Top of 1st for Holy Cross Crusaders:

After a strike out looking and a groundout, the Crusaders get a single, but leave him stranded as the next batter grounds out to complete the side.

 

Bottom 1st:

Allen grounds out, Campbell walks and then steals 2B, Milone walked, then Bowen HOMERS to left center, to clear the bases!!! Eyster walks, then Clarke reaches on a fielder's choice, Eyster out at 2B, 2 outs. Then Wimmer is hit by a pitch.....

 

3-0 Yardcocks, bottom 1st

Gamecocks bat around in the first inning. They certainly look good, through one inning, lol. Lead-off batter Allen steps up for his 2nd at-bat, and draws a walk. and Campbell grounds out to 2B for the final out of the inning......

 

6-0 Gamecocks, top 2nd inning

Bottom 4th, and score still 7-0 Gamecocks. Holy Cross goes to their 2nd reliever, which is a good thing: the 1st bullpen guy - McOsker - brought control to the game with 3 Ks in 2.0 innings, and only allowing 1 run on Eyster's solo dinger, and 2 hits total...

The 2 Holy Cross relief pitchers have combined for 4.0 innings, 6 Ks, and only 1 run off of Eyster's homer. Still 7-0 Gamecocks through 5 innings....

Carmen Mlodzinski has now pitched 6.0 innings of 5-hit shutout baseball, with 3 Ks, 0 BBs, 1 WP. He's up to 70 total pitches. His day may be soon done with it being the opening day Game 1, but Carmen's pitched a hell of a game!

 

7-0 Yardcocks, bottom 6th inning

7-0 Gamecocks, bottom 6th:

7 walks and 4 errors have done Holy Cross in today. The 4th pitcher for the Crusaders is scuffling, after the 1-out 4th error (by the SS) puts Campbell on base, then 2 stolen bases from Noah gets him to 3B, now the bases are loaded with back-to-back walks to Milone and Bowen. Still only 1 out....

With bases loaded and 1 out, Eyster is walked to force in the 8th run for the Gamecocks!! 8-0 now. Clarke tries his luck with a 1-0 line-out to 2B for the 2nd out - maybe should've let this guy throw some first: he's not finding the zone at all.

Wimmer up next - bases still loaded - he hits a 2 RBI single that drives in Bowen and Heinrich!!! Beaver grounds out to end the side, but 3 more runs score for South Carolina!!

 

10-0 Yardcocks, top 7th inning

10-0 Gamecocks, top 8th inning:

Still 10-0, nothing doing in the bottom 7th for the Gamecocks. Graham Sawyer comes in for Mlodzinski - Carmen pitched a hell of a game: 7.0 innings, 6 hits, no runs, 3 Ks, 1 BB, 1 WP, 87 total pitches. He'll get the decision to open his 2020 season.

Graham takes the mound, toes the rubber. He's ready to go - he's firing 95+ heat in there again and again and again! When his side is done, he's retired the Crusaders in order 3 up, 3 down. No hits, no runs, 3 batters, 3 strikeouts!

 

10-0 Yardcocks bottom 8th innings

Trey Tujetsch finishes off the 9th inning with a strikeout for the final out, after getting 2 fly-outs and walking one.

 

The Opening Game of the 2020 South Carolina Baseball season is in the books, as the Gamecocks defeat the Holy Cross Crusaders 10-0 behind solid pitching from Carmen Mlodzinski (1-0), and a powerful 1st inning that saw the Yardcocks plate 6 runs, which included Brian Bowen's first hit as a Gamecock, a 3-RBI HOME RUN!!!! The Crusaders struggled in the opening game, surrendering 8 free passes to first base, and committing 4 errors.

Tomorrow's Game 2 will kick off at 2 PM with the Gamecocks' Brett Kerry (So. RHP) pitching against the Crusaders' Luke Dawson (Jr. LHP)....

 

10-0 Yardcocks, Final
