Box Score

UNIVERSITY, Miss. – South Carolina (33-18, 7-13 SEC) picked up a 10-2 victory in five innings over Mississippi in the resumed game one of the series on Saturday evening at the Ole Miss Softball Complex.

The Gamecocks scored the first run on Friday night on sophomore Victoria Williams’ single, which plated junior Alaynie Page after she started the game with a double.

South Carolina added two in the second on freshman Krystan White’s sacrifice fly and Page’s RBI single. Four more crossed in the third, the first when junior Ansley Ard came home on a wild pitch. A fielder’s choice allowed the Gamecocks’ fifth run to score, while senior Sarah Mooney hit a two-run home run to make it 7-0.

Ard plated Page in the fourth with her RBI single to make it 8-0, but the Rebels got two runs closer on Allison Brown’s two-out, two-run home run to left center in the bottom of the fourth. The Gamecocks came back with two more runs in the fifth on freshman Caroline Cash’s pinch-hit RBI single and senior Kristen Struett’s groundout to put the lead back to eight.

A two-out error let the Rebels have a chance, but Gamecock redshirt senior Julie Sarratt induced a fly to center to wrap it after five.

Sarratt (17-10) picked up the win with a two-hitter, giving up two earned runs on two walks while striking out one. Madi Osias (11-12) took the loss, allowing six runs, four earned, on seven hits and a walk in 2.1 innings.

Game Changer:
The Gamecocks recaptured the momentum immediately in the resumption, with a fly ball moving runners into scoring position and another scoring a run in the first two batters.

Key Stat:
Page went 4-for-4 with two runs scored, a double and an RBI, her third four-hit game of the year.
