14th ranked South Carolina beat 17th ranked Kentucky 3-1 Sunday afternoon to sweep a three-game SEC series at Carolina
Stadium. The Gamecocks are 31-10 and
11-7 in the SEC with Kentucky 24-15 and 7-11 in league play.
Freshman left-hander Jack Wynkoop hurled a career-high
eight innings and allowed just one unearned run and LB Dantzler hit a two-run
homer, his team-leading 12th of the season, in the win.
Wynkoop did not walk a batter and struck out three to
improve to 5-2 on the year. He allowed
nine hits in his eight-inning stint. His
previous long outing was six innings vs. Ball State on March 5, 2013.
Senior left-hander Tyler Webb pitched a
scoreless ninth inning with two strikeouts to earn his 12th save of the
Kentucky starter Corey Littrell
suffered the loss and is 4-3 on the year.
He allowed three runs on five hits in 7.2 innings with five walks and
Dantzler's two-run homer in the bottom of the fourth went an estimated 410 feet.
South Carolina next takes on Gardner-Webb Tuesday night at Keeter Stadium in Shelby, N.C.
