Clemson and CCU win, Gamecocks earn split on Sunday.

South Carolina 8 Liberty 7 in game 1

Liberty 3 South Carolina 2 in game 2

The 5th ranked South Carolina Gamecocks rallied from seven runs down to beat the Liberty Flames 8-7 in game one of a double-header in Columbia on Sunday.

Kyle Martin reached on an infield single that hit Liberty pitcher Josh Richardson. Catcher Trey Wimmer's throw to first was off the mark. Lake City's Shon Carson and Graham Saiko scored, as the Gamecocks won in walk-off fashion 8-7.

Conway's Colby Holmes made the start for South Carolina. He pitched 6.1 innings, struckout four, but did not figure in the decision. Tanner English, a sophomore from Murrells Inlet, helped lead the Gamecocks comeback by scoring two runs.

In game two of the double-header, Liberty rebounded to salvage one game out of the three game series with South Carolina. The Flames beat the Gamecocks 3-2 in the nightcap.

Clemson 12 William & Mary 2

The Clemson Tigers rallied late to beat the William & Mary Tribe 12-2. Steve Wilkerson went 2-for-4 and drove in four runs for the Tigers. Clemson took two out of three in their season opening series.

Coastal Carolina 8 James Madison 7

The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers capitalized on three James Madison errors in the bottom of the ninth to record an 8-7 victory over the Dukes, at Pelicans Ballpark in Myrtle Beach. CCU swept two games from James Madison to open the season.

Coastal Carolina has added a game to its schedule to make up for Saturday's cancellation with James Madison. The Chanticleers will travel to Chapel Hill, N.C., Monday (Feb. 18) to face #1 North Carolina at 3 p.m.
