Gamecocks lead 3-1 top of the 4th inning. After The Citadel scored a run in the top of the 1st inning, the Gamecocks tied the game on a solo home run from Andrew Eyster in the bottom 2nd. Then in the 3rd inning, Brady Allen hits a 2 RBI single with the bases loaded to take the lead 3-1.....

Gamecock starting pitcher Parker Coyne got roughed up in the 1st inning - he gave up 3 hits including a double and a triple, and a walk which resulted in the lone Bulldogs run. Julian Bosnic relieved Coyne starting the 2nd inning.....

Bottom 5th, Gamecocks lead 3-1:

New pitcher comes in for the Citadel. His name is Speedy, Caleb Speedy.

Gamecocks are speedy in making his night one to forget - Noah Myers singles to lead off, then Jeff Heinrich doubles to right center that Myers is able to leg out for a run: 4-1 Gamecocks.

Then Brennan Milone hits a 2-RBI HOME RUN to add to his double over the weekend as his first 2 hits as a Gamecock, and it's 6-1 Gamecocks, still 0 outs.

A new pitcher comes in for the Bulldogs, replacing Speedy. Boy, that was.....um.......fast......
