COLUMBIA - Shaky defense and a failure to score runs early cost Clemson against South Carolina Friday night.
The Gamecocks took advantage of three Clemson errors in the bottom of the fifth, scoring five runs, and the Tigers failed to take advantage of early baserunners as No. 13 South Carolina (10-0) defeated Clemson 8-1 at Founder’s Field.
South Carolina takes a 1-0 lead in the best-of-three series. Game two is Saturday at 2:30 at Greenville’s Fluor Field and game three will be Sunday at 1 p.m. at Clemson’s Doug Kingsmore Stadium.
