Starting pitcher Jordan Montgomery, undoubtedly one of the best pitchers in the country, did not allow a run, and Connor Bright and DC Arendas tallied 3 RBI's a piece in the 17-4 win over Bucknell. Arendas, playing in his first game for South Carolina, helped propel a Gamecock rally when he watched the wind carry his ball just over the right field fence early in the game for his first career homerun.
The Gamecocks never looked back, as they cruised to a comfortable opening day victory in front of a lively, sold out ballpark. Bucknell scored all four runs late in the contest when a couple young South Carolina relief pitchers showed their nerves and couldn't complete the shutout for the Gamecocks.
Game 2 of the doubleheader is scheduled to start at 4:00pm in Columbia, as yesterday's opening game was postponed due to the winter storm. First pitch of the series finale is slated for 1:00pm on Sunday.
