South Carolina baseball team swept by Arkansas

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

South Carolina rallied from a pair of runs down to tie the game in the seventh inning but Arkansas used a two-run single from Matt Vinson in the top of the 12th inning to defeat the Gamecocks 5-3 Sunday.

17th-ranked Arkansas swept the  three-game SEC series at Carolina Stadium.  Arkansas is (17-7 and 4-2) in the SEC with 5th-ranked South Carolina (18-6 and 2-4) in league play.

South Carolina senior left-hander Tyler Webb suffered the loss and is now 0-1 on the year.  In 4.2 innings, Webb allowed two runs on four hits with three walks and six strikeouts.  Webb had not allowed a run in 31.0 consecutive innings dating back to last year before the runs in the 12th inning by Arkansas.

In his first SEC start, freshman left-hander Jack Wynkoop allowed three runs on seven hits in 4.2 innings with four strikeouts and a pair of walks.  Effective in relief was freshman right-hander Curt Britt as he worked 1.2 scoreless and allowed just one hit and one walk while striking out a pair of batters. 

Arkansas starter Randall Fant went 6.2 innings and allowed three runs, one earned, on three hits with a walk and seven strikeouts.

Arkansas had 12 hits with the Gamecocks finishing with six for the afternoon. 

South Carolina is back in action on Tuesday night at College of Charleston.

    Dylan Thompson threw for three touchdowns and No. 24 South Carolina's maligned defense stood strong on a fourth-quarter goal line stand to topple No. 6 Georgia 38-35 on Saturday night.
    No. 24 South Carolina's defense showed it's not nearly as bad as it looked two weeks ago - and maybe that No. 6 Georgia isn't the runaway favorite in the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division.

    Georgia can establish itself as a top-tier beast if it gets by South Carolina this weekend - and USC would drop to 0-2 in the league with a loss. Tennessee travels to Oklahoma, where Coach Bob Stoops doesn't believe the SEC is all-powerful.
