OMAHA—South Carolina rapped out eight hits in an eight-run second inning and coasted to an 11-4 win against Arizona State in Tuesday's College World Series elimination game. The Gamecocks survive to face the loser of tonight's Clemson-Oklahoma game on Thursday, while top-seeded Arizona State is eliminated after an 0-2 showing. The Sun Devils are the first No. 1 national seed to go 0-2 in Omaha since the 64-team format was implemented in 1999.
Sophomore center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. went 3-for-4 with a homer and four RBIs to lead the South Carolina offense. The red-hot Bradley is 5-for-8 in Omaha and is hitting .457 during his current 18-game hitting streak. Junior righthander Sam Dyson earned the win, allowing four earned runs over 7 1/3 strong innings.
More to come after postgame.
