#21 South Carolina vs. #6 Kentucky Game 1 Recap: Wildcats Blow Out Gamecocks 19-1

South Carolina and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad game


There is...not a lot to say about this game. Or maybe there is, but there’s not a lot to say about it that’s good. So, instant analysis: losing 19-1 is really, really, really bad.

I’m not going to give you a play-by-play of how Kentucky scored NINETEEN FREAKING RUNS, because this is a South Carolina site and because I stopped paying attention to exactly how they were scoring the runs because there were just so many of them and it was distressing. And because the people spoke on Twitter and wanted puppy gifs, and I aim to please.

The Gamecocks’ only run of the game came in the eighth inning, when Ross Grosvenor doubled to bring Carlos Cortes home. At least it wasn’t a shutout, y’all!

Starting pitcher Wil Crowe didn’t have his best stuff tonight, but he worked 4 23 innings before being replaced by Colby Lee. Graham Lawson and Sawyer Bridges also pitched in this game.

With the loss, South Carolina drops to 24-16 overall and 10-9 in the SEC, while Kentucky is now 30-13 overall and 13-6 in conference play. They’ll meet again on Saturday, with first pitch set for 4 p.m. at Founders Park.
