give the Hogs many chances to make mistakes. NEXT Who: South Carolina (20-15, 6-8 SEC) vs. Arkansas (26-10, 9-5 SEC) When: 4 p.m. Where: Baum Stadium, Fayetteville, Arkansas Watch: Streaming online on SEC Network Plus via WatchESPN app Listen: 107.5 FM in the Columbia, SC, area Probable pitchers: South Carolina — So.

  16. South Carolina blanked twice by Arkansas in doubleheader to drop series April 14, 2018 South Carolina's pitchers were sharp Sunday against one of the SEC's best offenses in No. 2 Arkansas. But after stealing a shocking 3-2 win on Friday, the Gamecocks offense was simply nonexistent in Sunday's doubleheader, getting shut out in both games, 2-0, 3-0. With the two losses, USC (20-16, 6-9 SEC) dropped its fourth conference series on the year and ends its eight-game road trip with a 3-5 record. Arkansas, meanwhile, righted the ship after the Razorbacks' ace Blaine Knight was outdueled in the opener by South Carolina freshman Logan Chapman. The Hogs' two starters Sunday, Kacey Murphy and Isaiah Campbell, combined with two relievers to allow just four total hits across 14 innings, two of which came from senior second baseman Justin Row. After going six innings without a baserunner to open Game 1, South Carolina avoided any potential drama about being no-hit with an infield single in the second by Row. Other than that, however, the Gamecocks produced virtually nothing on offense. Sophomore right-hander Cody Morris put together a solid start for USC, giving up just one unearned run in the first inning off two singles and a passed ball. But Arkansas added two insurance runs in the bottom of the sixth off a home run by redshirt senior infielder Carson Shaddy, his second long ball of the day. THREE POINTS Star of the day: Arkansas's pitching staff was the collective star of the show on Sunday, but for South Carolina, Morris and Hill were impressive, though imperfect. Row deserves credit for whatever meager offense South Carolina produced, contributing three of four hits. Play of the day: As mentioned above, Morris was solid through five innings, but his first inning trouble, though not earned, set the tone for a long, long day for South Carolina. Without any offensive production, Mark Kingston needed his hurlers to be perfect, and two singles back-to-back to the top of Arkansas's lineup was too much. Stat of the day: 12.9 pitches per inning for Arkansas, allowing its starters to last deep into both games. South Carolina didn't help its cause, drawing just one walk across both games.

  19. Noah Campbell sparks South Carolina's rout of Harvard March 14, 2018 After the top of the first inning took 20 minutes, perhaps Noah Campbell was antsy. South Carolina’s designated hitter was again its leadoff hitter for USC’s 12-3 rout of Harvard on Wednesday at Founders Park. Campbell was stuck to the dugout while Carolina starter Logan Champman needed 33 pitches to finally retire the Crimson. It was turning into a chilly evening, and the Gamecocks were in need of an early spark. So Campbell, a promising freshman, drew a walk, stole second and stole third by the time the second Carolina batter had ended his plate appearance. He was back in the dugout after Madison Stokes’ RBI single. Couple things to note for South Carolina (12-5) as a series with second-ranked and defending national champion Florida looms: The Gamecocks have won five straight games. Their top half of the order is heating up. Campbell, TJ Hopkins, Stokes and LT Tolbert went a combined 6-for-12 with nine RBI on Wednesday. They’re a combined 31-for-69 (.449 batting average) with 26 RBI over the last five games. USC next hosts the Gators at 7 p.m. Friday.

  24. Hill named a national player of the week by Collegiate Baseball Adam Hill struck out 14 batters for the second straight week in a win over Clemson Friday nigh March 05, 2018 TUCSON, Ariz. - University of South Carolina junior pitcher Adam Hill has been named a National Player of the Week by Collegiate Baseball, the publication announced this afternoon (Monday, March 5). Hill earns a national award after being named SEC Pitcher of the Week last Monday. Hill, a righty from Anderson, S.C., was magnificent for a second straight week, helping South Carolina to a 3-2 win over Clemson on Friday night. Hill struck out 14 batters in a no-decision, giving up two runs and two hits with two walks. It was Hill's second straight 14-strikeout performance, which ties his career-high and also tied his Founders Park record. Hill struck out seven consecutive batters from the first through third innings. That tied a school record which he shares with Alex Farotto (3/25/2007 vs. Mississippi State) and George Beam (3/4/1972 vs. N.C. State). Hill earned the Tom Price Award after Sunday's game against Clemson. The award is given to South Carolina's Most Valuable Player in the series.
