After a fun win against the Citadel Tuesday night to improve to 8-5, the Gamecocks are back in action tonight hosting the Winthrop Eagles. South Carolina leads the overall series with Winthrop 16-7.

The Eagles are 5-6 and are coming off of a Sunday win over Albany. Winthrop began the season by sweeping Maine, but lost a series to Kennesaw State the next weekend. The Gamecocks will be the third ranked team that the Eagles have faced, as they lost games against both North Carolina and Coastal Carolina.
