MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - Christian Walker hit a three-run homer
in the eighth inning Sunday to lead South Carolina to a 10-9
victory over Coastal Carolina and into the College World Series.
The Gamecocks (48-15) trailed 9-7 when Jackie Bradley Jr. drew a
two-out walk and Adrian Morales followed with a double off the wall
in left. Walker, a freshman, followed with a shot into the stands
in left for his seventh homer.
Closer Matt Price worked a perfect ninth for his 10th save.
Coastal Carolina (55-10) came into the NCAA super regional
series with the nation's most victories, the No. 4 overall seed and
a dynamic offense poised for its first berth in Omaha.
But the Chanticleers were outplayed in both games, including a
4-3 loss Saturday.
South Carolina will make its first CWS appearance since 2004.
