Saturday Quick Recap:
The South Carolina Gamecocks squeaked out a win against the Duke Blue Devils via a clutch RBI double by Hunter Taylor in the 9th inning. While Braden Webb started the game off great, Coach Holbrook had a quick hook. Webb did not escape the early innings after issuing a couple of walks and starting another batter with a 3-0 count. Josh Reagan and Tyler Johnson combined to go the rest of the way as the Gamecocks picked up the victory.
In the other side of the bracket, the UNCW vs Rhode Island game quickly turned into a homerun derby in the early going. with 5 combined homeruns in the first 3 innings, it looked as if both teams would reach double digits easily. However, both teams settled in somewhat as UNCW pulled away for a 11-7 win to put them in the championship round.
