Kamplain improves to 4-2 on the year with freshman left-hander Thomas Burrows adding 2.2 scoreless innings of relief for his ninth save of the season.

Alabama struck first with a two-out home run off the bat of Ben Moore in the first inning, his sixth homer of the season.

South Carolina evened the game at 1-1 in the third inning after a leadoff double from DC Arendas and a pair of sacrifice hits pushed a run across including a sac fly from Marcus Mooney.

The Crimson Tide scored the go-ahead run in the seventh inning. Wade Wass opened the frame with a double to left-center and was sacrificed over to third by Kyle Overstreet. Casey Hughston drove in Wass with an RBI single through the right side.
