Gamecocks win all-sport rivalry series vs Clemson for fourth year in a row

South Carolina’s baseball series win in March against Clemson was the first since 2014 for the Gamecocks and the first win in the big three men’s sports since 2015.

And it likely made the final difference in South Carolina coming out on top in the all-sport rivalry Palmetto Series.

With every spring season finished, the Gamecocks held an 8.5-4.5 lead on the Tigers. Then the Gamecocks took the academic point for the 9.5-4.5 win. That means the fourth consecutive series victory.

USC went up 8-5 with the baseball win. The Gamecocks then got a win at a men’s golf event in Aiken to split that point, but Clemson reclaimed it in the NCAA men’s golf championship. A few other points were up in the air with the possibility of postseason matchups.
