Bruce Thorson-US PRESSWIRE

After a thrilling weekend sweep of Tennessee, the Gamecocks are back in action against the Mountaineers on Tuesday

After a very long night Friday and an insane Saturday that featured two walk-off home runs, the Gamecocks capped off their third weekend of SEC play with a Sunday shutout of the Volunteers. South Carolina improved to 24-3 on the year and moved up again in most of the major polls. The Gamecocks will host Appalachian State Tuesday night and are 10-1 against the Mountaineers in the series history.

The Mountaineers are 8-16 overall and 3-2 in the Southern Conference. They started the year with nine straight losses against a tough slate that included road games at Arkansas, Tennessee, NC State and UNC. The Mountaineers are coming off of a series win against conference opponent UNC Greensboro. The Mountaineers are hitting .222 as a team, and currently only have one player hitting above .300. The team's on-base percentage is .313.  The team ERA is 4.12 and opponents are hitting .252 against them.

The Gamecocks are now 6-3 in conference play and will enter Tuesday's game on a 6-game win streak. The Gamecocks are hitting .301 as a team and have an on-base percentage of .376. The pitching staff has a 1.75 ERA, which is third best in the county. The Gamecocks also have the fourth best strikeout-to-walk ratio in the country at 3.59.

Junior right-handed pitcher Evan Beal will start for South Carolina in his second appearance of the season. His start last week against Coastal Carolina was excellent; he threw four hitless innings, with three strikeouts and one walk.  Appalachian State's starter will be junior left-hander Jeffrey Springs. He has an ERA of 3.38 through 29.1 innings pitched, with 26 strikeouts and 16 walks.

Start time: 7 p.m.
