  1. Gamecock infielder enters the transfer portal after one season Nov. 10, 2019 The South Carolina baseball program is down an infielder after fall practice. Infielder Jonah Beamon put his name in the transfer portal on Friday a school spokesperson confirmed. He had recently finished fall practice with the Gamecocks. His name has been removed from the school’s roster. Beamon played in 24 games as a freshman, starting 10. He hit .171 with three RBi and a .326 on-base percentage. He had a game-winning hit against USC Upstate in a 1-0 win. As a high school player, Beamon was All-USA TODAY North Carolina second team honoree and multiple-time all-state player at Charlotte Christian.

  3. Observations from the Gamecocks scrimmage at NC State Oct. 02, 2019 Only a scrimmage. The scoreboard said the Gamecock baseball team was soundly beaten in its scrimmage with North Carolina State Sunday, By a score of 15-5, but Gamecock coach Mark Kingston was firm in saying the score didn’t matter. Kingston said after the scrimmage. “This is about seeing guys. This was a practice. There was a scoreboard on and we had another opponent, but this was a practice,” Kingston added to the Gamecocks approach to these games less like exhibitions and more like the joint practices that NFL teams prefer. Some of the decisions and moves he made Sunday against NC State would never happen come the 2020 regular season, he said. Kingston did get a reminder from NC State that his pitching staff has some work to do. Expected key pieces like redshirt sophomore Carmen Mlodzinski, sophomore Brett Kerry and JUCO transfers Thomas Farr and Andrew Peters didn’t take the mound, but nine pitchers did over 12 innings, and only two kept the Wolfpack from scoring runs. Kingston did acknowledge by saying. “I saw a lot of pitchers that aren’t quite ready to be pitching in games yet. Obviously we’re a little over a week into fall ball and just weren’t quite sharp. Walked too many guys today. The stuff was there, every guy we threw out there was 90-plus and a lot of guys 92-plus, but just not sharp yet this early into practice.” Kingston said those pitchers are mostly expected to form the back end of the Gamecock staff, competing for the “last few innings” not taken by Mlodzinski, Kerry and others, some of them could wind up playing key roles if the Gamecocks struggle as much with injuries as they did in the 2019 season. Who impressed Kingston? Junior John Gilreath and freshman Trey Tujetsch the most on the day. Gilreath attacked the strike zone and recorded four strikeouts in two innings, while Tujetsch induced weak contact for a 1-2-3 frame. Here’s who made the biggest impressions, both positive and negative: Colin Burgess Four Gamecock catchers got time Sunday, and freshman Jax Cash will be added to the mix in the spring when he’s fully recovered from Tommy John surgery. But freshman Colin Burgess has distinguished himself early with some solid defensive play. With the loss of Luke Berryhill to the pros and the addition of two graduate transfer options, Burgess got a little lost in the shuffle during the summer, but he’s earned a steady number of reps thus far in the fall, and he did slash a single in his lone plate appearance on Sunday. Dallas Beaver One of the Gamecock graduate transfer options at catcher, Seems likely that Beaver might not actually wind up behind the plate. He can also play third base, first base or designated hitter. What’s become increasingly clear this fall is that South Carolina needs his bat in the lineup. He backed that up with a massive home run Sunday that came off his bat at 107 miles per hour. Beaver did end the day 1-for-5 at the plate with a pair of strikeouts and a groundout into a double play. The Gamecocks relied heavily on home runs last year, to minimal effect, and Kingston said going into the fall that a more fundamental approach would be key this year. Beaver’s an experienced, powerful bat, but he’ll need to be consistent. Brady Allen The Gamecock sophomore outfielder played in every game of his rookie season but hit just .210 with 55 strikeouts against 35 walks. He did drive in 30 runs and homer seven times, but he looked noticeably improved against NC State, going 2-for-4 with a walk and an RBI. Kingston has taken note. Kingston said had this to say. “I think maturity is the best word to use on him. He’s a more mature player defensively and offensively. Last year getting to play every day and going out and playing a bunch of games in the summer has done him a lot of good, and he’s taken that next step in his development,” Brennan Milone A highly-regarded prospect out of high school taken in the 29th round of the MLB draft, Milone played all 12 innings at third base on Sunday and make a couple nice plays in the field in addition to collecting two singles and a run with some aggressive baserunning. Kingston said. “He’s a guy that’s going to be right there in the mix for us. He’s been very solid defensively and he has a chance to be a special hitter,” Noah Campbell After two impressive summers in the Cape Cod League, Campbell has showed his talent. And that alone might be enough to get him a nice draft slot next June. But after a disappointing sophomore season, he’s yet to reach to his full potential with The Gamecocks. On Sunday, he went 1-for-3 and looked decent on the field. It seems unlikely he won’t get starts and chances to prove himself in the spring, but Campbell’s still searching for the form that made Kingston so enthusiastic about him as a freshman.

  5. Third Gamecock baseball player enters transfer portal May 30, 2019 Another South Carolina baseball player is leaving the program — shortstop Nick Neville has entered the transfer portal, a team spokesperson confirmed Thursday. Neville, a junior college transfer who spent a season at Notre Dame and a season at San Jacinto College before joining South Carolina, started 19 games for the Gamecocks this season, primarily at the beginning of the year. He hit .127 with three RBIs in 63 at-bats, but struck out 27 times. He was eventually displaced from the lineup by junior George Callil. (READ MORE)

  11. Opportunity lost: Gamecocks fall apart late to hand Mississippi State win in game 2 Saturday final game of the season 2:00 pm ET May 17, 2019 Gifted a pair of runs and riding a strong outing from the staff ace, South Carolina baseball looked like it might be able to make things interesting Friday night against No. 5 Mississippi State. As the Gamecocks’ competition for the 12th and final SEC tournament spot were blown out by their respective opponents, Carolina had the chance to steal a win on the road and move ahead in the standings. Instead, it all unraveled in rapid fashion late, and USC dropped its ninth conference series on the year in an 11-2 loss to the Bulldogs. South Carolina (27-27, 7-22 SEC), Alabama and Kentucky all started and finished Friday evening tied for 12th place in the conference — Kentucky lost to Vanderbilt, and Alabama lost to Georgia. As they did in the series opener Thursday, the Gamecocks jumped out to an early lead at Dudy-Noble Field on Friday, this time with plenty of help from MSU freshman starter JT Ginn. In the top of the third, senior first baseman Chris Cullen got things started with a single, freshman second baseman Jonah Beamon moved him over on a sacrifice bunt and beat the throw to first, and sophomore left fielder Andrew Eyster walked to load the bases. Ginn then threw two wild pitches to plate a pair of runs. On the mound, Carolina junior starter Reid Morgan held the potent Bulldog lineup in check for most of the night and was efficient in doing so, only needing 77 pitches to make it through six innings.
