Gamecocks Drop Game Two of Series to MSU
STARKVILLE, Miss. – The South Carolina softball team dropped game two of its SEC series at Mississippi State 4-1 Saturday afternoon (Mar. 18). The Gamecocks are now 23-6 and 1-4 in the conference.
The Gamecocks potentially had something going in the third as Marissa Gonzalez looked to have a double to lead off the inning. However, after a replay review, the call was overturned, and Gonzalez called out.
The Bulldogs got on the scoreboard first with a two-run home run in the fourth. They would add two more in the fifth on a triple and a sacrifice fly.
South Carolina scored in the sixth as Brooke Blankenship singled with one out. Then with two outs, Jen Cummings doubled off the wall in right-center, scoring Blankenship from first.
