Gamecocks lose rain-delayed game at College World Series

By Rick Henry - bio | email

OMAHA, Neb. (WIS) — Caleb Bushyhead homered and drove in the winning run, and Jeremy Erben and Ryan Duke worked out of bases-loaded situations in the eighth inning to lead Oklahoma to a 4-3 victory over South Carolina in the rain-plagued College World Series on Sunday night.

Carolina and Oklahoma endured two long rain delays, but were able to play their College World Series opening game. It was supposed to start at 2:00pm, but was delayed until 6:15pm because of rain and lightning.
    
In the second inning, Christian Walker, the hero of last week's super regional win, struck again with a solo shot that tied it at 1-1. Later in the second inning, Caleb Bushyhead puts the Sooners up 2-1.
    
In the fourth inning, the home run derby continued as Jackie Bradley, Jr. went deep for his 12th home run of the year, tying whit Merrifield for the team lead and evening the score at 2-2. In the bottom of the fourth, Bushyhead had an RBI single which moved Oklahoma out front 3-2.   
     
The game was halted again in the bottom of the sixth because of lightning for a two-hour delay.

South Carolina was within a run after Duke walked Jackie Bradley on four pitches with the bases loaded in the ninth, but Duke got Adrian Morales to fly out to end the game.

The Clemson-Arizona State game was postponed until Monday morning.
