South Carolina baseball is one of the premier programs in the nation, and they acted like it this weekend. Every year the Gamecock team is different, and each of the teams creates its own identity, but the really successful teams all share some characteristics that have become the calling card of the program. Battle and Win Anyway are two of the memorable mantras of the recent, great teams. That mindset may very well be present in this edition of the Yardcocks.
On Friday night Clemson came into Carolina stadium to try to turn the tide of a rivalry that has been dominated as of late. Jordan Montgomery didn't have his best stuff, and Clemson took advantage of it. The Tigers built a 6-1 lead and looked like they might have a nice win to begin the series. Then Clemson did what Clemson does, and Carolina did what Carolina does. Clemson plays tight, makes errors and loses; Carolina puts pressure on opposing teams, makes plays and wins. That's what happened all weekend.no comments
