HOOVER, Ala. (AP) - South Carolina had to work late for an
opening-round win the Southeastern Conference baseball tournament.

The Gamecocks scored four times in the top of the 11th to secure

South Carolina (38-19) extended its winning streak to eight
straight games and gave the bottom four seeds a sweep over the top

a cast and he was taken to a hospital for further examination.

p.m. Alabama plays LSU at 1:30 p.m.
