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.
