Gamecock starter right-hander Wil Crowe suffered the loss and is now 5-5 on the season. He allowed four runs, three earned, on eight hits with one walk and nine strikeouts in 6.2 innings pitched.

Georgia went ahead 4-0 in the second inning. With one out, the Bulldogs belted out three singles to load the bases and Austin Biggar drove in the first run with a two-out infield single. With the bases loaded for the second time, Tucker Bradley drove in an additional two runs with a double to left field. Georgia brought its final run of the inning home on a passed ball.

South Carolina got on the board in the bottom of the seventh inning after Justin Row drew a leadoff walk and Jonah Bride drove him in with a double to left center, cutting the Bulldogs lead to 4-1.

The Bulldogs increased their lead to 6-1 in the top of the ninth inning. Georgia put together three consecutive singles to open the frame and take a four-run advantage. With two on and one out, Keegan McGovern added a RBI single to give Georgia a five-run lead.

The Gamecocks ninth-inning rally fell short after Row drew another leadoff walk, Carlos Cortes knocked a double to right field and Alex Destino drove in both runners with a double to left field. Georgia right-hander Zac Kristofak retired the next two batters to close out the game.
