No. 2 USC 3-9, No. 22 Tennessee 2 -6

COLUMBIA - Grayson Greiner's walk-off grand slam capped a six-run bottom of the ninth inning as South Carolina rallied from three runs down with two outs and no runners on base to defeat Tennessee for a second consecutive walk-off win on the afternoon.

Trailing 6-3 and down to their final at-bat, the Gamecocks (23-3, 5-3 SEC) made their final rally push as pinch hitter Brison Celek kept the inning alive with a base hit to center field.

Max Schrock followed with a homer to right field, cutting the deficit to one run.

After a Vols pitching change, the Gamecocks stayed alive as a fly ball off the bat of Joey Pankake was mishandled, putting the tying run on second base. Kyle Martin drew a walk and Connor Bright was hit by a 2-2 pitch to load the bases and set the stage for Greiner.

In the early game, which was the resumption of Friday night's series opener, Jordan Gore hit a one-out solo homer in the bottom of the 14th to lift the Gamecocks.
