Greenville Regional Day 2 Recap
Ohio State and UNCW met in a lengthy, but exciting game to open the action in Greenville on Saturday. The game went to extras, then was interrupted by a rain delay. After having a couple of runners thrown out at the plate earlier in the game, the Seahawks finally broke through in the bottom of the 13th with a walk-off single to win it. The Buckeyes were eliminated after going 0-2 in the tournament. UNCW plays in another elimination game today.
The game between South Carolina and East Carolina was significantly delayed due to bad weather in Greenville and finally got started a little after 9 p.m. The Gamecocks took an early lead and held on for a 4-2 win to advance to the Regional Final. ECU fell to 1-1 and will play in an elimination game this afternoon.

Greenville Regional Game 6 Preview: #2 South Carolina vs Winner of Game 5
The Gamecocks are in good shape on the third day of regional play, with a 2-0 record and a chance to move on to the next round. Since it takes two losses to be eliminated, this is an elimination game for South Carolina’s opponent, but not for the Gamecocks. A win by the Gamecocks will make them Regional Champions and they’ll advance to the Super Regional round. A South Carolina loss will give both remaining teams one loss and force a winner-take-all game on Monday afternoon to determine who advances to the next round.
Coach Kingston did not announce a starter for the Gamecocks after the game Saturday night, but said that it’s likely to be Logan Chapman or Carmen Mlodzinski. Thanks to an excellent outing from Cody Morris on Saturday, Carolina will have nearly all of their relievers available behind whoever ends up getting the ball to start the game.
When: Sunday, 6 p.m.
How to Watch: The game will be streaming online on ESPN3
