2014 SEC Baseball Tournament: South Carolina blanked by Mississippi State 12-0

Matt Ryerson-US PRESSWIRE

How do I erase this game from my memory?

Is there any way we can never go back to Hoover again? Because the Gamecocks + Hoover = disaster, and the latest chapter involved South Carolina getting run ruled on Wednesday night. Yes, you read that correctly. Not only did the Gamecocks not score a single run, the Bulldogs scored so many that the game was mercifully ended after just seven innings.

Mississippi State scored early and often, while the Gamecocks had trouble recording even one hit per inning. And while they didn't have a ton of chances to get on the board, USC squandered the few they did have by - stop me if you've heard this before - stranding runners on the bases repeatedly.

I could recap all of the runs the Bulldogs got and how they got those runs, but seeing as this is a South Carolina blog, I'm not going to. Suffice it to say, the Gamecocks did virtually nothing right. There were a few nice defensive plays, and Taylor Widener was cruising in relief of Jordan Montgomery, until he gave up a few base hits and then a three-run homer that started the longest seventh inning in the history of college baseball.

Carolina now joins Vandy, who also got mercy ruled, Florida, and Ole Miss in the loser's bracket. Unless they decide to get the heck out of Hoover under the cover of darkness, the Gamecocks will meet the Gators in a loser-go-home contest tomorrow. We can only hope it's nothing like tonight's game was. First pitch is tentatively scheduled for somewhere around 1:30 p.m. EDT.
