South Carolina at No. 5 Mississippi State game 3 recap: Gamecocks beat Bulldogs 10-8, avoid sweep

In a regular season full of few ups and many downs, USC ended things on a high note After the first two games in the series against Mississippi State ended in blowouts, it was hard to foresee game three going very well for South Carolina, but the Gamecocks came through in the end, beating the Bulldogs to salvage the series and lock up a trip to Hoover for the SEC Tournament. USC got on the board first, taking a 1-0 lead in the first inning thanks to a two-out home run from Andrew Eyster. MSU tied things up in the third on a leadoff homer by Justin Foscue. The tie didn’t last very long...

South Carolina at No. 5 Mississippi State, games 1 and 2 recaps: Gamecocks blown out twice by Bulldogs

The only way this ends is in a sweep, right? South Carolina lost the first and second games against Mississippi State this weekend by a combined score of 35-9, which is really bad! Probably no one who cheers for the Gamecocks expected these games to go well, but 24-7 and 11-2 final scores look a lot more like they came from a football field (though that second one would require two safeties) than a baseball diamond. Scoring highlights (if you can call them that) for USC in the first game included two RBIs from Andrew Eyster on a pair of doubles and two RBIs from Ian Jenkins on a groundout...

South Carolina football announces 2024 non-conference game against Akron

The Gamecocks now have 2 open dates remaining in 2024. South Carolina faced off against a first-time opponent in 2018 as it welcomed Akron as a replacement game for its cancelled contest against Marshall. Now, the two teams are set to play each other once more - a few years from now, that is. The Zips announced that it would visit Williams-Brice Stadium on September 21, 2014. Considering the MAC program received over $1 million to play the Gamecocks last year, it’s a move that works for both sides. “This past year we had the opportunity to play in Columbia and experience one of the...

South Carolina vs. USC Upstate game recap: Gamecocks walk off with 1-0 victory over Spartans

This season’s been rough, but winning the final midweek game of the season is nice There was almost no offense to be found in Columbia on Tuesday night, but one run was all South Carolina needed to wrap up a win against USC Upstate in the final midweek game of the 2019 regular season. Each team only had a handful of baserunners all game, and there were really no scoring chances to speak of until the ninth inning. In the top of the inning, the Spartans got the bases loaded with one out thanks to a leadoff single from Jeff Taylor, a walk, and a hit by pitch. Upstate wasn’t able to...
