SOUTH CAROLINA 6, GEORGIA 1
COLUMBIA, S.C. — Nick Ebert hit a home run as South Carolina finished a sweep of Georgia at Carolina Stadium.
Ebert finished the game 2-for-3 with two RBIs and the weekend 5-for-8 with four home runs and 10 RBIs.
“We are fighting it,” Georgia coach David Perno said in a press release. “We can’t get any consistency from anybody. Hopefully we’ll get it going. We have been fighting it for a couple of weeks. When we turn it around it will take pressure off some of the guys and we will go from there.”
