Keith Cutler, Jordan Gesling, Nate Kneebone, and Luke Gassman all singled.
Drew Weber pitched the first five and two-third innings and was credited with the loss. He allowed six runs on eight hits, walking three and striking out one. Just two of the six runs he allowed were earned.
Aiden Ladd pitched the remaining three and one-third innings and allowed a pair of earned runs while scattering six hits. Ladd did not strike out or walk a batter.
Cam Quigley, Devon Garry, Noah Vettrus, Joe Hanisch, and Zach Treiber all had two hits each for the Gamecocks; Hanisch and Vettrus both had two runs batted in.
Cole Barthel worked the first six innings of shutout ball to earn the win, scattering just four hits while not issuing a walk or striking out a batter.
Landry Knight earned a three-inning save in finishing the game. Knight did not allow a hit but walked three in allowing the lone Cardinals’ run.
The Cardinals played Mt. Vernon on Sunday, but no information was made available.
