Saturday: South Carolina 7, Clemson 5 - Series tied 1 to 1 - GAME THREE: Sunday, 2:00, Carolina Stadium, Columbia, SC - It was the hardest ticket in town - trust me I found out the hard way! I was left on the outside looking in, and listened to the game on the radio. However, my brother and a couple of friends were able to go and snap a few photos for us here at Fans25. South Carolina was the team that was able to rally late this time, scoring three runs in the top of the 9th and taking the game, 7-5, to even up the series at one to one. Game three is from Columbia tomorrow....As I mentioned, Monday morning I will have a national college baseball update prepared to get everyone up to speed on what is going on with the collegiate diamond.

The overall attendance was announced on the radio at 7,200 and something - a 900 person increase over last night at Clemson. With the capacity at USC's 9,000 seat Carolina Stadium, the series will draw over 22,000 fans in three games.

This was a big win for South Carolina, who now has a chance to rally around a home crowd and take the series over top-10 Clemson. For the Tigers, this was the first loss of the year, and the first taste of defeat is never good. With a margin of victory at 1.5 runs for the winner so far, you can bet game 3 will be a good one!
