COLUMBIA, S.C. - An 18-hour delay was of little help to Presbyterian College Baseball on Wednesday afternoon as the Blue Hose dropped a 15-0 decision to No. 15 ranked South Carolina at Carolina Baseball Park.
PC (1-7) was unable to get the bats going against their second SEC foe of the season as the Gamecocks (5-2) stymied the Blue Hose to just two hits while producing 18 hits of their own. Nate Horton ended South Carolina's no-hitter bid in the fifth while Kenny Bryant recorded the other hit in the seventh inning. Three other Blue Hose reached base off two walks and a catcher's interference.
Jesse Harmon started his second consecutive mid-week game and took his first loss of the season. The senior worked an inning and two thirds and gave up seven runs off five hits. The rest of the game was a relief by committee with six pitchers working the final six innings. Drew Wingo and Rodney Scruggs each struck out two in their appearances.
The Gamecocks scored eight runs in the second inning and added a single run in the third, two in the fifth and finally, four runs in the sixth inning.
The Blue Hose return home for a weekend series against Eastern Kentucky. The set opens on Friday afternoon at 2:30 p.m. from the PC Baseball Stadium.
