First off, the Gamecocks lost 3-0 to Ole Miss in the first game of the SEC Tournament today. The most disappointing thing about this loss is that we more or less got the pitching and defense we needed out of a committee of midweek and Sunday pitchers but failed convert any of our seven hits into runs. This was the same problem we had against Florida last weekend. Hopefully, we'll break the trend in our next game. The good news is that we saved Cooper and Dyson for the upcoming games, but that won't matter if we can't start scoring runs. I'm keeping the faith, though.
