CHARLOTTESVILLE - The Charlottesville Regional continued play Saturday morning as South Carolina defeated Evansville 4-2 in game postponed from Friday night due to weather. South Carolina will play Virginia later in the day in a winner's bracket game, while Evansville will play Lehigh in the loser's bracket.
Gamecock freshman Mike Cisco pitched the first complete game of his career, allowing two runs (one earned) on six hits. He walked four and struck out four. Adam Rogers took the loss for Evansville, allowing four runs (two earned) on eight hits in six-plus innings of work.
Justin Smoak and Trent Kline led the South Carolina offense, each going 2-3 in the contest. Kline scored twice for the Gamecocks, while Smoak drove in two. Jeff Zelenovich led Evansville by going 2-4 with 2 RBIs.
South Carolina took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first. Trent Kline hit a one-out double, advanced to third on an error before scoring on Justin Smoak's sacrifice fly.
The Gamecocks threatened again in the fourth inning, with runners on second and third and no outs, and the bases loaded with one out, but failed to score.
In the bottom of the fifth, South Carolina added to its lead with a two-out rally. After the first two batters of the inning were retired, Kline was hit by a pitch. Phil Giesler then reached on an error before Smoak picked up his second RBI of the game with a single to score Kline.
The Gamecocks tacked on another run in the bottom of the sixth. Andrew Crisp led off with a double. He was bunted over to third by Chris Brown and scored on James Darnell's single.
The Purple Aces got on the board in the top of the seventh inning. Pat Tumilty singled and advanced to second when Robbie Minor reached on an error. Zelenovich drove in Tumilty with an RBI single.
South Carolina answered in the bottom of the inning. Cheyne Hurst led off the inning with a double, reaching third when the ball was misplayed by the right fielder. He scored when Kline doubled to make the score 4-1.
In the top of the ninth, Evansville mounted a rally. Tumility received a one-out walk, then moved to second on Minor's single. Zelenovich singled to center to drive in Tumility to cut the score to 4-2. However, Cisco then got Kyle Smith to ground to short and pinch-hitter Jeff Fontaine to fly to right to end the game.
The Evansville-Lehigh game is slated for 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, with the Virginia-South Carolina game to follow at 7:00 p.m.
