The Gamecocks (2-1) had 15 different players get into the game along with four pitchers. The Keydets (1-2) were out-hit 10 to 2 on the afternoon and only had one inning in which multiple runners reached base.
Chapman, who was named an opening weekend starter on Wednesday, only allowed one hit in his five innings of work to pick up the victory. He did walk four Keydets, but struck out six in his 94-pitch performance.
"When I found out I was going to be the Sunday guy, I was really excited and couldn't wait to get out there," Chapman said. "I was really anxious to get out there and compete. It's hard to explain; it was just great."
"After Friday night's tough loss, we did a really good job of bouncing back the last two days and playing the kind of baseball we want to play," Kingston said. "Had a really good day."
The Gamecocks scored a pair of runs in the second inning on wild pitches, but it was the bat that brought in four runs in the fourth.
South Carolina will return to the field on Tuesday at 4 p.m. at Founders Park to take on North Florida. The game will not be broadcast on television or streamed online, which is the last time that will be the case this season.
