After the South Carolina baseball team won its first seven games fiveby shutout there remained questions about how good it was because the schedule wasnt strong.
The Gamecocks answered with a three-game sweep of a ranked Clemson team over the weekend. They overcame a five-run deficit Friday in Columbia. They controlled Saturdays game from start to finish in Greenville. And they stunned an orange-clad crowd Sunday in Clemson with a four-run rally with two outs in the ninth inning.
Were a resilient group. We didnt give up. We fought to the last out, USC coach Chad Holbrook said. Thats a good characteristic and a good trait to have in a baseball team because it doesnt always go your way. Im glad our guys kept battling and fighting. Im proud of them.
