The South Carolina Gamecocks ended the post-season run of the Kent State Golden Flashes on Thursday with a 4-1 win to remain alive in the double-elimination portion of the College World Series.
That was just the start of a busy two days for the South Carolina as rain and an undefeated Arkansas team forced the Gamecocks to play and win three games in two days in order to win Bracket 2 of the CWS and advance to the Championship Finals series against the Arizona Wildcats.
No rest for the weary now, as the two-time defending champion Gamecocks will catch their breath on Saturday before taking a shot at their third-straight title starting Sunday night in the best of three series.
