Belcher went seven-plus innings and allowed no runs on eight hits with no walks and seven strikeouts.  Belcher has not allowed a run in 18 consecutive innings of work.  He is now 3-1 on the year. 

Webb continued his success out of the bullpen to earn his fifth save of the season.

Rider out-hit the Gamecocks 11-5 but couldn't get any runners across the plate.

South Carolina hosts USC Upstate Tuesday night.  First pitch at Carolina Stadium is set for 7 p.m.
