#2 South Carolina vs. #1 Florida, Game 3 Recap: Rain Ends Scoreless Game Early

Mother Nature didn't want us to see anymore baseball this weekend

After the start time getting pushed back by about an hour, stormy conditions in and around Columbia ended Sunday's rubber game between the Gamecocks and Gators early. They only made it to the middle of the fourth inning before a long delay, which ended with the decision to cancel the game because of continuing weather issues.

It's unfortunate, because this was a huge game with conference and national implications, and it probably would've been really enjoyable to watch these teams battle it out for a full game's worth of innings. It's also a bummer because Adam Hill was really cruising on the mound. The good news, of course, is that South Carolina maintains its lead atop the SEC, ahead of Florida by one game.

Gene Cone did not get a hit in either of his at-bats (though his streak is still alive since the game was cancelled), but he did continue his on-base streak by taking a walk, bumping that streak up to 33 games, which is the longest in the conference and the country.

The Gamecocks (34-9 overall, 15-5 in the SEC) will be back in action on Wednesday, when they host USC Upstate. First pitch is set for 7 p.m. at Founder's Park.
