Posted: Updated:

Freshman left-hander Jack Wynkoop worked five-plus innings to earn his seventh win of the season as the Gamecocks defeated Georgia 8-3 to sweep a three-game SEC series at Carolina Stadium on Mother's Day. 

12th-ranked South Carolina is now 37-14 and 16-10 in the SEC with Georgia 18-31 and 5-19 in league play.

Wynkoop is now 7-2 on the year after going five-plus innings and allowing two runs on five hits with a walk and three strikeouts. 

Georgia starting pitcher Jared Walsh suffered the loss and is 2-4 on the year.  He allowed five runs on five hits in three-plus innings of work with five strikeouts and three walks.

Adam Westmoreland pitched three scoreless innings of relief with four strikeouts out of the bullpen.  Tyler Webb allowed one run, unearned, on two hits with two strikeouts in the top of the ninth.

Carolina's 12-hit afternoon included a 3-for-3 game for Joey Pankake as well as two hits by Grayson Greiner and Tanner English.  Both English and Kyle Martin scored two runs.  Graham Saiko and Brison Celek drove in two runs apiece. 

South Carolina is back in action on Tuesday hosting Presbyterian in the final home game of the regular season.  First pitch is at 7 p.m.
