Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

14th ranked South Carolina beat 17th ranked Kentucky 3-1 Sunday afternoon to sweep a three-game SEC series at Carolina Stadium. The Gamecocks are 31-10 and 11-7 in the SEC with Kentucky 24-15 and 7-11 in league play.

Freshman left-hander Jack Wynkoop hurled a career-high eight innings and allowed just one unearned run and LB Dantzler hit a two-run homer, his team-leading 12th of the season, in the win.

Wynkoop did not walk a batter and struck out three to improve to 5-2 on the year.  He allowed nine hits in his eight-inning stint.  His previous long outing was six innings vs. Ball State on March 5, 2013. 

Senior left-hander Tyler Webb pitched a scoreless ninth inning with two strikeouts to earn his 12th save of the year. 

Kentucky starter Corey Littrell suffered the loss and is 4-3 on the year.  He allowed three runs on five hits in 7.2 innings with five walks and three strikeouts.

Dantzler's two-run homer in the bottom of the fourth went an estimated 410 feet. 

South Carolina next takes on  Gardner-Webb Tuesday night at Keeter Stadium in Shelby, N.C.

    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.
