  13. Another rotation shuffle as South Carolina looks to overcome slow SEC start March 28, 2019 Starting pitchers (Friday): USC — Fr. RHP Daniel Lloyd (2-1, 4.32 ERA); Auburn — So. RHP Tanner Burns (3-0, 1.41 ERA) Starting pitchers (Saturday): USC — Jr. RHP Reid Morgan (2-0, 2.56 ERA); Auburn — Fr. LHP Brooks Fuller (1-0, 1.62 ERA) Starting pitchers (Sunday): USC — TBA; Auburn — TBA Been here before: For the second year in a row, South Carolina is off to a 1-5 start in the SEC. Last season, that worked out fine, with the Gamecocks surging to a 17-13 conference mark and berth in the NCAA Super Regionals, but coach Mark Kingston doesn’t want his players complacent with that record. “You say it (about last year), you don’t talk about it too much because you don’t want to get into the habit of thinking a 1-5 start is OK,” Kingston said. “You make sure they know it in a way that they know they can bounce back, but you also don’t want them to think it’s OK either.” Another Friday freshman: Kingston and pitching coach Skylar Meade are shuffling their weekend rotation once again, switching freshman Daniel Lloyd in for freshman Wesley Sweatt as the starter on Friday night. “The stats are very clear that Wesley was in the ones in his ERA out of the bullpen, and as a starter not so much. Some decisions are pretty easy to make,” Kingston said of the move. “Danny has done enough now in his smaller roles and he did fine on the Tuesday night that he started that he gets a shot and we’ll see how he does.” The Gamecocks’ pitching depth has been ravaged by injuries this season, and at this point, Kingston is sticking with his decision to keep his best starter, junior Reid Morgan, on Saturday to theoretically give his bullpen a day of rest between games it will likely be heavily leaned upon. Cutting down on Ks: When it comes to home runs, no Power 5 team in the country hits more long balls than South Carolina, which also ranks 15th nationally in slugging percentage. But Kingston is well aware that those power numbers had led to relatively few runs, especially as of late. Hitting better with runners in scoring position and cutting down on strikeouts — USC has struck out more than any other team in the SEC — were the main points of emphasis this past week. “We’re working on it mentally, physically and mechanically. It’s very clear to everybody in this building that is what needs to change and improve,” Kingston said of his team’s strikeout issues. It’s not one single issue that’s been leading to the Gamecocks’ 250 strikeouts in 25 games, a pace that would smash the program record. “Some guys need to do a better job of shortening their swings with two strikes and getting team at-bats, some guys need to stop swinging at balls out of the strike zone, some guys need to be more aggressive on balls away from them. It’s a variety of things,” Kingston said. Things won’t be easy against an Auburn staff full of power arms, Kingston acknowledged, especially against Tigers ace Tanner Burns, who already had a 15-strikeout performance to his name this season.

  15. Gamecocks fall to NC A&T, shut out at home for first time in two years March 26, 2019 Carolina baseball had its chances to push a run across the plate Tuesday night against North Carolina A&T. But the Gamecocks’ offense vanished any time a runner reached base, and a strong pitching performance from USC went to waste in a 2-0 defeat at Founders Park. It marks the first time Carolina (16-9) has been shut out at home since UNC Greensboro did so on Feb. 19, 2017. Freshman Dylan Harley, making his first start in three weeks since being demoted from the weekend rotation, breezed through the first 2 2/3 innings, giving up a leadoff walk but nothing else. But in the bottom of the third, Harley issued a two-out walk, and the Aggies made him pay. A double from Tony Mack drove in one run, and AJ Hunt followed with a groundball single to left field. Mack was waved home and beaten by the throw, but the ball popped out of catcher Luke Berryhill’s glove, giving NC A&T a 2-0 advantage. That was the last baserunner Harley permitted all day — he exited after throwing 75 pitches over 4 2/3 innings, his longest outing of the season. He was replaced by USC’s usual Friday night starter Wesley Sweatt who was nearly perfect, giving up one hit and no walks over 3 1/3 shutout innings, aided by solid infield defense from Olson and junior shortstop George Callil. For North Carolina A&T, junior right-hander Michael Johnson went five innings, giving up three hits and two walks but no runs in a strong outing that kept the Gamecocks off-balance. Johnson was replaced by junior reliever Leon Davidson, who threw two no-hit innings and worked his way around a pair of walks. South Carolina got its best chance of the night in the fourth, with a one-out double to the left field corner from senior third baseman Jacob Olson. A sacrifice fly and walk from senior first baseman Chris Cullen then put runners on the corners, but a strikeout ended the inning. The Gamecocks also threatened in the bottom of the ninth when sophomore catcher Luke Berryhill led off with a double to right field. He advanced to third on a groundout but was stranded after two strikeouts. Three other times, USC advanced a runner to second base, but every time there were already two outs and the runner was stranded. All told, the Gamecocks were 0 for 10 with runners on base on the night. Callil had Carolina’s only other extra base hit, a double, and sophomore Noah Campbell reached base twice with a single and a walk.

  18. South Carolina rallies, but pitching can’t hold in rubber match loss at Tennessee March 24, 2019 South Carolina baseball had the chance to take its first SEC series of the season. But it slipped away. The No. 24 Gamecocks dropped a 6-3 contest and the series at No. 22 Tennessee on Sunday to fall to 1-5 in SEC play. USC (16-8) appeared to have a chance at a second one-run victory in Knoxville, but things came apart in the eighth. USC had led 3-2 after a two-run Chris Cullen double in the seventh, putting the score at the same spot as Saturday night. But the Volunteers loaded the bases with no outs and plated four runs, highlighted by Jake Rucker’s two-run single. South Carolina was down from the start as Evan Russell singled home a run in the first for the Vols. Starting pitcher T.J. Shook lasted only 3 2/3 innings, leaving in the fourth after a pair of wild pitches scored a run and followed by walking a batter. The Gamecocks managed to get one back in the fifth inning after Noah Campbell hit a one-out double and Brady Allen singled him home. USC at least got runners on, stranding 11 throughout the day, but couldn’t convert time and again. Senior pitcher Will Neely delivered a solid start for Tennessee, allowing only the single run in 5 1/3 innings, and his bullpen kept it going. The Gamecocks also started last season 1-5 in the SEC, and a homestand against the Vols helped turn things around. That sweep helped spark a run that saw USC win 17 conference games and make the NCAA tournament. Up next: South Carolina will host North Carolina A&T on Tuesday at 7 p.m. before a weekend series against Auburn in Founders Park.
