Baseball Plays in Regional Championship Game Sunday Night

– The Gamecocks will play in the NCAA Columbia Regional championship game Sunday night (June 4) at 6 p.m. Carolina will face either Campbell or North Carolina State at Founders Park.

– The Gamecocks used a third-inning Braylen Wimmer home run, four runs in the fifth frame, solid pitching from three arms and stellar defense in their 6-3 win over North Carolina State on Saturday night (June 3).

– Carolina advances to the regional championship game for the first time since 2018 and the first time at Founders Park since 2016.

– Carolina is one of four SEC schools to advance to the regional championships with two more playing for that right (LSU and Arkansas) after postponments yesterday. Carolina, Texas A&M, Tennessee and Alabama all will play tonight.

– Wimmer belted his 13th home run of the season in the third inning against NC State. It was his 31st home run of his career, which puts him in a tie for 20th in Carolina history.

– Jack Mahoney picked up his seventh win of the season, striking out six in six innings of work. Mahoney now has 80 strikeouts in 80 innings pitched.

– Chris Veach recorded his sixth save of the season, inducing a groundout and flyout to end the game. Veach is fourth in the SEC with six saves.

Carolina scored all of its runs with two out on Saturday, including four in the fifth. Four straight walks led to a Talmadge LeCroy RBI. Gavin Casas then singled in a pair and Michael Braswell brought in one with back-to-back singles.

– Carolina moved to 139-71 all-time in NCAA Tournament play.

– Carolina is hitting .329 in the regional and has a .505 on-base percentage due to 23 walks.

– Carolina is 11-2 all-time against Campbell, having played them in the 2014 Columbia Regional.

– Carolina is now 1-2 all-time against NC State in NCAA Tournament play. The Gamecocks lost a pair to the Wolfpack in the 2008 Raleigh Regional.
