South Carolina baseball team swept by Arkansas

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

South Carolina rallied from a pair of runs down to tie the game in the seventh inning but Arkansas used a two-run single from Matt Vinson in the top of the 12th inning to defeat the Gamecocks 5-3 Sunday.

17th-ranked Arkansas swept the  three-game SEC series at Carolina Stadium.  Arkansas is (17-7 and 4-2) in the SEC with 5th-ranked South Carolina (18-6 and 2-4) in league play.

In his first SEC start, freshman left-hander Jack Wynkoop allowed three runs on seven hits in 4.2 innings with four strikeouts and a pair of walks.  Effective in relief was freshman right-hander Curt Britt as he worked 1.2 scoreless and allowed just one hit and one walk while striking out a pair of batters. 

Arkansas starter Randall Fant went 6.2 innings and allowed three runs, one earned, on three hits with a walk and seven strikeouts.
