Brown vs. No. 3 South Carolina, game 2 final score: Gamecocks blank Bears 8-0

USA TODAY Sports

South Carolina shut out Brown in both games of today's doubleheader and remains the only undefeated team in Division I baseball.

South Carolina shut out Brown for the second game of today's doubleheader by a score of 8-0, clinching the series and preserving their perfect record.

Neither team did much of anything offensively early on, and after a fairly dull first three and a half innings, the Gamecocks took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the fourth courtesy of DC Arendas, who went yard to start the inning.

Marcus Mooney gave South Carolina some insurance when he tripled with two outs in the fifth to make it 3-0 in favor of the home team, and Connor Bright made it 4-0 when he brought home another run with a sac fly in the sixth.

The offense really woke up in the eighth inning, though. With two outs, Tanner English knocked a two-run single to pad the lead some more, then Marcus Mooney did the same thing to increase the lead to 8-0.

South Carolina starter Jack Wynkoop worked eight innings and allowed four hits, no runs, no walks, hit a batter, and struck out five.

Dave St. Lawrence pitched seven innings for Brown and gave up six hits, four runs, issued five walks, and tallied one K.

Arendas, playing in place of the injured Max Schrock, had his most impressive performance of the season in today's doubleheader. He drove in a total of six runs, giving him 12 on the season. Defensively, Kyle Martin had a particularly strong fifth inning in the field, where he was pretty much responsible for getting all three outs.
