USC announces rotation for Tennessee, Montgomery could return Sunday

Nolan Belcher will start Friday night in game one of the Tennessee series.

COLUMBIA (WACH)- The Gamecocks hit the road to Knoxville this weekend when they take on Tennessee in a three-game series. Friday's opener is set for 6:00 p.m. Saturday's game will be at 12:30 p.m. and will air on SportSouth, while the finale on Sunday is set for 2:00 p.m.

Nolan Belcher will get the start in game one. The senior left-hander is 5-2 on the season with a 1.57 ERA and has walked just one batter in 51 innings pitched. Evan Beal will start on Saturday, and sophomore Jordan Montgomery could return and start on Sunday depending on how his arm feels over the weekend. Montgomery has not pitched since the beginning of March due to a stress reaction in his throwing arm.

If Montgomery cannot go, Chad Holbrook announced Thursday that likely Colby Holmes or Adam Westmoreland could get the start.
