Baseball Falls to Georgia on Saturday Afternoon

COLUMBIA  – Georgia scored 10 runs in the final two innings of play to sweep the University of South Carolina baseball team, 14-6, Saturday afternoon (May 11) at Founders Park.

Carolina took a 4-1 lead in the third after Gavin Casas homered and the Gamecocks received help from a pair of errors. Georgia tied the game at four with a pair of runs in the sixth and one in the seventh, but Carolina then took a 6-4 lead in the seventh on Ethan Petry’s two-out double.

Georgia took the lead for good in the eighth on pinch hitter Logan Jordan’s grand slam. The Bulldogs added two runs in that inning and scored four in the ninth, highlighted by a Corey Collins home run.

Austin Brinling had three hits to lead the Carolina offense. Petry, Blake Jackson and Casas had two hits apiece. The loss went to Dylan Eskew on the mound. He allowed three runs and two hits in two-thirds of an inning. Garrett Gainey earned the start and struck out seven in 5.1 innings, allowing five hits and two earned runs.


  • The Gamecocks celebrated Senior Day before the game, honoring Dylan Brewer, Austin Brinling, Gavin Casas, Garrett Gainey, Ty Good, Parker Noland and Dalton Reeves as well as senior manager Matthew Hull, bullpen catcher Aidan Osborne and administrative assistant Julia Harrison.
  • Casas now has 27 home runs in his Gamecock career.
  • Gainey had a season-high seven strikeouts in the game.

Carolina wraps up the regular season with a three-game set at Tennessee starting on Thursday night (May 16) in Knoxville. First pitch is set for 6:30 p.m. and the game will be streamed on SEC Network Plus.
