Starting pitcher Adam Hill was inspiring on the mound, allowing only three hits and two runs in seven innings, but it was the Gamecock offense that, literally, made history.

The Carolina batters racked up 23 runs, the most runs scored in an NCAA tournament game by a Gamecock team.

Nine different Gamecocks drove in a run, and six Carolina batters had multiple RBI.

TJ Hopkins drove in five runs, and Gene Cone, Alex Destino and DC Arendas each finished with three RBI.

South Carolina will bring out their record-breaking offense tonight at 6 p.m. ET against UNCW. The Gamecocks will have to defeat the Seahawks twice to win the Columbia Regional.
