OMAHA—South Carolina beat arch-rival Clemson, 4-3, on Saturday night and will play UCLA in the CWS Finals starting Monday.
The Gamecocks broke a 2-2 tie with a pair of runs in the seventh on back-to-back RBI singles by Christian Walker and Adrian Morales. Clemson answered with a run in the eighth but could get no closer against South Carolina flame-throwing closer Matt Price, who earned the win with 2 1/3 innings of relief.
Sam Dyson was terrific on three days' rest for South Carolina, allowing two runs over 6 2/3 innings.
The Gamecocks completed their run through the losers' bracket with back-to-back wins against Clemson, just as they did in 2002.
More to come after postgame.
