The Gamecocks celebrate after winning back-to-back national titles

South Carolina’s undefeated College World Series title run ends with sweep of SEC East rival Florida BRENTON LAING sports staff writer

The South Carolina Gamecocks continued their reign over NCAA baseball Tuesday night defeating Florida in Game 2 of the College World Series finals 5-2 to win their second straight national title. The historic University of South Carolina’s victory made them the first team to go 10-0 in a NCAA tournament history, extending their streak to 16 consecutive victories in the tournament, dating back to last year’s title run. South Carolina managed to get a few players on base in the bottom of the third after Paul Mooney doubled to left field. Aided by an error from Gator shortstop Nolan Fontana, the Gamecocks put three runs on the board and never looked back. South Carolina second baseman Scott Wingo was awarded Most Outstanding Player of the series from great infield play in Game 1 that allowed the Gamecocks to pull out the first win. After the game, the senior acknowledged he was going to have to move on but that his teammates “are just going to keep on getting better.” Gamecock pitcher Michael Roth threw 7 2/3 innings, while giving up 5

hits with an ERA of 1.06. “My career jump started here a year ago so it is an amazing feeling - we battled,” Roth said, after a standing ovation. The team has learned to battle from someone who knows how to battle. Charlie Peters, now 13, was visited by the USC team as he fought off Burkitt’s Lymphoma when he was five years old. He beat the cancer and became the team’s honorary batboy. Peters was young, but he had learned never to give up during his fight, so he gave the team a poster saying “Never give up.” Coach Ray Tanner took this lesson to heart, and invited Peters back to the college world series when his team fell down 1 game to 0 against Virginia in 2010. USC went on to win that championship. When the Gamecocks made it to the series again this year, Tanner knew Peters had to be there. It seems that he was their good luck charm. First baseman Christian Walker broke his hamate bone in his final swing against UVa on Friday. It looked as if he was going to be unable to play, but he toughed through it, and after hitting five home runs in batting practice yesterday his coaches were convinced he could play. He did not disappoint and went on to have four hits in the series. The Gamecocks have earned another year to celebrate as champions.
