OMAHA, Neb. — For the second straight game, the Gamecocks used a pair of throwing errors to score the winning run in extra innings, as No. 4 national seed South Carolina outlasted the No. 2 national seed Florida Gators, 2-1 in 11 innings, in the first game of the best-of-three College World Series Championship Series on Monday night in Omaha.
With one out in the 11th, Christian Walker, who was playing with a fractured hamate bone in his left wrist, singled up the middle. With Walker attempting to steal second base, catcher Mike Zunino’s throw sailed into centerfield, allowing Walker to scramble to third. Centerfielder Bryson Smith’s throw then bounced past the third base bag and into the stands, allowing Walker to score the go-ahead run.
