COLUMBIA — The final game of this season’s baseball series between Clemson and South Carolina has been postponed until Monday due to inclement weather in Columbia.

The teams will now play Monday at 4 p.m. at Carolina Stadium. Junior right-hander Brody Koerner was scheduled to start for Clemson (6-3), while 12th-ranked South Carolina (7-2) will start sophomore lefthander Josh Reagan in the series finale.

The game had been scheduled for noon Sunday, but persistent rain with temperatures in the 30s forced the postponement. Monday’s forecast in Columbia calls for a high of 63 degrees with a 20 percent chance of rain.

Tickets from Sunday will still be honored. The game will be broadcast on the SEC+ digital platform.

Clemson won the opener of the three-game set 11-4 Friday night at Doug Kingsmore Stadium in Clemson, while South Carolina tied the series with a 4-1 victory Saturday at Flour Field in Greenville.

Due to weather-related rescheduling, the Gamecocks are now slated to play five games in six days. South Carolina hosts Charleston Southern on Tuesday at 7 p.m., and on Wednesday hosts High Point in a contest that was added after an earlier game against Davidson was rained out.
