Steve Tollison hit a solo homer in the 10th to win it 8-7 for the Gamecocks.
The Gamecocks led most of the way before falling behind 7-5 in the eighth. They went on to tie in the top of the ninth to send it into extra innings.
The Gamecocks (12-0) had 3 errors, the Tigers (4-5) had only 1.
South Carolina, with their three homers today, have now hit at least one homer in each of their 12 games this season. Clemson hit two homers today as well.
Landon Powell has a career high eight game hitting streak going with today's homer.
Aaron Rawl started the game and went 5 1/3 innings giving up four runs on six hits. He departed the game leading 5-4.
Matt Cambell pitched just two thirds of an inning in relief of Aaron Rawl (the starter) before being replaced by Blackwell in the sixth.
Chad Blackwell (1-0, 3 saves) was brought in for the save leading 5-4 in the seventh but relenquished the lead in the same inning before retaking the lead and getting the win - his first of the season. He allowed three runs in the seventh but then settled down and shut the Tigers down for the remainder of the game - two of those runs were the result of errors committed in the field.
Two brothers faced each other for the first time in the storied history of the series when Clemson's Collin Mahoney (Jr - Pitcher) faced-off against his younger Gamecock brother Ryan Mahoney (Fr) at the plate with the game tied, two outs and runners on base. Collin won the battle but lost the war and is tagged as the losing pitcher on the day.
Gamecocks Win Game 2 At Clemson!
