Gamecocks sweep series against Kentucky

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

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 year. 

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 three strikeouts.

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.

    Don't worry. We'll be a lot nicer to the players in the SEC than the Emmy voters were to Netflix. We kind of have to - it's highly unlikely an actor could power clean the equivalent of a human being.
