Gamecocks swept by Florida

GAINESVILLE, FL (WIS) - Tied at 4-4 entering the bottom of the sixth inning, Florida batted around to score 10 runs on eight hits on the way to 14-5 victory over eighth ranked South Carolina on Saturday afternoon to sweep a three-game SEC series. 

South Carolina is now 27-10 and 8-7 in the league with the Gators 19-18 and 8-7 in the SEC.

 Trailing by three runs after the second inning, the Gamecocks mounted a comeback with a two-run homer by Max Schrock in the third inning and behind three scoreless innings by Jack Wynkoop and a RBI on a fielder's choice from LB Dantzler tied the game at 4-4 in the top of the sixth inning. 

The Gators struck in the bottom half of the sixth though as 10 consecutive batters reached base to open the inning on the way to 10 runs.  With Evan Beal on in relief, Harrison Bader walked on four pitches to load the bases.

The Gamecocks would bring in left-hander Vince Fiori.  The Gators counted with pinch hitter Josh Tobias who singled on the first pitch he saw from Fiori to score a run.  Casey Turgeon followed with a bloop single to left field and Richie Martin drove in two more with a base hit.  Taylor Gushue would be hit by a pitch to end the day for Fiori.  With Curt Britt on in relief, the Gators tacked on three more hits as Justin Shafer drove in two runs with a double followed by a single by Zack Powers and a double by Ramjit, his second double of the inning. 

Max Schrock went 2-for-5 with a homer and three RBI to lead the Gamecocks.  Chase Vergason and Grayson Greiner had two hits apiece. 

Florida reliever Daniel Gibson earned the win in relief for the Gators.  He is 2-0 on the year.  South Carolina freshman left-hander Jack Wynkoop suffered the loss and is now 4-2 for the season.  He allowed two runs on three hits in three innings of work.

The Gamecocks will next be in action on Tuesday, April 16 hosting College of Charleston.  First pitch is set for 7 p.m. at Carolina Stadium.
