SEC Tournament game 1 recap: South Carolina falls to Florida 2-1 in extras

Stop me if you’ve heard this before: South Carolina made a quick exit from Hoover and the SEC Tournament, losing to Florida 2-1 in 10 innings on Tuesday night.

The game was scoreless until the fourth, when the Gators took a 1-0 lead on a base hit by Jac Caglianone and an error. That score held all the way until the ninth, when the Gamecocks finally ended the shutout. With one out, Braylen Wimmer and Josiah Sightler both singled, then Andrew Eyster hit into a fielder’s choice that got Wimmer home and tied the game at 1-1.

To give USC credit, they did get the game to extras, but after a quiet top of the 10th, UF managed to get a couple of hits before the winning run came on a bang-bang play at the plate that involved the ball being dropped, allowing the runner to score.
