South Carolina kept things rolling on Sunday, beating Georgia to lock up the second SEC series in a row and mark the first time the Gamecocks have taken a series against the Bulldogs since 2013.
USC wasted no time getting on the board, taking a 1-0 lead when Brady Allen hit a leadoff solo shot in the first. UGA’s only run of the game came in the third, when they tied things up thanks to an RBI groundout by Cole Tate.
The Cocks regained the lead in the fourth inning, when Colin Burgess went yard with two outs to make the score 2-1. George Callil followed that with a single, then Allen homered again to put Carolina up 4-1. The final run of the game came in the fifth, when David Mendham and Brennan Milone walked and Burgess came through with an RBI sac fly.
Gamecocks starter Will Sanders had a fantastic outing, working eight innings and allowing eight hits but just one run, while also not walking any batters and striking four out. He got the win and is now 5-1. Julian Bosnic also pitched in this game. Bulldogs starter Jonathan Cannon took the loss and drops to 1-2. Allen and Braylen Wimmer each tallied two hits in this game, and Allen also recorded three RBI.
South Carolina improves to 19-7 overall and 6-3 in the SEC, while Georgia is now 18-9 overall and 3-6 in conference play. The Cocks will be back in action on Tuesday when they travel to take on North Carolina, with first pitch scheduled for 7 p.m. in Charlotte.
